Summary: Outdated version of SANE in this new distribution

Version: Final
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: openSUSE 13.1

My shiny new Fujitsu ix500 was not found by scanimage -L. I found that 13.1
includes version 1.0.23 from 15 months ago, whereas the current version,
1.0.24, released earlier this year, does support more, newer scanners.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Plug in ix500 scanner
2.Run scanimage -L

Actual Results:
No scanner found.

Expected Results:
device `fujitsu:ScanSnap iX500:121789' is a FUJITSU ScanSnap iX500 scanner

I assume that the 1.0.24 release of sane-backends was too late for the freeze
deadline. However, this is an example of a package where it is very desirable
to keep it current, so that openSUSE supports recent hardware without undue
trouble for the user.
