What is new in this release?

Aspose development team is happy to announce the monthly release of Aspose.Words for Java &.NET 14.2.0 as well as Aspose.Words for Android 1.7.0. Aspose.Words 14.1.0 includes over 100 useful new features, enhancements and bug fixes. This new release now supports automatic styles update. When the document (with this option set) is opened, changes to the styles in the attached template will automatically appear in this document. In Microsoft Word, this option is called Automatically update document styles and can be set through Templates and Add-ins dialogue as you can see given image. Set the Document.AutomaticallyUpdateStyles option to true to let the styles update when document is opened in Microsoft Word. Aspose.Words now supports hyphenation.
