Aspose team has tested Aspose.Words for Java with Java 10 and is pleased to announce that Java 10 is now supported by the latest versions of Aspose.Words for Java. Developers can insert contents of outer documents to their reports dynamically using LINQ Reporting. Starting from Aspose.Words for Java 18.8, developers can enable doc tag to check the template syntax and populate with data using LINQ Reporting. By default, a document being inserted is not checked against template syntax and is not populated with data. It has added support to create snip corner rectangles in this version. This release has added HtmlSaveOptions.ExportCidUrlsForMhtmlResources property. Users can use this property to save the resources of MHTML document using the “Content-Id” URL Scheme. It has also added new property ShowComments in LayoutOptions class. This property is used to show or hide comments in fixed file formats e.g. PDF, XPS. By default, the comments are visible. A new property ShowInBalloons has been added to RevisionOptions class. This property is used to show revisions in the balloons. By default, the revisions in balloons are not shown. Previously, Aspose.Words used to save “@font-face” rules of HtmlFixed documents into a separate file “fontFaces.css” while other CSS declarations were written to “styles.css”. We have changed this behavior and now Aspose.Words saves all CSS rules and declarations into the same file “styles.css”. In case the old behavior is required for compatibility with legacy code, it can be restored by using the new public property HtmlFixedSaveOptions.SaveFontFaceCssSeparately. It has added new property RecognizeUtf8Text in RtfLoadOptions class. This property allows to detect UTF-8 encoded characters and preserve them during import. Obsolete value NumInDash was removed from NumberStyle enum. Please, use NumberStyle.NumberInDash value instead. Obsolete method ToTxt() was removed from Node class. Please, use ToString(SaveFormat.Text) instead. The obsolete property Location has been removed from the FootnoteOptions and EndnoteOptions classes. Please use the Position property. Also, the FootnoteLocation emum type has been removed. The list of most notable new and improved features added in this release are given below
