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

  • Removed the dependency on TypeScript, making the plugin installation faster and less error-prone on different systems.

  • For the existing dependency on WKWebView on iOS, a manual dependency addition is now required. For more information, check out how to add the SDK to your app.

  • On Android 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).

Bug Fixes

  • TextCapture now works with camera API 2.

  • Fixed the camera lag of the Algiz RT8.

  • 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.
