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 includes performance boosts and interesting new features. The amount of memory required to render a document has been reduced by more than 20-30%. Rendering of images to PDF was improved by approximately 25% when saving with JPEG compression. The size of images stored in PDF files generated by Aspose.Words has been reduced in many cases. Duplication of images could sometimes occur in some situations. This has been resolved, which also results in improved file size. Support for digitally signing DOC and DOCX documents was added.
Release Notes: This release includes a new save format, HtmlFixed, which provides the ability to render a document to HTML while preserving almost all formatting and structure found in the original input document. Several fixed paged format display headings and bookmarks were provided in a tree based display for easy access, for example, the navigation panel found with most PDF viewers. The API for working with outline levels has been improved.
Release Notes: This release supports rendering of 3D and shadows effects on Shapes. A shape or image in an MS Word document can have advanced effects applied to it, such as shadow, 3D rotation (extrusion), reflection, more. In previous versions, Aspose.Words would render shapes with such effect to PDF and similar formats as regular shapes without the effects applied. There are big improvements to the area of rendering, and now 3D extrusion and simple shadows on shapes are now supported upon rendering. There are some improvements in the way JPEG images are exported to PDF, which results in some great file size saving benefits.
Release Notes: The Aspose.Words API now provides access to the layout engine. It is now possible to find the page number where a particular node is located, find the coordinates and size of a node as rendered on the page, and split and extract individual pages from a document.
Release Notes: This release supports a revision public API. Revisions (tracked changes) are a feature built into Microsoft Word that stores all modifications made to a document during editing. The new API provides features like Access individual or all revisions in a document, Get/Set individual revision properties, Accept/Reject individual or all revision, Retrieve the type of the revision, and many more. Aspose.Words now provides the functionality to “cancel” a task if requested by the user. For instance, if a large document is deemed to be taking too long to convert, then the process can be interrupted.
