What is new in this release?

We are pleased to announce the release of Aspose.Tasks for Java 8.70 . It includes the same new features, enhancements and bug fixes as were part of its equivalent .NET version. This month’s release provides the capability to retrieve Project data from Microsoft Project Database. The MspDbSettings and SqlConnectionStringBuilder classes can be used to accomplish this purpose. Microsoft Project 2016 preview version has already been released. We are pleased to share that Apose.Tasks API supports this new version MPP format as it is based on the 2013 file format. Aspose.Tasks API now supports performing risk analysis on a Project data file. Based on the Monte Carlo simulation, that supports different probability distributions and correlations, the functionality has been provided via the RiskAnalyzer class. The whole process consists of the steps like, Preparing Analysis Settings, Identifying the Input of Analysis, Analyzing the Risks and Using the Results of the Analysis. We have also fixed a number of bugs, resulting in further improvement in API functionality. These include exceptions while saving project with Gantt Chart View, rendering project data to PDF and loading certain MPX files. Below is the complete list of bug fixes and enhanced features included in this release.

- Implement Project data reading from MS Project DB
- Add support for MS Project v2016 file format
- Implement risk analysis tool
- Null reference exception raised while saving the project while using GanttChartView
