gscan2pdf 2.0.0, a GUI to produce a multipage PDF or DjVu from a scan has been released

gscan2pdf v2.0.0 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 2.0.0:
* Switch from gtk+-2 to gtk+-3, requiring the reimplementation of
GtkImageview in pure Perl, as C library not compatible with gtk+-3.
* Fixed ghosting if flatbed only source option but not set.
Closes #290 (Page Options -> Pages: scanning only first page of n)
* Fixed setting preferences if frontend not set to libsane-image-perl
and no scanner available. Closes #291 (Cannot change temporary
