Release Notes

This page documents notable changes for each release.

The API documentation for the current version (51.6.0) is available here.

[51.6.0] - 2024-05-24

This minor release improves the accuracy of the Tire Identification Number (DOT) Scanner.


  • [Tire] This release improves the overall accuracy of the Tire Identification Number (DOT) Scanner. This is especially targeting tire numbers with wider spaces (e.g. some Yokohama tires) between individual parts.

[51.5.0] - 2024-04-22

This minor release improves the reliability and accuracy of the advanced barcode reader and adds customizable attributes for the UI Feedback preset for TIN scanning, as well as security enhancements to file integrity.


  • [Barcode] This release improves the reliability of scanning torn or broken barcodes with the advanced barcode reader.

  • [Barcode] Occasionally devices with less capable cameras struggled with dense barcodes. We have improved the accuracy on those cameras.

  • [Breaking] The UI Feedback preset tin_custom_v1 has been replaced by tin_with_instruction_overlay_image_text_sound_feedback, which includes additional attributes. If you are currently using the tin_custom_v1 preset, please make sure you follow its correct usage.


  • [Barcode] Sometimes coordinates reported by the advanced barcode reader were inaccurate. The SDK now reports barcode coordinates more reliably.


  • To improve the integrity of checksums implemented internally within the SDK, usage of MD5 hash algorithms has been replaced with SHA-512. This change does not have any visible impact to customers or integrators, however represents an increase in security of the SDK overall.

[51.4.1] - 2024-04-08

This patch release lifts a restriction on using the UI Feedback feature.


  • Resolved an issue that prevented UI Feedback elements from being positioned correctly when binding the ScanView lifecycle to the CameraController lifecycle.

[51.4.0] - 2024-03-20

This minor release resolves an issue with terminating the scanning process and adds functionality for our cross-platform solutions.


  • Resolved an issue that caused a crash when terminating the Anyline scanning process.


  • Functionality has been added that allows Anyline’s cross-platform solutions to attach plugin-related information to the data reported. This functionality has no impact on the usage of the Mobile SDKs on native platforms.

  • New default images are available to be used with the "tin_custom_v1" UI Feedback functionality.


  • Prior to this release, the Tire Identification Number (TIN) scanner couldn’t scan TINs without a valid production date by default due to an internal validation check. We have changed the default behavior, allowing users to scan TINs without a valid production date.

    • If you want to verify the production date during scanning, activate this feature via pluginConfig→tinConfig→validateProductionDate.

[51.3.1] - 2024-02-20

This minor release allows users to scan a wider range of commercial tire IDs and improves accuracy on commercial tire ID scans.


  • Prior to this release, the Commercial Tire ID scanner couldn’t scan some tire IDs because our default validation regex was too strict. We made the regex less strict, so now users can scan a wider range of commercial tire IDs. Users will also notice an improved accuracy on all commercial tire IDs.

[51.2.4] - 2024-02-08

This patch release lifts a restriction on scanning with specialized devices and resolves an issue related to composite scanning.


  • Prior to this release, some specialized devices (e.g. Payment Terminals) using the front camera were unable to scan with the correct orientation. This restriction has now been lifted.

  • Resolved an issue that caused an unresponsive scanning experience in very specific situations, particularly related to composite scanning. This bug was exclusive to the previous version and has been successfully addressed.

[51.2.3] - 2024-01-25


  • Improvements to resolve possible memory leaks on Android 14 devices.

[51.2.2] - 2024-01-11

This minor release fixes a bug related to the cutout and enables the UIFeedback Config feature to be used with presets.


  • Added new UIFeedback Config feature and TIN preset to be used together with the TIN/DOT plugin. For more information see UIFeedback config.


  • To ensure uninterrupted access to the Mobile SDK for Android dependency, please update the SDK URL in your build.gradle files. Specifically, you need to replace the existing Maven repository URL:

maven { url '' }

with the new URL:

maven { url '' }


  • Fixed a bug where the cutout was not drawn during the first use of the scanner.

[51.2.0] - 2023-11-27

This minor release allows you to scan UK driver’s licenses that have been issued post-Brexit. Additionally contained are breaking changes due to a restructuring of the package name (Android only), which you would only need to care about if you were using any of the renamed classes.


  • Added new United Kingdom driver’s license (layout 11002) to the Universal ID scanner. This allows you to scan UK driver’s licenses that have been issued post-Brexit.


  • [Breaking] On Android, we’ve made changes to the package structure by moving several classes from the old io.anyline package to the new io.anyline2 package. This includes:

Breaking Changes

This release introduces fundamental changes & improvements to how the Anyline SDK works. To upgrade from a prior SDK version to version 51.6.0, check out the migration guide.

Document Scanner Support Dropped

As of Anyline v43, the Document Scanner plugin has been removed and the feature will no longer be supported.


  • Added PluginResult for describing result data

    • Added a type of plugin result for each scanning capability

  • [Tire] Added tire size specification fields to the result

  • [Barcode] Added AAMVA parsing for PDF417 codes on driving licenses

  • [ID] Restructured ID results in a way that every field can contain date- & multi-language information


  • Changed the SDK architecture from one using inheritance & generics to a composition-based approach

    • Instead of distinctive subclasses such as MeterScanViewPlugin, IDScanViewPlugin, etc. the SDK offers an ScanViewPlugin class regardless of the scanning use case

  • Changed the structure of how scanning use-cases are constructed through JSON

  • Introduced configuration types for every scanning use-case with a corresponding result type


  • Because of the fundamental nature of changes, there are no deprecations to list for this version.
