Hamrick Software is celebrating its 10th anniversary by giving all their previous purchasers a free upgrade to VueScan 8.5.
The new version of the scanning application has just been released with more than 600 improvements since the release of VueScan 8.4 two years ago, according to the company. VueScan started life in 1998, with Version 0.1 supporting only one scanner. Now it supports more than 1200 scanners on three operating systems.
Some major improvements since VueScan 8.4 include support for multi-core processors, skew correction and multi-page documents. Support for multi-core processors means that many scans are up to 50% faster when using a dual-core processor. â€œNo other scanning software has multi-core support, and for users working with very large files this results in a significant time
saving,â€ Hamrick Software says.
