Hi all,

I'm happy to announce sane-backends-1.1.1. You can find the latest 
source tarballs here:


The page also mentions several "Source code" links in the Assets from
which you can download the git repository corresponding to the release.
Please note that these archives do not include generated files such as
the configure script, Makefile.in files and more.

A nicely formatted version of the release notes is available there too.

One change that is more interesting to package maintainers is that with 
this release the version numbering scheme has been changed and thus 
every new feature release will increment the second version number (i.e. 
1.2.0, 1.3.0, etc.) and the third number (i.e. 1.1.2, 1.1.3, etc.) will 
be left for bugfix releases. Previously feature releases used the third 
version number (i.e. 1.0.30, 1.0.31, etc.) and real bugfix releases were 
not possible. With this possibility present more frequent bugfix 
releases can be expected.

There has been no 1.1.0 release. It was unpublished due to version 
numbering bug in tests that only showed itself after the release was made.

In case you encounter any issues with this release, please contact the
sane-devel mailing list or submit an issue:

nicely formatted version is available on the GitLab releases page
