Release notes, version 0.3, 2004-01-05

     * All mandatory TWAIN operations have been implemented.
     * This version has been tested with the OmniPage application.
     * New localization: Japanese (Thanks to RedGecko for the contribution).
     * Fixed a bug where the TWAIN capability containers were not 
dereferenced correctly.
     * Fixed a bug where the TWAIN image info reported planar rather 
than chunky byteorder.
     * Black and white images are now sent inverted w.r.t. the previous 
version because OmniPage wants it that way and GraphicConverter has an 
option that can be set to invert black and white images from TWAIN 
sources. With this option set in GraphicConverter the new version works 
with both applications.
     * Compiled on MacOS X 10.3.2 using the cross-compilation SDKs to 
provide binary packages for older versions of MacOS X.
     * A patch to the sane-backend package has been applied the work 
around the broken implementation of pthread_cancel in MacOS X. With the 
patch the test backend works again.
     * A new libusb package is provided, since a number of new MacOS X 
specific changes have been done in the cvs repository since the last 
     * sane-backends 1.0.13 (patched), libusb 0.1.8 beta (2004-01-05) 
and gettext 0.11.5.
     * maciconv 1.0 (for the 10.1 and 10.2 builds only)
