Today we’ve released the latest version of Barcode Basics, our increasingly popular Mac barcode creator, bringing it’s version up to 2.2.
The latest version improves the resolution of bitmapped barcodes (e.g. gif, png etc). These are now produced at 400dpi. This is as a response to user feedback. We’d point out that Barcode Basics can output barcodes as vector independent EPS format though, which is a much better choice if you’re concerned about print quality.
The update also removes support for Mac OS X 10.7. There were some rare issues with running Barcode Basics on Mac OS 10.7 which we never quite got to the bottom of. Since well over half of Mac users are on Mavericks now, with most of the rest on 10.8 it seemed like a sensible move.
We’ve also updated the support link from the app to take users to the new support page here at ghostotter.com.
