I have written about VueScan earlier it saved me from buying a new scanner because at the time back then, Epson wasn’t convinced yet to release a 64bit Vista and XP driver for my Epson Perfection 2480 Photo scanner which was just half a year old by that time.
Now they celebrate their 10th Anniversary.
Here is what the coder Ed Hamrick writes on the VueScan homepage:
“We’ve been working on VueScan for 10 years now and have made thousands of improvements in this time. We’d like to thank everyone who has ever purchased VueScan by giving them a free upgrade to VueScan 8.5.
To get your free upgrade, just click the DOWNLOAD button above. If you don’t have your old serial number, you can get your serial number online.
VueScan 0.1 was first released in 1998 with support for a single scanner on Windows only. Within 5 years VueScan supported more than 400 scanners and after 10 years of development, VueScan now supports more than 1200 scanners on 3 operating systems and in 35 languages, has been downloaded more than 5 million times and has been purchased by more than 170,000 people worldwide.
For the past ten years we’ve continued to add support for more scanners and we’ve made thousands of improvements and added hundreds of features that customers have asked for. Since we first released VueScan 8.4 two years ago, we’ve made more than 600 improvements and it’s really changed a lot in this time.
So, Happy 10th Anniversary to VueScan and thanks for your support!
Most remarkable: “We’d like to thank everyone who has ever purchased VueScan by giving them a free upgrade to VueScan 8.5.“
Well done, Ed! Wonderful decision!
Ed also sent me an email today asking me to also mention that it has been released in German too, now!
Simply update to the latest version and it will automatically change to German if your OS’ language is.
Me for my part prefers English so I changed it back in the preferences, so it’s all in English again 🙂
