gscan2pdf v1.2.4 released

gscan2pdf - A GUI to produce a multipage PDF or DjVu from a scan.


Only two clicks are required to scan several pages and then save all or
a selection as a PDF or DjVu file, including metadata if required.

gscan2pdf can control regular or sheet-fed (ADF) scanners with SANE via
libsane-perl, scanimage or scanadf, and can scan multiple pages at
once. It presents a thumbnail view of scanned pages, and permits simple
operations such as cropping, rotating and deleting pages.

OCR can be used to recognise text in the scans, and the output
embedded in the PDF or DjVu.

PDF conversion is done by PDF::API2.

The resulting document may be saved as a PDF, DjVu, multipage TIFF file,
or single page image file.

Changelog for 1.2.4:

* Tie PageRange widgets together
  Closes bug #165 "all or selected? a surprise that can bite like snake"
* Fix parsing the units of the resolution of imported images.
* Fix infinite loop scanning page 1 when 5+ exist.
* Parse negative progress percentages from scanimage.
* Fix scan dialog if no devices found.
