I promised you 0.6 for march. It’s going bad for that. 0.5.4 got few feedbacks. I have bug reports by private mail or as comment on the blog which really is noisy rather than useful. Since Fall 2007, i work on websites and Linux PPC hacking. This left Gnome Scan outside the tracks.
Once the website is up and running, i need to scan tons of photos to fill old albums. So, now i need to get Gnome Scan usable to mass scaning. Today, i updated Anjuta, GtkSourceView and Gegl, checked out latest Gnome Scan translation and fixed a couple of bugs. En vrac :
- Use 75. dpi as hardcoded preview resolution. Since most hardware can’t scan below. This is a temp solution before actually getting the least available resolution from the scanner (SANE doesn’t simplify things)
- Handle page-orientation, origin and paper size options in the right order. This lead to much more consistency between preview and result.
- Fixed a bug in Gegl due to new chanting API migration.
- Manual area also define page orientation. It’s actually a free selection.
- Show preview acquisition progress bar, again.
- Last, but not least : add a common “enhence color” processing step you can simply disable in “Processing” tab.
