The new version of Aspose.BarCode for Java 8.2.0 has been released. This release supports generating and reading Aztec barcode type. It also supports checksum validation for OneCode and AustraliaPost coded barcodes. Support to apply Metered key has also been incorporated in this release. Aspose.Barcode for Java allows users to generate Aztec barcode. Users can set BarCodeBuilder.SymbologyType to Aztec to generate Aztec barcode. A property setAztecSymbolMode has been introduced to allow only numbers from 0 to 255 while using Aztec barcode. When setAztecSymbolMode property is set, reader automatically detects Runes. Aspose.Barcode for Java now supports checksum validation for OneCode and AustraliaPost barcodes. Property setChecksumValidation has been introduced to perform validation on OneCode and AustraliaPost barcodes. Following is the sample code demonstrating how setChecksumValidation can be set to off and on to perform validation. Aspose.Barcode for Java has introduced a new class Metered to apply metered key. There are some important enhancements part of this release, such as Process of reading Postnet barcode has been improved, reading DataMatix barcode, Processing of Dutch KIX barcodes, Functionality to process the Aztec barcode with long code text, Functionality to read barcode from a PDF file, Functionality to read EAN13 barcode along with supplement code text and Process of generating AustraliaPost barcode has been greatly improved. Below is the list of main improved features and bug fixes added in this release.
