gscan2pdf v2.1.7, a GUI to produce a multipage PDF or DjVu from a scan has been released

gscan2pdf v2.1.7 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 2.1.7:
* Report PerlMagick errors to user.
* Add note about checking policy.xml in case of ImageMagick Exception
445.
* Add %De for filename extension to default filenames directives.
* On selecting flatbed, force single-sided unless allow-batch-flatbed is
enabled
* Fixed saving PDFs with non-ASCII characters in the path and no
extension. Closes bug #312 (Bug: since v2.1.6 concerning special
characters in file path)
* Update page range before calling process (e.g. OCR, crop, etc.)
* Update to Spanish translation (thanks to Eric Brandwein)
* Update to Russian translation (thanks to Mikhail Novosyolov)
* Update to Ukranian translation (thanks to Yuri Chornoivan)
