What is new in this release?

We are happy to announce the release of Aspose.Tasks for .NET 7.0.0 . This month?s release includes enhancements to the rendering functionality of Aspose.Tasks API which makes it closer to the output by Microsoft Project. This release retains output view during project rendering. A project document has a number of views such as GanttChart, Task Usage, Resource Usage, Resource Sheet, Task sheet, etc. Each view has its own settings as per user?s definition and Microsoft Project retains these views while rendering data to various output formats such as PDF, PNG, and others. We are pleased to share that this month?s release exhibits the same behavior while rendering project data to different formats. This can be achieved by simply rendering the output to the desired output format without writing any extra code. Supported views in this case include Gantt Chart, Task Usage, Resource Usage,Resource Sheet & Task Sheet. This month?s release also provides the capability to retain all the columns as in the source MPP file while rendering to various output formats. This keeps all the columns in the output including custom field columns as well. This release also supports rendering project data as a single Image. Aspose.Tasks for .NET now allows rendering whole project to a single image without any page borders. This makes it possible to render large projects to a single image using large page size such as A0. This month?s release also fixes a number of bugs that were reported with the previous version of Aspose.Tasks for .NET. Below is the complete list of new features and important bug fixes included in this release.
