What is new in this release?

We are pleased to announce the new release of Aspose.Diagram for Java 5.2.0 . Based on customer feedback, we’ve tweaked some things around, set the font directory paths for rendering in Visio diagrams, set connector type shape appearance, refresh milestones on the timeline shape and included another print method which takes printer and document name parameters. Besides above new features, we also bring performance, formatting, and quality improvements in exporting Visio diagrams to any other supported formats. Utilizing new or third party fonts in manipulation, export and many other miscellaneous tasks of the Visio diagram is now an easy thing because developers can now specify locations of their own or third party fonts folders by passing an array of the string. The timeline template includes features that let you align milestones and intervals to timeline shapes based on dates. Aspose.Diagram APIs allows to manage it. We have added a new refreshTimeLine method in TimeLineHelper class, it allows developers to rearrange milestones and intervals accordingly to the time period. The connectors are fundamental to many types of Visio diagrams. Aspose.Diagram APIs now supports setting connector types, e.g. Right Angle, Straight Lines and Curved appearances. We have included another print technique which sends print jobs to the printer. It takes printer and document name as parameters, so far clients can tweak the document name in print line. We have fixed a number of issues in this release. The most noteworthy problems are re-scaling of the Shape makes it deformed, Can’t access shape ParaCollection objects and Shape is using single connection point instead of different connection points. This release includes several enhanced features and bug fixes as listed below

- Add support to pass printing job name as another parameter
- Re-scaling of the Shape makes it deformed
- Update EULA html document in Non-MSI packages
- Can't access shape ParaCollection objects
- Add support to set fonts folder path
- Shape is using single connection point instead of different connection points
