Hi everyone,

The second pre-release of sane-backends 1.0.13 is available at
ftp://ftp.mostang.com/pub/sane/sane-backends-1.0.13-pre2.tar.gz .

This pre-release contains a few fixes for compilation and run-time
problems on several platforms. Also the Epson 1670 should work now and
the fujitsu backend was updated.

I'll attach the NEWS file for an overview of the changes.
Please test this snapshot on every available platform and report bugs
to our bug-tracking system or to the sane-devel mailing list.

For questions and comments, please follow-up to the sane-devel mailing
list (sane-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org).

Happy scanning!
