What is new in this release?

We are happy to announce the release of revamped version of Aspose.Tasks for .NET 8.5.0 . This month?s release includes new features of retrieving Page setup information from MPP file, and enhancements such as reading embedded objects and ignoring invalid characters while reading such MPP files. This section provides details about the new features as well as enhancements that are part of this month?s release. Microsoft Project provides complete Page setup dialog with 6 tabs that can be used to configure headers, footers, legend, margin and other information. Aspose.Tasks API now provides the capability to retrieve this information using the PageInfo class. Microsoft Project data files (MPP/XML) may contain embedded objects such as documents, excel sheets, PDF, images etc. in Task or Resource views. Aspose.Tasks API provides the capability to extract these from a project?s Task or Resource. The Project class provides OleObjects collection that contains all the embedded objects of the Project for accessing. Some Project files may have invalid characters in the custom fields. Though MS Project does not allow invalid character, such files can be created or manipulated with automation or some other tools. If these are tried to be loaded using the API, they may lead to exception. In order to ignore such invalid characters, the overloaded constructor of Project class can be used with the delegate method ParseErrorCallBack. This month?s release also includes other improvements by fixing a number of bugs such as wrong calculation of assignment units after changing the task duration. This, combined with other internal improvements in the API, lead to further improvements in API functionality. Bellows is the list of new and enhanced features included in this new release.

-Ability to extract objects embedded in task or resource view form
-Implement embedded Bitmap Image extraction from views.
-Implement PageSettings writing to mpp
-Read Header and Footer data from MPP files.
-Ignore invalid characters
-Wrong calculation of assignment units after changing the task duration
