Added Latin-1 (ISO-8859-1) support for Code 128.
Improved ink spread support for DataBar.
Added add-on code (also known as extension code) recognition (EAN-2 & EAN-5). See Scan Add-On/Extension Codes for an explanation of how it works.
Added BarcodeTrackingSettings.Create() for creating a BarcodeTrackingSettings instance configured with the given scenario.
Added TrackedBarcode.Location and TrackedBarcode.GetAnchorPosition() for getting the location of a tracked barcode and the position of its anchors respectively.
Added CombinedViewfinder to display multiple viewfinders for one mode.
Added ImageFrameSource. This new type of IFrameSource allows to capture data inside UIImages (for example scanning barcodes in a UIImage).
Added DataCaptureContext.LicenseInfo containing info about the license’s Expiration. This information is not available for all license types.
Added Parser for parsing many data formats data formats.
Improved the way frames are scheduled to be processsed by the data capture context. In some circumstances, this improves the frame rate by around 40%.
Significantly improved the recognition of 1D barcodes in single and low-resolution use-cases (especially of Code128 and EAN13).
Improved MatrixScan performance in selected use cases (Shelf Management, Inventory Audit, Receiving…), please use the new BarcodeTrackingSettings.Create() to get the latests advances. You can see this being done in our MatrixScan Bubbles Sample that is distributed with the Scandit Data Capture SDK.
Deprecated TrackedBarcode.PredictedLocation and TrackedBarcode.DeltaTimeToPrediction. They are replaced by TrackedBarcode.Location which returns a continuously interpolated location instead of the previously fixed future location.
