What is new in this release?

The long awaited version of Aspose.Cells for Java 17.11.0 has been released. This release includes many new features and enhancements along with some critical bug fixes that further improve the overall stability of the APIs. Aspose.Cells allows users to find the root element name of XML map using XmlMap.RootElementName property. Users can query cell areas mapped to xml map path with Aspose.Cells using the Worksheet.xmlMapQuery() method. If the path exists, it will return the list of cell areas related to that path inside xml map. The first parameter of Worksheet.xmlMapQuery() method specifies the xml element path and the second parameter specifies the xml map users want to query. Smart Art shapes are special shapes that allow to create complex diagrams automatically. Aspose.Cells allows users to detect Smart Art shapes and convert them to Group shape that enables users to handle smart art shape like a group shape. Consequently, users will have access to the individual parts or shapes of the group shape. Microsoft Excel allows users to create a shared workbook. When users share the workbook, then more than one user can edit the workbook. Aspose.Cells enables developers to create a shared workbook with Workbook.Settings.Shared property. Besides, users can protect or unprotect a shared workbook. Aspose.Cells allows to render sequence of pages of an Excel file to images using ImageOrPrintOptions.PageIndex and ImageOrPrintOptions.PageCount properties. These properties are useful when there are so many pages in an worksheet but users need to render a few pages only. This will not only save the processing time but also saves the memory consumption of the rendering process. Users can ignore all errors during the conversion process using the PdfSaveOptions.IgnoreError property. This way, conversion process will be completed smoothly without throwing any error or exception but data loss may occur. Below are some important new features, enhancement and bug fixes part of this release.

- ImageOrPrintOptions.PageIndex and ImageOrPrintOptions.Count properties needed to get the image of desired pages
