New Sane version 1.0.20 released

Today, great news for all Pixma MFP owners and Linux users !

After more than now 14 months, since the last Sane version released (1.0.19), the Sane team is proud to announce the new 1.0.20 version of the Sane library, available since Monday, 3 May 2009.

This new version includes as usual, many backend updates and fixes, and especially all the latest pixma backend stuff for driving Canon Pixma scanners, formerly available only in the CVS tree.

As soon as Linux distros will have incorporated this new Sane release into new distribution releases or updates, you will not need getting and building anymore by your own, the Sane CVS code, as you probably used to do for several months.

I would like to take the opportunity of this event, to congratulate all people, contributors, testers, developers, authors, bloggers, ... who participated into this important and complex project, leading today to a very successful and satisfying result.
