0.10: December 11, 2020

New features and enhancements:

  • Face recognition template generation speed improvements on x86 CPU (both LITE and FULL model template generation nearly twice as fast). The RAM usage has also increased, the FULL model now using 2Gb RAM (previously 1.1Gb), and the LITE model using 55Mb RAM (previously 35Mb).


  • SDK now supports CPUs which have AVX instruction set and don’t have AVX2 instruction set (previously our SDK required AVX2 CPUs). SDK uses runtime dispatching and will run significantly faster on CPUs supporting AVX2.

  • faceprintToJson no longer adds newline to json elements.

0.9: November 20, 2020

New features and enhancements:

  • Python3.7 bindings for AArch64 and Arm32 SDK (previously only python3.6).

  • Added setImage overload which accepts buffer to encoded JPG, PNG, or TIFF image


  • Changed scripts for downloading runtime model files. They are now located in the download_models directory.


  • Fixed bug with GPU face detector where smallestFaceHeight parameter was not being used.

  • Bug in spoof code which was producing incorrect results. Spoof function prototype has also been changed, must provided the FaceBoxAndLandmarks of the face to be analyzed.


  • Function prototype changed for isLicensed function. Now returns how many days are remaining for the license token.

0.8: November 9, 2020

New features and enhancements:

  • All Python classes have a __repr__ method.

  • Python bindings for AArch64 and Arm32 SDK.

  • Log number of days remaining for license.

  • Can use images residing in CUDA memory for face detection and recognition.

  • Added PostgreSQL DatabaseManagementSystem support.

  • Added faceprintToJson and jsonToFaceprint functions for deserializing / serializing Faceprint objects as strings.

  • Improved sample apps.

  • Environment variable for setting log level.

  • Improved documentation.


  • Version number can be obtained from python bindings using tfsdk.SDK.get_version()

0.7: August 14, 2020

New features and enhancements:

  • Added detectGlasses API for detecting eye glasses

  • Added detectMask API function for detecting face masks

  • Added glasses detection sample codes (C++ and python).

  • Added mask detection sample apps (C++ and python).

  • Spoof model improvements.

  • Reduce SDK size.

  • No longer need to register all the GPUs in a machine in order to use one GPU with the SDK.


  • Changed TRUEFACE_LICENSE to TRUEFACE_TOKEN in python bindings sample apps.

  • Spoof score has been inverted, 1 indicates real, 0 indicates fake.

  • detectMask now takes 1 additional parameter, maskScore.

0.6: July 7, 2020

New features and enhancements:

  • Face mask detection (currently on the CUDA engine only).

  • Setting smallestFaceHeight to -1 adjusts the face detection scale range from image-height/32 to image-height.

  • Read license token from environment variable in python sample apps.

Method signature changes:

  • Renamed createCollection to createLoadCollection.
