What?s new in this release?

The long awaited version of Aspose.Slides for .NET (8.2.0) ) has been released. This is one of major releases whereby we have introduced some new features and have fixed some of major issues incurring in the earlier versions. We have enhanced the support for SmartArt loading, saving, editing, and 2d-rendering of objects.

For your convenience, we have also added the sample dashboard application as well along with product release that fetch the programmer guide examples from Github, so that you can instantly try using the programmer guide samples on your end.
