In keeping with the timetable announced on 2007-11-16, sane-backends
is now in feature freeze. Feature freeze means that only bug fixes and
documentation updates are allowed.

The remaining events (may move a few days if required):
2008-01-20 Code freeze
2008-02-03 Release sane-backends-1.0.19

After code freeze only documentation updates and fixes of grave bugs
that render a backend completely unusable or break compilation are

New backends since SANE 1.0.18:
cardscan, dell1600n_net, epjitsu, epson2, hp3900, hp5590, hs2p

Note #1:
This will be (hopefully) the last release of the SANE 1.0 series. The
next release of SANE will be extended (in a backwards compatible
fashion) to support more features of modern scanners. Please join the
sane-devel mailing list to take part in the ongoing discussions of the
future of SANE.

Note #2:
I am about to take a spin thru our bug tracker, and try to assign or
close as many bugs as possible. In particular, requests for the
creation of new backends are not 'bugs' and will be closed (after the
relevant info is transferred to the unsupported lists). Any help would
be appreciated:
