This month’s release contains over 68 useful new features, enhancements and bug fixes to the Aspose.Words product.

It has added the HtmlSaveOptions.ExportTextBoxAsSvg property in this release to control how textboxes represented by Shape are saved to HTML, MHTML or EPUB.

Now all save option classes of fixed page formats (HtmlFixedSaveOptions, ImageSaveOptions, PdfSaveOptions, PsSaveOptions, SvgSaveOptions, SwfSaveOptions, XamlFixedSaveOptions and XpsSaveOptions) are inherited from the new public abstract class FixedPageSaveOptions.
