A new version of gscan2pdf, a GUI to produce a multipage PDF or DjVu from a scan has been released

gscan2pdf v2.2.1 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 2.2.1:
* Clear OCR output canvas when switching pages
* Ignore trailing whitespace in error messages when filtering them
* Lock initial view of OCR output to image when switching pages
* Fix centering of OCR output when zooming with mouse wheel
* Update to German translation (thanks to Tobias Bannert)
* Update to Czech translation (thanks to Pavel Borecki)
