What’s new in this release?

Aspose team is pleased to announce the release of Aspose.PDF for Java 18.10 . As per regular monthly revision, quite exciting features and enhancements have been included in latest release in order to make API more user friendly and usable while creating and manipulating PDF documents. RichText is now supported in FreeTextAnnotation. Please note that rich text is HTML-like text markup and in order to use this in FreeTextAnnotaiton, users need to use setRichText() method offered by the API. If users need just plain text, then should use Contents Property instead of RictText but, Users may assign plain text to RichText and this would also work. Along with the feature mentioned above, there are some useful improvement which have been made to the latest version of the API, such as support of custom fonts is tested and verified for IBM iSeries, HOCR to PDF conversion has been improved for multithreaded maven scenarios, Text Stamping has further been improved and PDF to PDF/A Conversion engine is further improved. Some important improved features included in this release are given below
