Posted by Joe Shakespeare   
Fedora This is version 1.0.15 of the sane-backends scanner drivers. This package also resolves the issues concerning device permissions for USB scanners which are always connected.

Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : sane-backends
Version     : 1.0.15
Release     : 1.4
Summary     : Scanner access software.
Description :
Scanner Access Now Easy (SANE) is a universal scanner interface.  The
SANE application programming interface (API) provides standardized
access to any raster image scanner hardware (flatbed scanner,
hand-held scanner, video and still cameras, frame-grabbers, etc.). If
they're using SANE, developers can write image-processing applications
without having to think about the peculiarities of individual devices.
SANE also makes it possible to write a device driver once, which can
then be used by any SANE-compliant application. SANE currently
includes drivers for some Epson SCSI scanners, HP ScanJet SCSI
scanners, Microtek SCSI scanners, Mustek SCSI flatbed scanners, PINT
devices, most UMAX SCSI scanners, Connectix QuickCam, and other SANE
devices via network. Note that this package does not enable network
scanning by default.  If you wish to enable network scanning, read the
saned(1) manpage.  If you'd like to develop SANE modules, you should
also install the sane-backends-devel package.

Update Information:

This is version 1.0.15 of the sane-backends scanner drivers.  This package
also resolves the issues concerning device permissions for USB
scanners which are always connected.
