The theme of the sane irc channel (irc.freenode.net) should also be updated:

SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) | Homepage: http://www.sane-project.org |
Current versions: sane-backends 1.0.19 | sane-frontends 1.0.14 | If you
can only scan as root on Linux, read README.linux:
http://www.sane-project.org/README.linux | Please be patient, we'll
answer you if we're around.
