OK, I have spent some time playing with it and there are too many bugs
for it to be usable, at least for manipulating text. I opened an old
finished document and one of the text frames was messed up, so I tried
to fix it. The text frame contained just two words, each on a separate
line and centered, with the text shrunk to 88% in height and expanded
to 107% in width for one word and 117% for the other. As I was trying
to fix it text kept disappearing, the center button didn't work on the
second line, line spacing was erratic - it was hopeless. 

I want my 1.4.3 back, or maybe 1.4.4. The Ubuntu 14.04.1 repository
does not list them. Where can I get them?
