What is new in this release?

The latest version of Aspose.BarCode for .NET6.1.0 has been released. We are pleased to announce that this new release is quite a plus for the WPF application projects because the barcode recognition part has now been added. Previously, there was no way to read the codes in WPF projects. With this release, we have also shipped a separate Aspose.BarCode library for .NET Compact Framework 3.5. One more remarkable progress is about merging recognition and generation modules, now there is a single library for both APIs. Since developers also don?t need to apply license for each module. In this regard, we have removed Aspose.BarCodeRecognition.License class because no need of that. We just need to apply a license once through Aspose.BarCode.License class. We have included a number of bug fixes and improvements. It is mostly based on customer feedbacks, scenarios and earlier experience. With these fixes and improvements, of course recognition and generation techniques also get better than past. In this release, the recognition rate of various symbologies e.g. Code128 from (pdf, jpg, tiff), PDF417 from pdf, GS1Code128 from png, OneCode from JPG, DataMatrix from (png, tif), AustralianPosteParcel from GIF and Code39 from tif can be mature a little more. The partial recognition is downgraded with respect to the PLANET and POSTNET symbologies from jpg. Two fixes were about incorrect recognition so the accuracy of EAN13 and Code128 symbologies from Pdf can increase. We can now generate a DataMatrix code in a small size of JPG format. Based on this, resolution support has automatically added to BarCodeBuilder.GetCustomSizeBarCodeImage(Size, bool) and BarCodeBuilder.GetOnlyBarCodeImage() methods. These methods work as expected with taking resolution into account. Please see a complete example topic: Generate Barcode Using Custom Width Support. Also, the appearance of Interleaved2of5 symbology is now better because no addition lines around the code. Aspose.BarCode binaries support dual signing with SHA1 & SHA2. Below is the list of new and improved features supported in this version.
