Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.16 Release Notes (January 23rd 2023)

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

New Features

  • Increased the minimum iOS version to 13.0.

  • Added support for Rectangular Micro QR Code (standardized in ISO/IEC 23941).

  • Added support for Composite Code flag parsing for GS1-128 (Code128).

  • Added misprint correction for UPCA/EAN13 barcodes for cases where wide bars were split into two thinner bars.

  • Updated the camera behavior to overcome the scanning challenges found on the iPhone 13 Pro (Max) and iPhone 14 Pro (Max) when using the built-in camera for barcode scanning. Our testing showed that barcodes that are less than 2 cm or ~1 inch in size (and usually have such small features) were impacted.

Performance Improvements

  • Improved decoding of QR codes with slight curvature.

  • Improved detection of full range Aztec codes with some perspective distortion.

Bug Fixes

  • Improved scanning of EAN-13 codes by reducing UPCE false positives inside EAN-13 rate to below 1%.

  • Reduced UPCE and EAN-8 false positive scans in non-barcode patterns to below 1% which nearly eliminates incidents of returning a scan when pointing camera to patterns that look like barcodes.

  • Fixed the camera preview on Aquos Sense 2 models that were previously flickering.

  • Fix the issue that calling IdCapture.reset() led to decrease of performance when IdCaptureOverlay was used.


Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.16.1 Bug Fixes (February 6th 2023)

  • Added the Ean13UpcaClassification helper class to easily distinguish UPC-A and EAN-13 barcodes. Normally they are both returned as an Symbology.ean13Upca because UPC-A codes are a subset of EAN-13 instead of an entirely separate symbology.
