Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.5 Release Notes (October 1st 2020)#

Version 6.5 marks the initial release of Scandit Data Capture SDK for React Native. It is a major update over the 5.x Scandit SDK and introduces new APIs and additional features. This release is not compatible with 5.x and will require code changes in your application. Take a look at our migration guide for how to upgrade your app from 5.x to 6.x.

New Features#

  • Modernized and modularized API for more fine-grained control and better extensibility for future data capture technologies.

  • Improved use of multi core architectures of mobile devices with speedup of 2-3x depending on settings and number of cores.

  • Simplified interface for configuring the scan area and code selection.

Behavioral Changes#

This section contains a list of behavioral changes between 5.x and 6.x

  • The short 43 character legacy app keys supported in 4.x and 5.x have been deprecated and are not compatible with 6.x anymore. Please contact support@scandit.com to get your new license keys.

  • It is now an error to enable symbologies that are not supported by your app key. In 5.x, these symbologies would silently be disabled without any warning.

  • EAN13 and UPCA used to be separate symbologies in Scandit SDK 5.x, but are now merged into one symbology called EAN13/UPCA.

  • Barcode capture: The default code duplicate filter has been changed from 500ms to 0ms, meaning that codes that are scanned are reported every frame.
