What’s new in this release?

Aspose team is pleased to announce the release of Aspose.PDF for Java 18.6 . This release includes new features as well as fixes to the bugs reported by our customer in earlier versions. Adding text with rotation angle can be an important requirement in particular scenarios of text generation in PDF. In order to add text with rotation in PDF document, you can use setRotation() method of TextState Class to specify rotation angle of text. Along with functionality of adding rotated text inside PDF, extraction of that text and determining rotation angle of text characters has also been implemented in this release of the API. TextFragmentAbsorber class has further been enhanced to support extraction of rotation angle of text characters. PDF to XLS as well as other file format conversion was already supported in Aspose.PDF for Java. However, a new conversion feature i.e. PDF to XLSX has been introduced in this release of the API. All descendants of com.aspose.pdf.Operator has been moved under the namespace com.aspose.pdf.operators. Thus ‘new com.aspose.pdf.operators.GSave()’ should be used instead of ‘new com.aspose.pdf.Operator.GSave()’. While upgrading to latest version of the API, you will need to upgrade your existing code where you were using previous com.aspose.pdf.Operator namespace. There are some important enhancements and bug fixes part of this release, such as PDF to HTML Conversion has been improved in terms of visibility and formatting of symbols, Fonts handling and watermark rendering have been improved further, Improved memory consumption by API methods and calls, Worked over formula based fields while converting from XFA to Standard AcroForms, Consistency of text format has been maintained while converting PDF to PDF/A, Redaction Annotation feature has been further improved and Worked over producing better results while extracting bookmarks from PDF.
