There are no major changes regarding Bytescout BarCode Generator since its last reviewed version. Bytescout BarCode Generator now allows selecting encoding types, which means that you can now use UTF-8 to encode Unicode symbols into 2D barcodes like QR Code, Aztec and others. GTIN-8, GTIN-13, GTIN-14 barcode types were also added. Other than these, there are no other important modifications. Bytescout BarCode Generator is the same powerful tool that offers a lot of useful features while still being completely free.

Other impressive features of Bytescout BarCode Generator, worth mentioning for its latest version as well, are the support for exporting the generated barcodes to common image file formats such as PNG, BMP, GIF or JPEG, and the very easy-to-use and intuitive interface. The many barcode customization possibilities (sizes, margins, colors, etc.) are also remarkable. Cutting long story short, Bytescout BarCode Generator is a great choice for any barcode creation needs.
