Dear all,

A new release of Image Scan! for Linux has been made available at our
website[1].  This release updates both the core and data packages.  For
information on which versions of what packages you need, please see the
FAQ[2] on that topic.

Changes to the epkowa.desc file against the latest version in the git
repository have been attached.  If someone could yet again commit these
to sane-backends that would be appreciated.

Below is a summary of the changes since the last announcement on this
mailing list.
