Release Notes
A summary of bug fixes and features per release


    We have removed the mandatory retry policies and have set a default but you can still override the default if you see a need to do so using setRetryOnfailurePolicy.
    when submitting a job the SDK will default to 10 retries, 15 seconds apart.
    Removed useIdCard on the SIDConfig.Builder class so the SDK can handle this automatically.
    The first version which is compatible with Smile ID UI which is a layer we have built to abstract the manual configuration to the SDK and for convenional use this is an easier way to get started very quickly in fewer lines of code.

Version 6.4.2

    Fixed issues with ID capture being closely tied to job submissions where an enroll would fail if ID capture had been invoked on the same tag
    Fixed issues with capturing ID before selfie
    New and improved ID Capture view in a few lines of code please see here for more information on how to implement this.

Version 6.4.2

Fixed issues with Job Type 5 which was resulting in a silent failure due to remaining job configurations from previous versions.
Added the ability to set custom callback using the SDK, this can be done by using the SIDNetData class. After setting the other settings in this class then call the method setCallBackUrl as in the example below
SIDNetData data = new SIDNetData();
....//other SIDNetData settings

Version 6.4.1

The SDK will provide validation by default and will return an error which can be either
For more information on required fields per ID type please refer to
You can turn off this remote validation by using
builder = new SIDConfig.Builder(this)
//this will only validate to make sure there is a country, id type and id
Fixed a crash for a subset of armv7 devices caused by a linking error

Version 6.4.0

    The singleton SIDInfosManager.getInstance() now requires a context when getting the instance

    Fix for conflict issues with other libraries using opencv particularly the library
    Fix for job type 5 user id information when using the .submitAll() method from SIDNetworkRequest class

Version 6.3.0

Bug Fixes

    Fix for correct camera orientation from the CaptureIDCard for Nexus 5 devices
    Supporting multiple orientation for the camera from CaptureIDCard class and will now follow the activity/fragment's orientation with the correct display (however landscape is still greatly advised since it provides a better user experience as well as better resolution for the final image)
    Jobs using submitAll methods from SIDNetwork request will now have unique configurations per job and this is by introduction of the SIDTagmanager class which should be called before a job is submitted an example is on this page


    ID Validation aka Job Type 5 which is a simple validation for ID information can now be performed in the library see this page for more information
