The Softek Barcode Reader Toolkit for Windows is a set of dll files that can be used by applications to extract barcode values from image files and bitmaps held in memory. The toolkit uses no configuration files or registry settings and requires minimal installation on a production system. Some of the interfaces only require installation of a single dll file. Licenses are required for both development and run-time use of the toolkit – please refer to the section on licensing for more details. The install set includes dll files for all interfaces to the toolkit, sample images and sample projects. Please note that the COM and OCX interfaces both require registration of a dll file – see the section on Installation for more details The usual way to use the toolkit is to set a few properties, such as which types of barcode to read, and then call the ScanBarCode method to process the image. Note that by default the toolkit will exit when the first barcode is detected but it can be configured (see MultipleRead) to scan the entire document for barcodes, building up a list of detected values. The ScanBarCode method returns the number of detected barcodes and the value of each barcode can then be retrieved using the GetBarString method.

New Relic Releases Error Tracking Capabilities to Improve Customer Experience

New Relic | January 11, 2023

New Relic, an observability platform for engineers, announced the general availability of new error tracking capabilities to help engineering teams proactively detect, triage, and take action on all errors across the full software stack before customers are impacted. Engineers can use New Relic error tracking to group errors by user and error impact and show them in the right context. These capabilities include a new user impact view, access to correlation data across traces and logs, and an enhanced integration with Slack. It will reduce engineering work and improve the customer experience. New Relic empowers engineers with a data-driven approach to planning, building, deploying, and running great software. This helps the world's leading brands improve planning cycle times, change failure rates, release frequency, and mean time to resolution. It also provides a single location to view, triage, and resolve all errors across the entire application stack, as well as the ability for engineers to intelligently group and display errors on a single screen by user and error impact, with context. New Relic helps engineering teams find all errors across the full application stack, including APM, RUM, mobile, and serverless data. This reduces engineering work and makes the customer experience better. New Relic Observability Product GM and Chief Growth Officer, Manav Khurana, commented, "As applications grow more complex, engineers need a system in place to proactively triage and fix errors before the customer experience is impacted. New Relic error tracking gives web, mobile, and back-end engineers a single place to prioritize and resolve issues quicker whenever a critical, customer-impacting error arises. Because error tracking is part of our all-in-one observability platform, we are able to automatically reveal relevant traces and logs in the context of an error, helping engineers debug errors faster."
