This is great news, thanks to you and Alexander Pevzner for making it
happen. It makes me smile even if my current printer is not supported
and still requires hp-plugin.
if your device is capable of AirPrint (is network printer+has enabled
IPP+capable to be installed as '-m everywhere' model via lpadmin), there
is a good chance (unless you are unlucky like me with Laserjet m1536dnf
- supports AirPrint, but not AirScan) that it supports AirScan too.
