Latest Version of Scribus

I am using Scribus version 1.4.8. Is the latest 1.5 version stable and ready for use? Thank you.

Formally the odd number versions are unstable, but I think the latest 1.5 version is so stable that most people use it despite it being labeled "unstable"

Do I have to delete Scribus 1.4.8 before downloading the latest 1.5 version?

hi carolyn

you can keep 1.4.8 as a 'fall back solution'. i have always different scribus versions on my computer. (sometimes 1.4.8 and 1.5.6 are running at the same time…)
as scribus 1.4.8 can't open files edited by 1.5.x, you should keep an unchanged 1.4.8 copy of your old scribus projects.

Thank you, utknik. Having both versions on my desktop will work well for me.
