Authenticity

  • Improved the algorithm of checking image patterns. Implemented a dynamic adaptive luminescence threshold for checking specific elements.
  • Improved the algorithm of checking false luminescence which provided more precise positioning of the template, support of transparent windows, support of color stripes.
  • Fixed the issue with UV Dull Paper check on unknown documents.
  • Fixed the issue with using glare presence information when performing authenticity checks.

Other

  • Fixed the issue with portrait detection on unknown documents when a ghost photo was selected instead of the main one.
  • Fixed the issue with handling images with negative height in header.
  • Fixed the issue with handling some cases of PDF parsing that led to errors.
  • Moved most of static text from code to resource files.
  • Code quality improved with lots of small issues fixed.
  • Documentation updated.

Core RFID SDK

  • Added support for obtaining a master list for Passive Authentication from TCC (as per BSI TR-03129) by setting the tccParams.serviceUrlPA parameter.
  • Added support for working with TCC on mobile OS (Android & iOS).
  • Added the possibility to pass certificates not only by URL, but explicitly in the RFID_Command_Set_TCC_Params parameters in tccParams.pfxCert.
  • Updated the parameter name for setting the TCC Terminal Authentication URL to tccParams. serviceUrlTA.
  • Fixed the issue with calculating SharedSecret for DH-scheme in PACE that led to failing PACE in some cases.

Desktop web service

  • Linux:
    • Fixed the issue with the RFIDManualDetection property not working.
    • Fixed the issue with Passive Authentication status calculation when some of the notifications were ignored.

Hardware support

  • Added parametrization support for 3M/Gemalto/Thales readers via the JSON settings file. Details on request.
  • Added the capability to determine how a device is powered (external/USB) for 3M/Gemalto/Thales readers and return this in the DeviceFeatures property.
  • Fixed the issue with the camera view area when applying calibration parameters for some Regula readers.

Mobile API

  • Changed the default hologram guidance animation. The animation shows different images for ID and Passport documents and is selected automatically based on the scanned document type.
  • Fixed getting DocumentReaderGraphicField based on eRPRM_ResultType for the Manual Crop functionality when a user turned on returnUncroppedImage in process params.
  • iOS
    • Added the -[setTCCParams:completion:] method to the DocReader instance. The method call sets the given TCCParams to the RFID session. These parameters are required to be set before starting an RFID session.
    • Added the TCCParams configuration model. It contains TCC service-related parameters for the RFID session configuration.
    • Added customization for hologram guidance animation. You can set your custom UIImage to animate instead of the default one with the hologramAnimationImage property. This property can be set during the scanning process to tailor the user experience for different types of documents.
    • Added customization for hologram guidance animation to control vertical position with the hologramAnimationPositionMultiplier property.
    • Added customization for hologram guidance animation to control c_ontentMode_ for the image with the hologramAnimationImageContentMode property.
    • Added the RGLImageQualityCheckTypeHandwritten case for the RGLImageQualityCheckType enumeration.
    • Added the expectedPass property of the type NSArray for the RGLImageQA object. This option controls the quality checks that the image should pass to be considered a valid input during the scanning process.
    • Added NS_SWIFT_NAME for RGLImageQA. Now the Swift compiler will suggest renaming RGLImageQA to ImageQA.
    • Changed RGLImageQualityCheckType to be NS_TYPED_ENUM instead of NS_ENUM. This allows the usage of NSArray of RGLImageQualityCheckType instead of NSNumber wrapped around enumeration values. If you ever compared two values of RGLImageQualityCheckType with the == operator, please make sure to update your code to use the -[isEqualTo:] method instead.
    • Changed the prefix from RGLE to RGL for the RGLImageQualityCheckType cases. For example, RGLEImageQualityCheckTypeImageGlares became RGLImageQualityCheckTypeImageGlares. The same rule applies to all cases from the RGLImageQualityCheckType enumeration. This change makes the usage of the enumeration values in Swift more natural. For example, RGLEImageQualityCheckTypeImageGlares turns into ImageQualityCheckType.imageGlares.
    • Fixed completion with Error where instead of NSError the compilation call could have NSString.
    • Fixed the layout issue with the customization.resultStatus label going outside of the screen bounds if the text is too long.
    • Fixed multiple crop results when a crop button was pressed multiple times on a photo edit screen.
  • Android
    • Added the setTCCParams method to the DocumentReader instance. This method call sets the given TCCParams to the RFID session. The parameters are required to be set before starting the RFID session.
    • Added the TCCParams model. It contains TCC service-related parameters for the RFID session configuration.
    • Added customization for the hologram guidance animation. You can set your custom Drawable to animate instead of the default one with the hologramAnimationImage property. This property can be set during the scanning process to tailor the user experience for different types of documents.
    • Added customization for the hologram guidance animation to control vertical position with the сustomHologramPositionMultiplier property.
    • Added customization for the hologram guidance animation to control ImageView.ScaleType for the image with the hologramAnimationImageScaleType property and Matrix for the image with the hologramAnimationImageMatrix property.
    • Added the IQC_HANDWRITTEN case for the eImageQualityCheckType enumeration.
    • Added the expectedPass property for the ImageQA object. This option controls the quality checks that the image should pass to be considered a valid input during the scanning process.
    • Migrated to support Android X.

Document Reader Application

  • Added the ShowResultLED parameter in the Options dialog on the Results tab.

COM API

  • Added the HealthCheck method for obtaining the current device status in JSON. Now returns the optical and RFID readers readiness status. Can be extended in the future.

Web Service API

  • Demo site
    • Added the Barcode section display to the Response tab if the barcode result is present.
    • Added a display of the field language in the field type in the results table.
