We are pleased to announce the new release of Aspose.Diagram for Java 5.8.0 . The support of exporting Visio diagrams to Microsoft Visio 2013 VSDX format has been added in this version. Developers can also create diagrams from scratch or modify the existing VSDX diagrams. Aspose.Diagram API now supports grouping a set of shapes and also save diagram into HTML without the toolbar. This release also includes the most recent bug fixes and enhanced retrieval of the diagram properties, layers visibility and auto shape positioning. In previous, we added support of reading VSDX diagram. Developers were able to read and extract the content of the diagram, but they were not able to save it in the VSDX format as well. From this version, they would also be able to write diagram in the VSDX format. Aspose.Diagram API has added support of grouping shapes together. The groups are a great way to organize shapes in a Visio drawing. The documentation help topic shows, how developers can group shapes together. In some use cases, our client’s requirement was not to include toolbars in the resultant HTML document. In reference of this required feature, we have added the SaveToolBar property to the HTMLSaveOptions class. It specifies whether to include the toolbar or not. Following help topic shows, how developers can save diagram into the HTML format using SaveToolBar option. This release includes several enhanced features and bug fixes as listed below
- Writing support for new MS Visio 2013 VSDX format.
- Incorrect Visio page properties

- VSDX to SVG conversion, "&" character in the text appear as "&"
