What?s new in this release?

The long awaited version of Aspose.Pdf for .NET 7.9.0 has been released. In earlier release versions, we supported Table, Cell and Row classes under the Aspose.Pdf namespace. These provided the capability to create tables inside new and existing PDF files. Now I am pleased to share that we have added support for the FloatingBox class to the Aspose.Pdf namespace. Now you can add floating boxes when creating new documents as well as when working with existing PDF files. We have also increased the fonts support and along with the capability to use pre-installed fonts from the Windows\Font directory, you can also specify any other folder where custom fonts are present. We have introduced the Underline property to the TextState class and now you can set text formatting to Underline (earlier versions only supported Bold and Italic). Some enhancements regarding PDF to DOC and PDF to image conversion are also introduced. Please visit the following link for further details on what?s new and fixed. This release includes plenty of new and improved features as listed below
