for OS/2 / eComStation

XSane is a powerful frontend to access scanners which are supported by an OS/2-Version of SANE.
It was written by Oliver Rauch and requires an XServer (for example XFree86 for OS/2) and a working libsane.dll.
For more information about XSane have a look at the homepage of XSane.

I have managed to build OS/2 - executables of XSane since version 0.78.
The latest version 0.992 now has been built using GTK 2 and works as plugin for Gimp 2.2.8.
It also works standalone (but you'll still need Gimp 2.2.8 installed because of all the dlls it depends on).
It has some nice new features for example it supports scan -> pdf. The drawback is, it won't work with earlier versions of GTK / GIMP.
Version 0.96 works with GTK 1.2 and GIMP 1.22.
Here's the list of what's available:
