"The Voynich Manuscript has left the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library for the first time since 1969, when antiquarian bookseller H.P. Kraus donated it to the library. The mystifying, fifteenth-century cipher manuscript was recently shipped to Washington, D.C. where it will be featured in the Folger Shakespeare Library’s upcoming exhibition, Decoding the Renaissance: 500 Years of Codes and Ciphers."

New scans are available on-line. The general feeling seems to be that they are better than the previous ones in some ways and worse in others. Maybe someone will spot something that hasn't been noticed before:
