Barcode SDK

Now using the barcode kernel TBarCode V11.6.0

  • Improved Data Matrix Rectangular Extensions (DRME):
    Added support for new Data Matrix rectangular sizes according to ISO/IEC AWI 21471 (8x80, 8x96, 8x120, 8x144, 12x88, 20x36, 20x44, 20x64, 22x40, 22x48, 26x40, 26x48, 26x64).

Bug Fixes

  • Number Format on Linux/UNIX
    The current locale now determines the number format on Linux/UNIX (TFM-8182).
  • SDK XML Import: Number of Copies
    When importing XML files using the internal XML file format, the number of copies will be recognized correctly again (TFM-8362).
  • FontManager
    Fixed a memory leak in the internal fontmanager.

Known Bug

  • Data Matrix
    On some Linux builds (e.g. RHEL 6, 7) the Data Matrix Base 256 mode encodes wrong data if Byte values >= 0x80 are encoded. This may occur with special characters in the Latin-1 or UTF-8 character set, but also with binary data. The problem does not occur with the standard ASCII character set. See TBC-8526 for more information.
