Um, I was able to get 1.1.3 installed, but you don't really want that
version. It's HORRIBLY broken. I have not had time to file bug reports,
but its VERY slow loading files, it has trouble with margins where it
thinks that  the page in part of my document is only 2" wide and I can't
fix it even by exporting / importing with different formats, manually
editing the XML, etc. There are many other problems with that version.

In other words, it is TOTALLY unusable for anything at all. It can't
even handle very simplistic documents.

It seems to be an in-flux development version that is not at all ready
for public consumption.
