IMPROVED

  • Upgraded to the latest algorithm.

FIXED

  • Fixed an issue where decoding a URL did not work on iOS Safari.
  • Fixed a module loading issue on MacOS 10.15 x Safari 13.0.2.

7.4.0.1 (05/18/2020)

IMPROVED

  • Improved error handling for decoding methods.

FIXED

  • Fixed a bug where decoding MaxiCode barcodes could cause an out of memory exception.
  • Fixed a bug where partial DotCode and Postal Code results were not returned when using an expired license.

7.4 (05/12/2020)

NEW

  • Added a new barcode type Dotcode.
  • Added the morphology algorithm for image preprocessing.
  • Added the pixel formats IPF_ABGR_8888, IPF_ABGR_16161616 and IPF_BGR_888 to support more image buffer types.
  • Added a new intermediate result type IRT_PREDETECTED_QUADRILATERAL.
  • Added a new result data type IMRDT_QUADRILATERAL.

  • Enhanced deformation resistance for QR.
  • Optimized the algorithm for reading large-size dense QR and DataMatrix.
  • Optimized the algorithm for 1D barcode deblurring.
  • Simplified DPM configuration so that you only need to set DPMCodeReadingMode to enable it.

FIXED

  • Fixed a bug where Safari fails to open the video stream on some iPhones running iOS 12.

7.3.0-v4 (7.3.0.4) (04/02/2020)

NEW

  • Added support for Electron and NW.js. Official samples now provided.
  • Added an official sample for Nuxt.js.
  • Added error checking for unsupported symbologies for the compact edition.

IMPROVED

  • Improved the error messages for the scenario where no camera can be found.

FIXED

  • Fixed the bug in previous versions where an Android device may be miscounted as a Linux device.

7.3.0-v2 (7.3.0.2) (02/14/2020)

IMPROVED

  • Improved the process to release a camera in use. This makes it easier to destroy a Barcode Scanner instance in a component (Angular, Vue, React, etc.)

FIXED

  • Fixed the bug on iOS 12 where 1D barcode can’t be read by a Barcode Scanner instance when the default “speed” template is used by fixing the localization mode “LM_CONNECTED_BLOCKS” and restoring it as the default mode.

7.3.0-v1 (7.3.0.1) (01/20/2020)

FIXED

  • Fixed a bug on iOS 12 where 1D barcode can’t be read by a Barcode Scanner instance when the default “speed” template is used by changing the default localization mode from “LM_CONNECTED_BLOCKS” to “LM_SCAN_DIRECTLY”. “LM_CONNECTED_BLOCKS” is the mode with the bug.

7.3 (01/14/2020)

NEW

  • Added a new barcode type Postal codes including USPS Intelligent Mail, Postnet, Planet, Australia Post barcode, RM4SCC. Added a new localization mode LM_STATISTICS_POSTAL_CODE in the struct PublicRuntimeSettings -> LocalizationModes to recognize Postal codes.
  • Implemented the feature of recognizing distorted QR barcode. It can be enabled by turning on the struct PublicRuntimeSettings -> FurtherModes -> DeformationResistingModes.
  • Implemented the feature of complementing missing parts of QR Code & DataMatrix barcodes. It can be enabled by turning on the struct PublicRuntimeSettings -> FurtherModes -> BarcodeComplementModes.
  • Added a new setting ScaleUpModes to set the scale-up mode for linear barcodes with small module size. It can be enabled by turning on the struct PublicRuntimeSettings -> ScaleUpModes.
  • Added a new API Dynamsoft.BarcodeReader.detectEnvironment() that returns information like the OS type, browser type, WASM support, camera support, etc.
  • Added an instance property singleFrameMode, which when enabled, allows the user to open a UI to snap a single frame from the camera instead of showing its video stream in the browser for barcode reading.
  • Added two new APIs pauseScan() and resumeScan() to better handle the scanning process while showing the video stream.
  • Built-in several customizable UI elements and instruction sounds so that users can easily distinguish the following
  • Whether the BarcodeScanner instance is scanning
  • Which region the BarcodeScanner instance is scanning
  • Where the found barcode symbols are

