Anyone who has looked at a Scribus preferences file (scribus.rc) will be aware that the sheer amount of settings is daunting. There’s a C++ file named prefsstructs.h that defines on 470 lines of code 29 data structures too hold various settings.

Now that 1.3.5(1) is released, development has regained speed.
