What is new in this release?

We are happy to announce the release of revamped version of Aspose.Tasks for .NET 8.4.1 . This month?s release includes new features in addition to the API improvements as a result of bug fixes. This month?s release of Aspose.Tasks includes a new feature of reading Primavera MPX file format and adding extended attributes to Resource Assignments. Aspose.Tasks already facilitates importing and exporting Project data from Primavera file formats. In our last month?s release, we introduced the feature of exporting project data to Primavera MPX format. This month?s release now further enhances this capability by providing the capability of reading Primavera MPX file data. What this means is that the API now supports reading Calendar, Resource, Task, Extended Attributes, Resource Assignments and Recurring Task information from the MPX file. Once imported, the data can be exported to any other formats such as MPP, XML, and other Primavera formats. With this month?s release, Aspose.Tasks for .NET now supports adding extended attributes to Resource Assignments of a project. This feature has been implemented for all versions of Microsoft Project (MSP) i.e. 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013. The structural implementation of this feature was already in place, but these were not visible in the output file. This month?s release includes further improvements as a result of a number of bug fixes. These include project Reading Exceptions while reading certain project files, exception raised while reading slack values in scientific notation, functional issue with calculation for working with 24-hour calendar and issue with adding calendar to project. Bellows is the list of new and enhanced features included in this new release.

-Adding Extended Attributes to ResourceAssignment for visibility in MSP