IMPROVED

  • Improved the decoding accuracy for DataMatrix that has a narrow quiet zone.
  • Improved the decoding accuracy for 1D barcode that has a small module size.
  • Improved the logic for camera selecting so that a better camera may be selected by default in the case of having multiple cameras available.
  • Improved the method updateRuntimeSettings so that it accepts three default profiles namely “speed”, “coverage” & “balance” thus making it easier to use. Note that “speed” is the default profile for each BarcodeScanner instance and “coverage” for each BarcodeReader instance.

7.2.2 (11/27/2019) · How to upgrade to this version?

NEW

  • Added frame filtering feature so that out-of-focus frames are discarded during the scanning operation.

IMPROVED

  • Updated algorithm to 7.2.2.
  • Improved the accuracy for OneD barcode decoding.
  • Two WASMs are provided for deployment
    1. Compact WASM: Default. Smaller but only supports OneD, PDF417, QR and DataMatrix codes.
    2. Full WASM: Bigger but has all features.

7.1 (08/29/2019)

IMPROVED

  • Updated algorithm to 7.1.
  • Improved the speed to download, build and initialize the library
  • Improved the readability of barcode result text by using UTF-8 encoding
  • Improved developer’s guide to be clearer and more precise
  • Renamed setScanSettings for updateScanSettings for naming consistence.

7.0 (08/09/2019)

NEW

  • Added the capability to enable/disable the torch/flashlight of a mobile device (when available, only Chrome on Android).
  • Added APIs for finer video control. These APIs are getAllCameras, getCurrentCamera, setCurrentCamera, getResolution, setResolution.

IMPROVED

  • Updated algorithm to 7.0.
  • Updated default runtimeSettings for BarcodeScanner.
  • Improved 1D barcode decoding accuracy by comparing results from multiple frames.

6.5.2 (06/12/2019)

NEW

  • Added compatibility for CSP (Content Security Policy).
  • Added samples for Vue, React and Angular.

IMPROVED

  • Optimized workflow for QRCode/DataMatrix/Aztec code recognition. A QRCode/DataMatrix/Aztec barcode zone will be submitted to the deblurring process when its decoding results vary with different binarization arguments.
  • Reduced the error rate of 1D barcode recognition, resulting in a higher chance to successfully confirm a 1D barcode result whose confidence is not extremely high.
  • Reduced the possibility of conflicts with neighbour barcodes, improving the precision of the zone to be deleted when a barcode is recognized successfully.
  • Super large-size (4096x4096 pixels) images can be processed and decoded. The license key can be written in the script label.

FIXED

  • Enhanced the robustness of the image processing algorithm. This resolved segmentation faults when a 0-size image is passed to our SDK or when there are a few small barcode zones which require spatial transformation.
  • Small fixes and tweaks.

NEW

  • Added d.ts file to support typescript.
  • Added the UMS/ESM export for Node.js.

  • Improved deblur algorithm for OneD, enhancing the recognition rate for blurry/out-of-focus barcodes.
  • Improved the accuracy of border location and symbol segmentation for AZTEC.
  • Optimized line scanning algorithm for OneD, decreasing the computation load for character recognition.

  • Decreased error recognition rate for Aztec Codes.

FIXED

  • Improved the decoding performance for Aztec, increasing the recognition rate.
  • Improved the decoding performance for OneD, decreasing the error recognition rate.
  • Added further check points for Timeouts, enhancing the timeout control on large scale images for decoding.

FIXED

  • Small fixes and tweaks.

6.3 (08/16/2018)

NEW

  • New JavaScript Preview Edition - a JavaScript API for barcode scanning based on the WebAssembly technology - is now available.

5.2 (09/18/2017)
