The new version of Aspose.BarCode for Java 6.5.0 has been released. This new release has added support of OSGi metadata to Aspose.BarCode for Java jars. The OSGi metadata enables jars to be used in the OSGi modular environment and be an OSGi Bundle. It also addresses the recognition performance, time and memory consumption issues, and brings overdue updates to resolve issues reported in the Aspose forums. Aspose.BarCode for Java 6.5.0 has exposed two new methods for the printing of barcode image. In this regard, BarCodeBuilder.setPrinterName method allows to set the output printing source by accepting a string parameter and BarCodeBuilder.print method gives printing command to the printer. We had missed this feature support in the last few releases. It was due to the new modification to the code base. Previously, users were facing issues in the code text alignment and 2D text display feature was not working properly. In this new version, we have managed to fix such issues. Now, the code text caption alignment settings and BarCodeBuilder.Display2DText method work properly. Our development team is working hard to improve the reading capability, scanning performance and accurate detection of the several barcode types. In last few releases, we have added a remarkable progress. Below is the list of main improved features and bug fixes added in this release.
