New Features#

Behavioral Changes#

  • Fixed default TextCapture regular expression to accept any string including newline characters: Previously the default regex ‘.’ rejected strings with ‘n’ characters. The new default of [sS] accepts any string also including ‘n’.

Bug Fixes#

  • Fixed issues on Android devices with non-standard camera placement. This would result in sub-optimal capture behavior and an inversion of point of interest, viewfinders, location selections and other visualizations.

  • Fixed increased EAN13 false positive rate introduced in 6.5.0.

  • Fixed Codabar Mod16 checksum calculation for certain corner cases.

  • Fixed a bug in the decoding of code128 when shifting between subtypes.

  • Fixed TextCaptureSettings.recognitionDirection not being applied correctly.

API Changes#

  • Deprecated Camera.isTorchAvailable, which is now replaced by Camera.getIsTorchAvailable() and returns a Promise resolving to the torch availability, instead of the torch availability directly. This also resolves an issue with the torch availability not being properly returned on Cordova Android.
