Sane2twain first alpha release

This is an alpha prototype of sane2twain, an open source twain dsm that will enable programs like PMView and Maul Publisher to acquire images from your scanner. It has just been uploaded to sanetwaina01.zip

Eventually sane2twain will enable you to scan from any twain enabled eCS orOS/2 application that correctly supports the twain standard.

Currently, sane2twain can preview an image, allows you set a selection rectangle, and will perform a scan. No other options are available at present.

It uses libsane from Paul Smedley, see http://www.smedley.info/sane.html

Alternative video drivers for eComStation

Do you need new accelerated video drivers for eComStation?

eCo Software expected the problems with video drivers so the specialists started the research of video drivers in 2005. We made good analysis of video adapters market but started the development of drivers for other family of devices. We made many mistakes (not enough resources, very complex goals) but we made an attempt.

We presented Panorama video driver at Warpstock Europe 2005 conference (Dresden, Germany).
