In this release we have added support for barcode scanning using Data Intents on Honeywell mobile computers and added a new Extended HID mode for better scanning thru the keyboard interface where Data Intents is not supported. In the 5250 emulation we have made it possible to use the Mac address of the device in TN5250 device names and to configure FldExit as Action after Scan. Support for external keyboard has been improved and you can use double tap to enable/disable the touch screen. Line mode has been added to the VT emulation. There are also other minor corrections and improvements in this version.
The upgrade is free for customers who purchased earlier versions of the Glink for Android products with support.
