Scantools 0.3.1 published

Today I published the second release of scantools, a library and a matching set of linux command line programs for manipulation of graphic files, written with a view towards handling of scanned documents. Release 0.3.1 adds another command line utility, hocr2any, that converts HOCR files to PDF, text or raster graphics.

HOCR files are generated by optical character recognition programs, such as tesseract or cuneiform. Later releases of Scanntools will allow to transform JBIG2 files into PDF/A, including OCR information to make them searchable.
