What's New in this Release?

 Aspose development team is happy to announce the monthly release of Aspose.Words for Java & .NET 16.5.0. This month’s release contains over 72 useful new features, enhancements and bug fixes to the Aspose.Words products. Here is a look at just a few of the biggest features and API changes in this month’s release, support of Bookmark Over 40 Characters in Exported PDF, added Explicit Support of Multiple Data Sources in LINQ Reporting Engine, Support of Suppressed Endnotes in Fixed Page File Format, support Special Handling of Backslash for IF File, improved reflow performance for large paragraphs, improved SVG output with IE compatibility, improved widow/orphan handling for tables and improved Asian text line breaking in fixed page file format.  MS Word does not allow creating bookmark over 40 characters. In previous versions of Aspose.Words, the bookmark name is truncated when its length is more than 40 characters. We have introduced new feature in this release to create bookmark over 40 characters long when the target document is PDF. An overload has been added to the ReportingEngine class. It allows using multiple data source objects while building a report. It also introduced new feature to suppress endnotes when document is exported to fixed page file format. PageSetup.SuppressEndnotes property works for only flow layout document (Word document) in previous versions of Aspose.Words. Starting from v16.5.0, this property will work for fixed page file formats e.g. Pdf, Xps. MS Word has special behavior for IF field – direct backslash in field code escapes following symbol during parsing but does not escape in field result. Starting from v16.5.0, this feature is supported by Aspose.Words. The list of new and improved features added in this release are given below
