The major development in this release is the functionality to get the minimun size (height & width) required for the barcode image. Improved functionality of GetOnlyBarCodeImage method has also been incorporated in this release.

How a developer can get the minimum size (height & width) is very simple and is demonstrated in the code snippet given below. The code snippet contains comments that makes it self explanatory.

// Create an instance of BarCodeBuilder class
// Set barcode text
// Set encoding type
using (Aspose.BarCode.BarCodeBuilder builder = new Aspose.BarCode.BarCodeBuilder("1234567890", Aspose.BarCode.Generation.EncodeTypes.Code128))
    // Set graphic unit
    builder.GraphicsUnit = System.Drawing.GraphicsUnit.Pixel;

    // Call GetMinimumBarCodeSize method to get the minimum size required
    System.Drawing.SizeF minSize = builder.GetMinimumBarCodeSize();

    // Set Auto size to false
    builder.AutoSize = false;

    // Set image height & width with the help of min size got from GetMinimumBarCodeSize method
    builder.ImageWidth = minSize.Width;
    builder.ImageHeight = minSize.Height;

    // Save the barcode image
    using (System.Drawing.Bitmap image = builder.BarCodeImage)
