A new version of gscan2pdf, a GUI to produce a multipage PDF or DjVu from a scan is now available

gscan2pdf v2.5.5 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 2.5.5:
* Fix occasional error messages when clearing all pages
* Only set paper to Manual if not applying profile
* Update OCR view switching between pages with and without OCR output
* xz compress log file if xz available
* Fix bug applying paper after profile set SANE_INFO_INEXACT
* When saving current settings as new profile, actually set the profile
* If a device throws an error when opening it, add it to a session blacklist
* + option tolerance to cover buggy backends that return inexact options without setting SANE_INFO_INEXACT
* Update to Hungarian translation (thanks to csola)
* Update to German translation (thanks to Stephan Woidowski)
* Update to Spanish translation (thanks to rodroes)
