I have just released OCRFeeder version 0.6.5!

Here are the main changes in this version:

  • Importing PDF files is now faster
  • The OCR engines manager dialog now allows to detect and choose to use system-wide OCR engines (this action is also used when the application is started with no engines configured)
  • Multiple content areas in OCRFeeder’s canvas can now be selected using Shift+Click
  • Introduces Ctrl+a shortcut to select all content areas in OCRFeeder’s canvas
  • The Tools menu now has the new action “Recognize Selected Areas” which will perform the automatic recognition on selected content areas of OCRFeeder’s canvas

Also, a few bugs were fixed:

  • Removed PDF files’ extension from the images generated from them
  • Sorts images when adding them from a folder
  • Selection areas are now getting selected after creating them
  • Fixed problem when quitting the application

(You can also read the full list of changes)

You can download the new tarball from GNOME’s FTP or a Debian package from here.

I’d also would like to thank the GNOME i18n Team for their work translating OCRFeeder.
