What is new in this release?

We are pleased to announce the new release of Aspose.Diagram for Java 6.0.0 . For developers, the newly added methods give programmatic access to detect the glued or connected nature of the two Visio shapes. The shadow effect adds a visual impact to the Visio shape. Microsoft Office Visio allows users to glue or connect Visio shapes while creating a diagram. Developers can do the same programmatically using Aspose.Diagram API. In addition to that they can now detect connection nature like two shapes are glued or connected. To accomplish this task, it offers isGlued and isConnected methods in the Shape class. Both these methods take a destination shape object as a parameter and return resultant true or false. Using Aspose.Diagram API, users convert Visio diagrams to other supported formats. It also now transforms shadow effects of the shapes. Since users can now apply shadows to the shapes that help make the diagrams look more modern and attractive. A VSSX file is a Visio stencil file. It saves a collection of shapes, connectors, or other objects that can be used within a drawing. Using Aspose.Diagram API, developers load VSSX stencil and then place shapes in their technical drawings. The loading part of the VSSX stencil file has been improved. Developers can now load even their complex Visio stencils. This release includes some important fixes and enhancements, such as VSD to VDX conversion, curve dynamic connectors turn into stright, Geometry of the connector shapes is incorrect, VSDX to EMF conversion, VSDX to TIFF conversion, VSD to VDX, Copying a Visio diagram page operation does not preserve style of the shapes and many more. This release includes several enhanced features and bug fixes as listed below

Newly added documentation pages and articles

Some new tips and articles have now been added into Aspose.Diagram for Java documentation that may guide you briefly how to use Aspose.Diagram for performing different tasks like the followings.

- Verify Whether Two Visio Shapes are Connected or Glued
- Convert a Visio Shape to Other File Formats

Overview: Aspose.Diagram for Java

Aspose.Diagram is a class library for working with MS Visio files & is a pure Java alternate for MS Visio Object Model. It is a standalone Visio Java library and does not depend on Microsoft Office Visio. It enables developers to work with VSD & VDX files and they can open files & Add & manipulate the elements of the diagram, export Visio files to PDF, XML, HTML, images format, SVG & several other formats, Rotate a shape, Add a hyperlink to a Visio shape, protect diagram shape and many more. Aspose.Diagram can be used with any kind of application, whether it’s a Web Application or a Windows Desktop Application.
