Description Lars Henrik Ørn 2018-12-17 07:50:48 UTC

Scribus 5.4 is not a stable release, and should not be in gentoo stable, although the new version is suitable for testing. And I wonder why the old scribus 4.7 (if that was that version) was removed. According to www:// this is the newest stable version. Fileformats has been changed upstream so you cant go back to an older and stable version again.

Have a nice day

Due to slow upstream development we had no choice but to stabilise 1.5. 1.4 can not be in Portage for the simple reason alone that Qt4 was removed back in August.

Hi again
Thank you. Thats a reasonable explanation. So let's hope they will have version 1.6 ready someday .😊. Thank you for your efforts to provide help and support
