Linux SDK Version 7.4.2 released
We are pleased to announce that version 7.4.2 of the Barcode Reader SDK for Linux has now been released. Developers with valid support and upgrade cover (this includes anyone who purchased a license in the last 12 months) will automatically receive a download link to the new version in the next week or so but please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org should you wish to get your link sooner.
1. Improvements to barcode recognition
Improvements have been made to the Code 39, Code 128, GS1-Databar and Datamatrix modules.
2. Code 93 Support
Support for Code 93 barcodes has also been added. Please refer to the manual page for further details.
3. TIF Resolution
If a TIF document uses a resolution of 1 dpi then the value will be ignored and a default value of 200 dpi used instead.
4. PDF-417 decoding
An error has been fixed that could lead to corruption in the output values for some PDF-417 barcodes.
5. Partial reads on PDF-417 barcodes
It was possible for certain PDF-417 barcodes to give partial and incorrect readings. This has been corrected. The maximum length for a PDF-417 barcode has now been increased from 2K to 8K (when represented in quoted printable format).
6. 2-D barcodes at coarse fax resolution
Previous versions of the toolkit were not able to decode 2-D barcodes from coarse resolution faxes because the vertical and horizontal resolutions were different. This has been corrected.
