What is new in this release?

The long awaited version of Aspose.Words for Java &.NET 10.7.0 has been released. Support for OLE objects embedded in Word documents has been available in Aspose.Words for long time. ActiveX control is a technology related to OLE. ActiveX controls are stored in the same way as OLE objects in the binary .DOC documents and they have been already supported by Aspose.Words. But ActiveX controls stored in OOXML documents are stored differently to OLE objects and they were not supported by Aspose.Words during DOCX open/save cycles. Footnotes and endnotes in Word documents always have a reference mark. Most of the time, the reference mark is an auto-generated number, such as i, ii, iii etc. But it turns our many customers actually use custom characters as reference mark for footnotes and endnotes, for example “*”. This Aspose.Words release addresses a long-standing feature request to support proper rendering of footnotes and endnotes with reference marks to PDF and other formats.
