Ok, Here is the GnomeScan summary. Gnome has a huge lake in scan support. During the summer, I designed a glib binding on top of SANE, named libgnomescan. Based on this library, i build a set of widget in order to build consistend scan dialog. Those widget are in libgnomescanui. I build a tiny app, named flegita, that allow to as simply as possible scan a picture and write it to a file in PNG, JPEG, TIFF and PDF format. I also wrote a Gimp plugin that reuse libgnomescanui widgets. The plugin, named flegita-gimp, allow to create a new image from a scan or import a scanned image directly as a layer. Since the end of the SoC, i released some bugfix release that where packaged for edgy/universe (thanks to Motus and especially seb128). I have just implemented basic (buggy) mass acquisition that take advantage of ADF of devices. I use a system of "atomic acquisition". This mean that when user start an acquisition, the acquisition does not end at the first image, the user has to stop the acquisition, or click next if they want to continue the acquisition. This allow painless mass acquisition, even if you have a simple scanner : configure the scan, put your photo, click acquire, put the second photo, click next and loop. I still need to add a lot of workarounds in libgnomescan to handle various quirks in various SANE backend. However, I guess Gnome Scan will be ready for day to day use with Gnome 2.18 release. That's a huge challenge. I intend to follow as most as possible the Gnome 2.17 roadmap :) Yeah, i talk more than one paragraphe :) Étienne. -- Verso l'Alto !
