As for scribus, you might be better of looking
at http://bugs.scribus.net/roadmap_page.php
since it has been thoroughfully updated.

Cezary has stoped developpement due to a job change.
His work has partly been merged and still needs quite heavy debuging
since himself couldnt sort out the various crashes that happen
when using his code.

As for ale, you can follow his works on the epub importer
on his github repo :

There have been around 100 commits in june, mostly bugfixes
It's nice to feel the bugs disappear
and have scribus improve stability and usability.
