gscan2pdf v1.8.8, a GUI to produce a multipage PDF or DjVu from a scan has been released

gscan2pdf v1.8.8 released


Five 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 libimage-sane-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 1.8.8:
* Filter out 1 and 2 digit integers from tool warnings.
Show original message, not filtered message.
Closes bug #281 (Error processing with Tesserarct: Detected 99
Diacritics)
* Add option to profile only after successfully applying it
* Fix default value for unpaper script direction.
* Fix race condition updating widgets before they can be created after
cycling device handle.
* Fix 16-bit PNM parsing
* Fix Perl warning about redundant argument in sprintf
* Update to Hungarian translation (thanks to csola)
