To enable autosave in LibreOffice, go to menu Tools > Options > Load/Save > General > check Save AutoRecovery information every option > give a time value. For example, we give it 1 minute so LibreOffice will do autosave every 1 minute. You can also check Always create backup copy option so LibreOffice will always save hidden file as a copy of your current document.

Scribus 1.5 NG has released both in upstream (developer source code) and in downstream (i.e. PPA repository). Scribus 1.5 for Ubuntu is available for 14.04, 15.04, 15.10, and 16.04.
