What is new in this release?

The long awaited version of Aspose.Cells for Java 18.10 has been released. This release contains several important new feature, enhancements and bug fixes. Aspose team put effort to greater extent to make our product easy to use and error free by working hard on all the issues which are reported by the vast developer’s community. Depiction of data through HTML page is very common, however this page can be opened in variety of devices including mobiles, tabs and other hand held devices which contain small screens. The size of the columns is defined in “pt” which works in many cases. However there can be case where this fixed size may not be required. For example if container panel width is 600px where this HTML page is being displayed. In this case you may get horizontal scrollbar if the generated table width is bigger. This requirement is addressed by providing scalable units like em or percent for a better presentation. Empty tags are very common while working with HTML like we can face <td></td> or simply <td/>. Earlier self-closing tags were not supported however now this support is provided. Now you can load any HTML with self-closing tags and convert it to Excel file. Named regions can have English formulae and this file can be used in environments where  systems are configured to German Locale. There is need to translate these English formulae completely to German language for correct usage in Excel configured for German language. This feature is fully functional and can be used without any extra coding. Excel provides custom filters like filter rows which begins with and ends with some specific string. This feature is available in Aspose.Cells and demonstrated by providing working examples.  Aspose.Cells provides rich features to manage shapes in the spreadsheet. Sometimes there is need to get the connection points of a shape for aligning or placing the shapes at appropriate place. For this purpose all the connection points are required. Following code can be used to get the list of connection points of a shape where Shape.GetConnectionPoints() function is used. There are some other enhancements and exceptions handled in this new release, such as Convert left right ribbon shape to image, An exception(StackOverFlow) raises when saving to PDF output, Copy a range with PasteType.ALL (Paste options) not copying row heights properly, Invalid Russian date format output, Exception “java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space” when rendering MS Excel file to PDF, Quotes appear in formula when retrieving the cell formula via Aspose.Cells and Performance degradation when using conditional formatting. Below are some important new features, enhancement and bug fixes part of this release.
