Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.7 Release Notes (March 17th 2021)#

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

New Features#

  • Significantly improved algorithms to localize barcodes in an image. This has led to scan performance improvements especially in challenging scanning scenarios. The improvements are dependent on the individual device / symbologies used.

  • Added type definition files for TypeScript.

  • Added DataCaptureView.zoomGesture to allow zooming in and out through a gesture. The default is SwipeToZoom which zooms in with a swipe up and out again with a swipe down. The zoom factor can be customized via CameraSettings.zoomGestureZoomFactor.

  • Added DataCaptureView.focusGesture to allow focusing through a gesture. The default is TapToFocus which focuses on the point of interest when tapping. The behavior can be customized via CameraSettings.focusGestureStrategy.

  • On Android it is now possible to apply camera settings with changed CameraSettings.preferredResolution while the camera is running or during standby.

  • Added AimerViewfinder which fits well with the RadiusLocationSelection to let users aim with a dot.

  • Added Vibration.successHapticFeedback and Vibration.selectionHapticFeedback.

  • Added BarcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlay.shouldShowScanAreaGuides property.

  • Added support for Symbology.USPSIntelligentMail.

  • Added missing encoding support for ISO-8859-1 encoded DataMatrix data.

  • Added support for decoding a non-standard encoding of large 6x6 DataMatrix codes.

  • Added DataCaptureContextSettings.

  • DLID parser: neverExpires field added for Illinois ID cards that never expires.

  • DLID parser: added support for parsing non-standard header section.

  • DLID parser: added support for parsing non-standard subfile designator section.

  • DLID parser: added support for parsing some Arizona codes that pass 5-digit IIN.

  • DLID parser: added support for parsing codes with ‘HIDE2’ IIN.

  • DLID parser: added support for parsing codes from Arizona that don’t contain a IIN.

  • DLID parser: added support for parsing pre-AAMVA standard Alabama codes.

  • DLID parser: added support for parsing dates provided in non-AAMVA standard.

Bug Fixes#

  • Fixed some issues related to Fast Refresh and reloading the JavaScript layer of an application.

  • Fixed some issues related to using custom resources with Sound.

  • Removed the “companyPrefix” and “itemReference” fields from the GS1 parser GTIN (Global Trade Item Number) result and combined them to a single “GTIN” field.

  • Removed the “companyPrefix” and “serviceReference” fields from the GS1 parser GSRN (Global Service Relation Number) result and combined them to a single “GSRN” field.

  • Removed the “companyPrefix” and “serialReference” fields from the GS1 parser SSCC (Serial Shipping Container Code) result and combined them to a single “SSCC” field.

  • Fixed a crash on Android that could occur when directly switching from landscape left to right with the camera running.

  • DLID parser: fixed issue with some North Carolina codes that were treated as version 1 but in reality, they are pre-AAMVA standard codes.

  • DLID parser: eye and hair color are now always returned in english form (used to depend on encoding standard).

  • DLID parser: fixed issue that caused firstNames and lastNames fields to be empty for some codes of version 1.

  • DLID parser: fixed parsing of name fields containing ‘@’ instead of spaces and sorted in incorrect order.

  • Reduced the camera preview lag on the Kyocera Digno BX.

API Changes#

  • DLID parser: neverExpires field added for Illinois ID cards that never expires.

Deprecations#

  • Deprecated CameraSettings.maxFrameRate as the frame rate is optimized internally based on the used device. Setting max frame rate may have no effect due to camera or device-specific restrictions.

Updates#

Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.7.1 Bug Fixes (March 31st 2021)#

  • Fixed a focusing issue in the US version of the Samsung S20 (and potentially further Samsung devices) that would make the device always focus in the middle of the frame even with an off-center point of interest or even stop the device from properly focusing at all.

  • Fixed a regression introduced in 6.6.0 that negatively affected the focusing speed on some devices.

Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.7.2 Bug Fixes (April 9th 2021)#

  • Removed OpenUDID references.

Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.7.3 Bug Fixes (May 7th 2021)#
