I just loaded scribus via yum on my wife's FC6 -- latest seems to be
126.96.36.199 on Livna.
I think it's worth the effort to learn how to compile your own, at least
from the latest official release (currently 188.8.131.52), since every once
in a while there is some issue that gets fixed yet takes a little time
to find its way to the available binaries. You can have more than one
version on your machine this way as well.
