What is new in this release?

The long awaited version of Aspose.Words for Java &.NET 13.8.0 has been released. Postscript is a page description language known for its wide use in the electronic and desktop publishing areas. For this reason it is often referred to as “the printer language” as it has become the de facto standard for printing quality output. Aspose.Words for .NET and Java now supports saving directly to PostScript format (this format is not supported in Aspose.Words for Android as it does not support printing yet). This format provides an opportunity for users to improve printing performance even further by avoiding the printing framework of the platform which can add unnecessary overhead when printing via traditional means. With support for saving directly to PostScript these commands can be sent directly to the printer. When a Microsoft Word document has editing restrictions and is marked to allow no changes you can still add exceptions and allow specific users to edit certain range of a document. Aspose.Words now supports working with protected ranges and can preserve them correctly when saving to and from DOC, DOCX, WML and RTF formats. Alongside this new feature is a brand new API to access and modify the various details of protected ranges in a document. This sees the introduction of two new nodes in the Aspose.Words document object model including a façade class to allow easy access of the range a single entity. This month’s release also provides further members to the already rich API for working with document styles. The list of new and improved features in this release are listed below
