[scribus] the Scribus Stable branch download page

Second attempt,

sorry that my mail is often tagged as spam; this is because of my
location in West Africa.

I had another look and noticed that our download page is still untouched.

I also found out that this cover-page is run in Wordpress, which I
happen to know a little. But my wiki-login-credentials do not work there.

If somebody will make me a login, I will fix the stable-download page
(Windows only) and will not touch the other OS.

But quick request for data:

Has anybody on this list ever tried installing and running Scribus 1.4.7
on Windows XP or 2000 SP4 or Vista?

It is wise to still promote Scribus for XP? (if it does work, those
special-needs-XP-people will find out, but maybe a liability to promote
its use?)

And what about the unstable branch page?


It looks as if Scribus 1.5.4 would run under Windows 10 64bit but not
under Windows 10 32bit. I hope this is the same issue: just an
overlooked update, right?

let me know,
