Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.5 Release Notes (October 1, 2020)

See also the System Requirements of the Scandit Data Capture SDK across all platforms.

New Features

  • Added extended ID Capture mode that supports scanning MRZ documents, US Uniformed services documents and the back of driver licenses that contains barcodes. The ID Capture API is still in beta and may change in future versions of the Scandit Data Capture SDK.

  • Setting VideoResolution.UHD4K now automatically switches to camera API 2 for supported devices. Make sure that you instantiate the camera directly with the settings instead of using Camera.applySettings().

  • Added Latin-1 (ISO-8859-1) support for Code 128.

  • Improved ink spread support for DataBar.

  • Added add-on code (also known as extension code) recognition (EAN-2 & EAN-5). See Scan Add-On/Extension Codes for an explanation of how it works.

  • Added BarcodeTrackingSettings.forScenario() for creating a BarcodeTrackingSettings instance configured with the given scenario.

  • DLID parser: firstNames and lastNames fields added.

  • DLID parser: isExpired field added.

Performance Improvements

  • Improved the way frames are scheduled to be processsed by the data capture context. In some circumstances, this improves the frame rate by around 40%.

  • Significantly improved the recognition of 1D barcodes in single and low-resolution use-cases (especially of Code128 and EAN13).

  • Improved MatrixScan performance in selected use cases (Shelf Management, Inventory Audit, Receiving…), please use the new BarcodeTrackingSettings.forScenario() to get the latests advances. You can see this being done in our MatrixScan Bubbles Sample that is distributed with the Scandit Data Capture SDK.

Bug Fixes

  • TextCapture now works with camera API 2.

  • Fixed the camera lag of the Algiz RT8.

  • Fixed a crash for barcodes that contain no data.

  • It is no longer possible to add a listener multiple times (and then have to remove it multiple times).

  • MRTD parser: Fixed the issue that metadata field contained incorrect information.

  • MRTD parser: Fixed the issue that Portugal TD1 documents were not parsed.

  • MRTD parser: Fixed the issue that caused O-0 false positive compensation not working when check digit was O.

  • MRTD parser: Fixed the issue that French ID MRTD return ISO country code in the issuingCountry field instead of the issuingState field.

  • DLID parser: Redundant commas in name field removed.

  • DLID parser: Fixed the issue that AAMVA version 1 codes showed the last name at the beginning of the name field.

  • DLID parser: Fixed the issue that some expiry dates for magnetic type of format were not parsed.

  • UsUsid parser: Fixed the issue with name ordering in name and sponsorName fields.

  • DLID parser: An incorrectly truncated field at the end of the code no longer fails the parser.

  • MRTD parser: Fixed a parser crash when the document number check digit was not present in the code.

API Changes

  • The extended ID Capture mode mentioned in the features section breaks the API of the previous version of ID Capture and is not backwards compatible.



Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.5.1 Bug Fixes (October 21, 2020)

  • Added VizResult.issuingJurisdiction and VizResult.issuingAuthority.

  • Fixed decoding of MicroQR symbols with an abbreviated terminator.

  • Increased the maximum configurable Code39 symbol count from 40 to 50.

  • Fixed a bug where there was missing sound feedback on some devices when Feedback.emit() was called right after Feedback instantation.

  • Fixed a a very dark preview on the Alcatel 1.

  • Show error when ID Capture mode is used with other data capture modes.

  • DLID parser: Some states can provide dates in two different formats: YYYYMMDD and MMDDYYYY. The parser handles both cases now.

  • DLID parser: Fixed parsing the expiration date for some Arizona codes.

  • DLID parser: Fixed parsing the issuer field for North Carolina and Arizona states as well as Newfounland and Labrador province.

  • HIBC parser: Fixed the issue that parsing secondary data with an additional lot field immidiately after 5-digit Julian date were treated as an error.

Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.5.2 Bug Fixes (October 22, 2020)

Contains no bug fixes for this platform.

Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.5.3 Bug Fixes (November 5, 2020)

  • Fixed a PDF417 scanning performance regressions introduced in 6.5.0.

  • Fixed an issue where issuing jurisdiction (for example, a US state) was not returned when scanning VIZ documents.

  • Fixed a bug in BarcodeTrackingSettings.forScenario() causing a sub-optimal performance in certain cases.
