Backend:
Name of the backend.
The link (if present) points to more extensive and detailed information, if it exists, or the email address of the author or maintainer.

Status:
Indicates how many of the features the device provides are supported by SANE.
  • NEW! means brand-new to the current release of SANE.
  • UNMAINTAINED means that nobody maintains that backend. Expect no new features or newly supported devices. You are welcome to take over maintainership.
  • unsupported means the device is not supported at least by this backend. It may be supported by other backends, however.
  • untested means the device may be supported but couldn't be tested. Be very careful and report success/failure.
  • minimal means that the device is detected and scans at least in one mode. But the quality is bad or important features won't work.
  • basic means it works at least in the most important modes but quality is not perfect.
  • good means the device is usable for day-to-day work. Some rather exotic features may be missing.
  • complete means the backends supports everything the device can do.
