Hi Karl, Florian and everyone on sane-devel,

I am in the middle of adding support for the Perfection 3170 to "Image 
Scan! for Linux".  I can't say anything about when it will be released, 

FYI, the Perfection 1670 will not be added.  It requires an interpreter 
with a license that we can't afford :-(
# There are royalty clauses in the license, so making "Image Scan! for
# Linux" available free of charge becomes, eh, well, how do I put this, 
# a bit too philantropic.
