Hi everyone,

Feature freeze for sane-backends 1.0.16 is now active. This means,
that no new backends or new features for existing backends should be
committed to CVS anymore. Bug fixes, documentation and translation
updates are still ok.

2005-07-31 Code freeze
2005-08-07 Release

There have been many changes since the last release. Therefore please
test the current version of sane-backends carefully, so all bugs are
found until release. Current snapshots are available here:
