Hi everyone,

I just have been convinced on IRC that it's time for a new release of
sane-backends :-)

Here is a proposal for a time table:

2004-04-10 Feature freeze
2004-04-24 Code freeze
2004-05-01 Release (isn't it a nice date?)

Feature freeze means that only bug fixes and documentation updates are
allowed. After code freeze only fixes of grave bugs that render a
backend completely unusable or break compilation and documentation
updates are accepted.

If there are any new backends that should be included in that release
please tell us NOW.

Please everyone have a look at out growing list of bugs and fix as
many bugs as possible:
Or, if the bug report is bogus, close it.

This is the NEWS file. Please check and fix if necessary:

New with 1.0.14, released 2004-05-01:
