Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.12 Release Notes (March 17, 2022)

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

New Features


  • Reverted QR code handling when the encoding isn’t specified through ECI introduced in 6.8.0. When ECI isn’t specified, revert back to guessing the encoding. See [ECI handling] for more information on how to tweak the behavior.

  • Right guard quiet zone requirements for Gs1DatabarLimited can be relaxed via the symbology extension relaxed_sharp_quiet_zone_check.

  • Improved 1d code highlighting accuracy when glare is present on the barcode.

  • Added BarcodeTrackingSession.Reset().


Bug Fixes


  • For Kix codes, ‘X’ used as a separator character in house number fields no longer count towards the maximal length of house numbers. Previously, some valid Kix codes were rejected incorrectly.

  • The supported symbol count range for Kix has been corrected to reflect the actually supported range. Before this change, SymbologySettings.ActiveSymbolCounts for Symbology.Kix could be set to values outside the supported range.

  • Fixed the fact that the BarcodeSelectionSession was not reset as the mode was disabled (like it is the case in other modes).


  • Added support for scanning MRZ documents with front camera in IdCapture.

  • Fixed an issue that captured images of documents & document holder’s photo might have wrong colors.

  • Fixed typos in some of the WMI regions of the VIN parser results.


  • Fixed a rare crash on Android when the camera can not be opened.
