Hi everyone,

I've just added the old mustek_pp backend from sane-backends 1.0.9
back to CVS. The reason is that the new mustek_pp backend does not
support CCD scanners yet. The old (CCD) backend has been renamed to
mustek_pp_ccd to avoid conflicts with the new one. This is only a
temporary solution until the two backends have been merged.

Everyone who owns one of the supported Mustek parallel port CCD
scanners please test that backend. See man sane-mustek_pp_ccd for
details. I don't have such a scanner myself so I have only tested if
the code compiles. The man page says that these scanners are supported
by mustek_pp_ccd:

The manual pages and description files have been updated. Please also
have a look at them.

If you want to use a CVS snapshot instead of CVS directly, please wait
for the next one (2003-10-05 should include the changes).

I've also changed the mustek_pp (CIS) manual page and description file
to make clear that CCD scanners are supported by the mustek_pp_ccd
backend. Comments/Corrections are welcome.

Happy scanning,
