Hello List,

I just added a new software lineart (1 bit b/w) scan function for *all*
Canon imageCLASS based scanners to the Pixma backend:

    imageCLASS scanners:
    D420, D480, D530, MF810/820, MF3240, MF4010, MF4150, MF4270, MF4320,
    MF4410, MF4570dw, MF4690, MF5630, MF6500, MF8030, MF8170c
    i-SENSYS scanners:
    MF210, MF220, MF3010, MF4500, MF4700, MF4800, MF5880dn, MF5900, MF6100,
    MF6680dn, MF8200C, MF8300, MF8500C
    imageRUNNER scanners:
    laserBase scanners:

To get this function you must update your copy of Sane:

(1) clone your copy of the git repository and remake Sane now
(2) download the daily git snapshot of the unstable (development) source
from the website (http://sane-project.org/source.html) and remake or
install Sane tomorrow
(3) on an Ubuntu based OS update Sane from my PPA
(https://launchpad.net/~rolfbensch/+archive/ubuntu/sane-git) tomorrow

Please contact the mailing list if you have any problems with your scanner.
