        Release Notes: This release enables Java and .NET developers to insert OLE objects such as another Microsoft Word document or a Microsoft Excel chart in a Word document. It also adds a new method for inserting an embedded or linked OLE object from a file into Word documents along with Outline, Shadow, Reflection, Glow, and Fill text effects for rendering text inside DrawingML shapes. Aspose.Words’s rendering engine now partially supports EUDC (End-User-Defined-Characters) fonts and uses a modified Open Office algorithm to set the best fit position of data labels in pie charts.

When a document with this option set is opened, changes to the styles in the attached template will automatically appear in this document.

            Release Notes: This release adds Curved WordArt support (the WordArt shapes fit to frames defined by Bezier curves) and advanced DrawingML effects such as glow, outer shadow, and reflection. When "track changes" is enabled, any insertions, deletions, or changes in the document are identified and displayed to the user. Along with these three standard changes, there is a special type of change tracking which identifies when a portion of content is moved from one place to another in the document. This move is seen as one unique operation in which the content is moved from one position to another.
