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



  • 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.

API Changes




  • 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.
