What is new in this release?

Aspose development team is happy to announce the monthly release of Aspose.Words for Java &.NET 14.1.0 as well as Aspose.Words for Android 1.5.0. Aspose.Words 14.1.0 includes over 100 useful new features, enhancements and bug fixes. Aspose.Words has wide support for documents created by Microsoft Word 2013 however one there was a limitation when it came to password-protection. Documents created by Microsoft Word 2013 use a different type of encryption when compared to older versions of Microsoft Word and as such were not supported by Aspose.Words from the get go when the new format was introduced. The fix included in this month’s release fix resolves this problem and Aspose.Words can now load and save such documents without any issues. A new class has been introduced which allows you to control how revisions are displayed when rendering documents to formats such as PDF, XPS etc. Use the members of LayoutOptions.RevisionOptions to fine tune how revisions appear in rendered documents. This month’s release marks further improvements to rendering performance as internal parts of the rendering process have been optimized to reduce memory usage. This improvement will reduce the possibility of OutOfMemory issues and improve the rendering performance when working with extra-large documents.
