It’s time for a new release. So please welcome Gnome Scan 0.5.2 loosly codenamed « Ça ROCs » due to AbiScan dependency on this release 🙂 . Amongst other changes, here are some highlights :

  • Preview area drawning and selection
  • Action framework in flegita (added [buggy] printing feature)
  • Revamped icon handling. Use “scanner” icon from icon naming spec.
  • Resurrected Gimp plugin.
  • Several API enhancements.
  • Some bugfixes.

I encourage you to test and report as much bug as possible. There is a lot of room for improvement and some area are still untouched (e.g. processing). In the near future, i plan to improve area handling and preview area (resize, move, etc). After that, i should take a stand and design proper processing model and implement it. I need to fix printing, but GtkPrint seems not that suitable if you dissociate dialog and printing. Needs further investigation. I hope to provide 0.5.3 for october.


Please hunt the bug !

Kind regards,
