Other recent updates to Dynamsoft's Barcode Reader SDK include offering the SDK as an independent product. It previously only worked as an add-on to other Dynamsoft image capture SDKs. In addition support for reading many other barcode types was recently added: code39,code128, code93, Codabar, ITF, EAN13, EAN8, UPCA, UPCE, and more.
