gscan2pdf 1.8.9, a GUI to produce a multipage PDF or DjVu from a scan has been released

gscan2pdf v1.8.9 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 1.8.9:
* Rename preference "Open scan dialog at program start"
-> "Open scanner at program start"
* Fix killing processes on cancel
* Hide extended page numbering checkbox and source document frame unless scanner is not capable of duplex and ADF is selected. Therefore, for duplex-capable scanners, this is never shown. For duplex-incapable scanners, this is shown if the ADF is selected, but otherwise hidden.
* + support for the new API in ImageMagick 7 for unsharp mask
* For single-sided documents, hide rotate facing/reverse/both side dropdown.
* + missing documentation for Edit/Properties
* Don't reapply scan settings if value is within tolerance. Closes bug #287 (Reload recursion limit (5050) exceeded)
* Fix crash reading corrupt config file. Closes bug #288 (gscan2pdf-1.8.8 does not run in Ubuntu 16.04)
* Update to Slovak translation
