Yes, one side effect of the process I use is that occasionally
I introduce bugs into new versions. However, I also have
strong incentives to fix these new bugs within a day or two.
I think that people who have been downloading each new
minor version can attest to the fact that VueScan gets
better quite quicky.

The problem with this old style of development is that progress
tends to be quite slow, on the order of months or years. When
is Nikon going to fix the jaggies problem <smile>.

I'm quite proud of this new feature actually (patting himself
on the back <smile>).
