Dear all,

A new version of Image Scan! has been released[1] while I was away on
vacation for a bit.  Apologies for this belated announcement.

I will post a diff for `epkowa.desc` separately because the archiver
seems to eat the body of posts with attachments (see e.g. [2]).

Now for the details:

 iscan-2.19.0                                             (2009-03-10)
  * adds support for the following devices:
    - Epson ES-D400 (requires esci-interpreter-gt-s80)
    - Epson GT-S50 (requires esci-interpreter-gt-s80)
    - Epson GT-S80 (requires esci-interpreter-gt-s80)
    - Epson ME Office 700FW

As with previous releases:

 The latest version of Image Scan! for Linux now is (and should remain)
 available directly from the download page for _all_ models, unless we
 know for a fact it will not work for a particular model.  For certain
 models we also provide older, tested versions as a fallback.  This is
 so you can revert in case of bugs that went unnoticed in the latest,
 greatest version.

 # We can't possibly test all the supported models all of the time and
 # still expect to release in a reasonable time frame.  If you happen
 # to find a bug in the latest version, please report it[3].
