    Hi all,

    Now that Vuforia 6.5.22 comes built-in with Unity 2017.2.0f3 (via XR settings) I can no longer see some of the prefabs, like TextRecognition...

    I can see GameObjectVuforiaARCamera for example, but where is the TextRecognition?

    Thanks

    Hello drhmiri,

    TextRecognition is deprecated in Vuforia 6.5.22.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    OK, I see... Is there some sort of a replacement?

    Or perhaps just using the legacy Vuforia extension with Unity?

    You can still access the TextRecognition scripts by adding components to game objects in your scene and the APIs for it are still available, but since it is deprecated these will be removed in a future version.

    There is no replacement for TextRecognition.

    Thanks.

    Hi all,

    I was just wondering if there was a way to know, from the Unity Editor, which version of Vuforia was built-in?

    Thanks

    Sorry, I answered my own question: it's written in the "VuforiaConfiguration" asset within the "Vuforia" section.

    Is there anything to do to update the built-in Vuforia (to 6.5.23 for instance now)? Or will the updates just come directly with Unity updates?

    Thanks

    Vuforia updates will come directly with Unity updates going forward.

    Thanks!
