What is new in this release?

The long awaited version of Aspose.Words for .NET 10.0.0 has been released. This release is important because it delivers several important features; some have been in development for long time. But the most important milestone of this release is that from now on we will be releasing Aspose.Words for .NET and Aspose.Words for Java on the same day with the same set of features and fixes in both products. Some important issues addressed in this release are Support for table styles in DOC, Aspose.Words now preserves Office Math formulas and equations during DOCX roundtrips, Custom XML support, Add support for Word 2007 content controls and many more. Before today Aspose.Words supported table styles in DOCX and WordprocessingML formats during roundtrips and conversions. When converting to other formats table styles were converted to direct formatting, that preserved visual fidelity, but the table styles themselves were lost. Now we added support of tables styles in DOC documents. This means that conversions between DOC, DOCX and WML will preserve table styles. Starting from this release Aspose.Words supports Custom XML in all Microsoft Word document formats DOC, DOCX, RTF and WordML 2003. Custom XML elements and attributes are preserved during conversions and programmatically accessible from the Aspose.Words public API. The list of new and improved features in this release are listed below

- Table Styles are supported in DOC documents.
- Office Math Markup Language (OMML) formulas are preserved during DOCX roundtrips.
- Custom XML is supported in WordprocessingML 2003 documents.
- More fidelity when rendering DrawingML objects.
