Fedora Update Notification
2010-06-21 11:50:58

Name        : xsane
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 0.997
Release     : 8.fc12
URL         : http://www.xsane.org/
Summary     : X Window System front-end for the SANE scanner interface
Description :
XSane is an X based interface for the SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy)
library, which provides access to scanners, digital cameras, and other
capture devices. XSane is written in GTK+ and provides control for
performing the scan and then manipulating the captured image.

Update Information:

This update removes the barely used gimp-plugin-mgr script in both gimp and
xsane. The xsane-gimp package places the plugin binary now directly into the
GIMP plugin directory instead of symlinking it. If you have both "gimp" and
"xsane-gimp" installed, please test updating to the contained versions of gimp
and xsane-gimp thoroughly (e.g. use command line tools instead of the PackageKit
GUI to see eventual error messages) and verify their consistency after updating
with "rpm -V gimp xsane-gimp".    Overview of Changes from GIMP 2.6.8 to GIMP
