What?s new in this release?

The long awaited version of Aspose.Pdf for .NET 7.8.0 has been released. One of the salient features of this release is to provide support for rendering PDF document to PostScript (PS) format. Accomplishing this requirement has been made very easy by introducing support in the PdfViewer class. Now you simply need to install PostScript drivers on your system, use the PdfViewer class and you are good to go with the conversion. As per the Document Object Model (DOM) approach, each object inside a PDF file can be individually accessed and manipulated. Therefore taking benefit of this mechanism, we have introduced Image Collection support. Recently we have worked on a requirement to remove headers and footers from PDF files. To fulfill this requirement, we?ve added the PdfFileStamp.StampId property. This property allows you to set an identifier for new stamps (including header, footer, page number). The added stamp may be removed using the PdfContentEditor: add header, footer and page number while assigning them an arbitrary IDs, and later remove them with those IDs. With the release of this version, we have enhanced the capabilities of our product so you can set color from the CMYK, gray and RGB color spaces. The TextState and TextFragmentState objects have properties to set BackgroundColor and ForegroundColor. we have also made many improvements in terms of performance while converting TIFF to PDF, PDF to TIFF, HTML to PDF, XPS to PDF, PDF to XPS, PDF printing, image replacement, image extraction, text watermarking, image stamping and much more.
