IMPORTANT NOTE FOR WINDOWS USERS: 'paperwork_1.0.5_win64.zip' contains ONLY Paperwork itself, NOT Tesseract. Tesseract and its data files are required to use Paperwork. The list of tesseract's data files depends on which languages you intend to use. So please do not use this .zip. Use the installer (.exe) instead.


I've just released Paperwork 1.0.5. It contains only minor bugfixes.

Paperwork-gui 1.0.5:

  • Setting the resolution on the scanner may not actually work. If it is not possible to set the resolution, fall back on the current one.
  • Improve tolerance to crappy scanner drivers: don't stop if pyinsane2.maximize_scan_area() fails

Paperwork-backend 1.0.5:

  • Doc deletion: Drop cache and close file descriptors before deleting a document. (optional on GNU/Linux, but required on Windows)

As you may have guessed, those changes are made for the Windows portage, however I think they may be beneficial too on GNU/Linux with some weird scanners/drivers.
