Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.8 Release Notes (June 3, 2021)

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

New Features

Performance Improvements

  • Improved 1d barcode scanning performance for codes with perspective distortion.

  • Improved decoding performance of large Data Matrix codes.

  • Improved 1d barcode reader decode range on the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 Pro.

Bug Fixes

  • Corrected encoding names to true IANA names, i.e. from “ASCII” to “US-ASCII”, from “ISO8859-x” to “ISO-5589-x” and from “UTF8” to “UTF-8”. Note that this change might break existing code. Please update your code in case it relies on these corrected encoding names.

  • Corrected reported encoding for QR codes to “ISO-8859-1” if not explicitly specified otherwise. Previous to this release, when the character encoding is not explicitly specified, the QR code reader would attempt to guess the encoding. This behaviour goes counter to what’s written in the QR code specification. The new default is to assume an encoding of ISO-8859-1 (latin-1).

  • Corrected reported encoding for (Micro-)PDF417 codes to “ISO-8859-1” if not explicitly specified with ECI. Previous to this release, in some cases “US-ASCII” was returned.

  • Fixed a rare bug that caused PDF417 codes that are part of a Composite Code to be highlighted twice.

  • Fixed a bug of routing code length in the USPS intelligent mail symbology. With this release leading zeros are newly included in routing data.

  • Fixed camera resolution not being updated on Android while in On or Standby state.

  • Fixed a bug that would cause TrackedBarcode.barcode to have an outdated position.

  • ID Capture: Fixed an issue where Residence Permit MRZ was not scanned.

  • ID Capture: Fixed an issue where CapturedId.firstName, CapturedId.lastName, CapturedId.fullName fields could have numeric characters for MRZ documents.

  • ID Capture: Fixed issues with parsing the day of expiration date for a magstripe format.

  • ID Capture: Fixed an issue with scanning some Belgian MRZ ID documents.

  • Fixed the issue where ID Capture always reported back side capture as unsupported.

  • Fixed IdCaptureOverlay is drawn after IdCapture was removed from the data capture context.

  • GS1 AI parser: Fixed an issue causing some human-readable GS1 codes to not be parsed.

  • Fixed a crash on Android that could be triggered on certain devices when deallocating the data capture view.
