Tame/2 0.9.8

July 16, 2003 by Massimo S.

Source: / Klaus Staedtler

We proudly announce the availability of Tame/2 0.9.8, the next step for the only scanning solution for SCSI, PP and USB scanners on OS/2.

Before we go into details we have to say a big THANKS to:
Franz Bakan, for extensive beta testing and Sane 1.0.12 EMX
Pierre-e Gougelet, for the permission to include NConvert.exe
Chris Wohlgemuth for the special drusctrl.dll
Maeda Haruyuki for USB Sane 1.0.12 VAC, beta testing, japanese translation
Michael Baryshnikov for russian translation and intensive tests with HPIICX.
Doug Rickman, for proofreading and code checking
Bjoern Soederstroem for swedish translation.
Guillaume Gay for french translation
Paul Ratcliffe for pr1util.dll
Armin Schwarz from Lone Peak Automation, LLC. for rxxmio.dll
David Iniesta for spanish translation
ADD Consulting for prtgraph
Anybody who provided us with scanner informations and who did beta-tests

Tame/2 is nothing more and nothing less than an bridge between your scanner, Sane (scanner Acess Now Easy), MMOS/2 and your preferred picture painting/drawing/publishing application.

Beyond simply controlling the scan process, Tame/2 supports printing and faxing from scans, uses an OS/2 "light table" to facilitate handling your scanned images, scanning from a queue, and scanning over a network.

Tame/2 currently speaks, croatian, english, french, german, japanese, russian, spanish and swedish (dutch and italian soon to be added)

And it's free

Currently known limitations: SIS chipsets don't work with USB scanners, and printers using laserjet.drv can't be used (SYS3175 with prtgraph.dll)

Note: scanner support/scanning quality depends on scanner access now easy (Sane) backends AND user support, cause - as you might imagine - sales income of
Tame/2 doesn't allow us to buy scanners for evaluating. If someone has now the idea to donate us. Don't do it, better spend the money to any volunteer based
OS/2 project like e.g.,, ...
Naturally if anybody wants to get rid of a scanner, collecting only dust, or does not know what to do with, he can contact us.
