What is new in this release?

Aspose development team is happy to announce the monthly release of Aspose.Words for Java &.NET 16.1.0 . This month’s release contains over 139 useful new features, enhancements and bug fixes to the Aspose.Words products. This month’s release contains over 139 useful new features, enhancements and bug fixes to the Aspose.Words products. Here is a look at just a few of the biggest features and API changes in this month’s release, Support of Ancient Legacy Binary DOC files, support of Configuration of Document Hyphenation Options, support of Controlling Global Mail Merge Events, support of Getting Mail Merge Regions Hierarchy, support of Working without Static Font Cache and Use Per-document Font Settings, introduced Public Fields API v2.0 – Building Arbitrary Field Using FieldBuilder, introduced Shape.SignatureLine Property, introduced FormField.RemoveField Method, introduced DocumentBuilder.InsertSignatureLine Method and Improved Font Substitution Warnings. We have added support for older biWnary DOC format for Word6.0/Word95 documents import. We have renamed Public enumeration LoadFormat.DocPreWord97 to DocPreWord60 to avoid confusion. We introduced new HyphenationOptions class in Aspose.Words. HyphenationOptions instance is available as a read only property on the Document class and contains the following properties to configure document hyphenation options. We have added the IMailMergeCallback interface to receive notifications while mail merge is performed and MailMerge.MailMergeCallback property to handle particular events during mail merge. This allows to respond to different global mail merge events. Currently it supports a single event, TagsReplaced, which is fired when mustache fields are replaced with merge fields but not yet merged. We have added the MailMergeRegionInfo public class and the MailMerge.GetRegionsHierachy public method. These allow to obtain mail merge hierarchy including child regions and fields. We have made all methods of FontSettings class as instance methods. Static methods are replaced with static DefaultInstance property. We have now provided typed access to all Microsoft Word fields, it is a good time to allow users build an arbitrary field code. We can insert a complete field code via DocumentBuilder, or we can insert a field of a certain type and access its code using the typed properties of a FieldXXX class. We have now added a new public property to HtmlSaveOptions class to specify whether page margins is exported to HTML, MHTML or EPUB. Now Aspose.Words could save metafiles directly without using GDI+. For now only saving to EmfPlusOnly format is supported. We have now added a new public property to HtmlFixedSaveOptions class to get/set indication of whether form fields are exported as interactive items (as ‘input’ tag) rather than converted to text or graphics. We have added a capability to preserve mustache tags that haven’t been populated. We have added two methods to DocumentBuilder class to insert signature lines. We have now added Shape.SignatureLine property to get SignatureLine object if the shape is a signature line. Note! Now it is not possible to sign a signature line by digital signature in Aspose.Words. We have added a capability to remove the whole form field right from the FormField object.
