I've used the Scribus DTP package (versions to create short 8-paged programmes and the odd poster.

However, I want to create a short electronic magazine at work and would like to start using the latest development release 1.3.5 as a lot of the bugs (mostly useability issues) have been fixed and looks like it is much nicer to use.

Hopefully, I'll be creating a few magazine articles in to test its stability. Ideally, I don't want to have to redo them in (the officially 'stable' release) as the file format is not backwards-compatible.

If anyone has used for onething relatively substantial and would like to tell us how it went, I've love to know!
