We are pleased to announce the new release of Aspose.Diagram for Java 5.6.0 . We’re incorporating small and gradual changes to have a positive usability impact. To lead the goal, we’ve added a new feature in this release. It allows developers to change the milestone of the project on its timeline shape programmatically. We’ve also added optimization, bug fixes and many other enhancements to existing APIs. It is a common phenomenon in the system development life cycle to list out project milestones and then create a visual mapping of them in a timeline diagram. Aspose.Diagram APIs allow to configure Visio Timeline shapes. From this release version, users will also be able to update a particular Milestone shape’s date. MilestoneHelper class allows to do so. Please refer to the documentation help topic, Refresh Milestones on the Timeline using MilestoneHelper class. Some important bug fixes included in this release includes, VDX to PNG conversion, incorrect fonts in the output PNG file, Can’t determine connected shapes in the VSD diagram, VSDX to SVG conversion, the shape’s text lines are interchanged & many more.This release includes several enhanced features and bug fixes as listed below
