Release Notes: This month’s release provides a brand new save format, and you can now export any document loaded into Aspose.Words to the SVG vector image format. In previous versions, during rendering, if a required font was not found on the machine or embedded in the document, in most cases Aspose.Words would fall back on the free “Gentium” font. Starting with this release, you can specify the default to use during rendering if a font is missing. Users can now pass any TrueType fonts to the Aspose.Words engine in a variety of different ways.
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.
Release Notes: Structured document tags (also known as content controls) are dynamic document elements that can be added to display and insert information in different ways and can be interacted with by the user. Noticeable improvements were made in the field update when working with large documents.
Release Notes: The HTML engine was overhauled with better support for CSS features and improved overall performance. Rendering documents to PDF with PDF/A-1a compliance level is now supported. This compliance encompasses all of the requirements of PDF/A-1b which Aspose.Words already supports and ensures that the document can be searched and repurposed.
Release Notes: This release adds a new option to the PdfSaveOptions class PageMode which controls how the PDF should appear and what internal windows in the PDF document should be initially displayed when opened in the PDF reader. When you create a new Microsoft Word document via the Explorer context menu (right click and choose New Microsoft Word Document), a blank file with no content is created as a placeholder for the document. Aspose.Words will detect and handle these types of files so you can now open such documents directly via the constructor.
Release Notes: Supports for saving to PostScript format was added. When an MS Word document has editing restrictions and is marked to allow no changes, you can now add exceptions and allow specific users to edit certain ranges of a document. Protected ranges are preserved correctly when saving to and from DOC, DOCX, WML, and RTF. Two nodes were added to the document object model, including a façade class that allows easy access to the range of a single entity.
