Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.19 Release Notes (September 19, 2023)

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

New Features


  • SparkScan has been expanded with a range of new features:

  • Added support for the Symbology.ArUco symbology.

  • Added MatrixScan Map functionality, this feature enables the extraction of spatial data of barcodes scanned within one session. The spatial data is used to reason about how the barcodes are placed with respect to each other. This feature currently supports barcodes that have a grid-like arrangement. Each barcode will be associated with a specific location within this grid, allowing to provide direction to workers on how items are placed in relation to each other. API still in beta, see BarcodeCountSettings.mappingEnabled and BarcodeCountSession.getSpatialMap().


  • Renamed AamvaCloudVerifier to AamvaBarcodeVerifier, which allows the verification of CapturedId.

  • Added support for extracting information in Arabic script for several documents.

Behavioral Changes


Performance Improvements


  • Improved performance when a lot of symbologies are enabled when using BarcodeCapture or SparkScan.

  • Added support for Code128 with damaged end patterns (missing, fused or covered bars). This support is automatically disabled if “strict mode” is selected.

  • Improved QR code reader robustness for medium to large codes with small local deformations (e.g. crumpling, bending) or damage.

  • Improved responsiveness of AR overlays in MatrixScan and Barcode Selection.

Bug Fixes


  • Fixed the issue where the overlay for SparkScan stayed visible when it shouldn’t have.


  • Fixed multiple issues where it was sometimes not possible to scan barcodes from AAMVA driver’s licenses.

  • Fixed an issue where it was not possible to scan certain Vietnamese passports.

  • Fixed an issue where it was sometimes not possible to scan a barcode from a Pennsylvania driver’s license.

  • Fixed an issue that caused a failure of the AamvaVizBarcodeComparisonVerifier for valid IDs.

  • Fixed an issue where scanning MRZ documents in ID Capture incorrectly displayed dates for year 2000.


  • Fixed a crash in Label Capture when the view was attached to a window during updating label drawings.



  • SparkScanSettings.locationSelection is deprecated and its functionality was removed. With the introduction of smart configurations based on the scanning mode enabled by the users, the locationSelection property is not needed anymore and has been deprecated.

  • Fixed an issue affecting devices running iOS 17 and supporting macro mode, which prevented the camera from switching between wide and ultra-wide cameras.
