Press Releases

Welcome to the new Press Releases forum! Our old press release system has been retired but we've moved everything and everyone to a new, shinier home. Enjoy!

A press release must be written for the purpose of announcing something newsworthy. Advertisements, promotions, or anything smelling even vaguely of spam will be deleted. All press releases must be relevant to the development community.

What’s new in this release?

The long awaited version of Aspose.Cells for Java 8.2.1 has been released. Microsoft Excel 2013 allows users to wrap or un-wrap data label text in a excel chart. The default is the wrapped state. Aspose.Cells provides the setTextWrapped method for the DataLabels class, which can be set to true or false in order to enable or disable the data label text wrapping feature. Moreover, you can use the isTextWrapped method to find out if a data label’s text is already wrapped. Before the release of Aspose.Cells for Java 8.2.1, finding the absolute position of a shape in the worksheet required a lot of mathematical calculation. Even after writing dozens lines of source code developers had to use the “hit & try” mechanism to find out the exact position of a shape. With this release, developers can simply call the Shape.getLeftToCorner and Shape.getTopToCorner methods to get the absolute position in the unit of pixels for a shape. Aspose.Cells for .NET is an easy to use spreadsheet creation, manipulation and conversion API that provides all the features that Microsoft Excel provides. Cell validation is one of the features that spreadsheet designers widely use to stop users from inserting invalid values into a cell. With this release, the API has exposed a simple means to identify if data validation has been applied on a particular cell. Developers can use the Cell.getValidation method to acquire applied validation. Moreover, developers can use the Validations.getValidationInCell method to acquire the validation applied on any cell by providing its row and column indices. In addition to the feature discussed above, it can verify if a given value satisfies the data validation rules for a cell. This feature is useful when developers want to verify if the value entered into a cell satisfies the data validation rule on the fly. Aspose.Cells API has exposed the getValidationValue method for Cell class. If the value in a cell does not satisfy the data validation rules, the Cell.getValidationValue method returns false. It sees the base code tweaked and the core functionality closer to Aspose.Cells for .NET 8.2.1, from which Aspose.Cells for Java is ported. The latest release has fixed numerous problems, and the most notable of these enhancements are the PDF rendering engine to handle shapes more appropriately, tweaked the HTML rendering engine for better layout and improved Chart2Image feature to handle text boxes present in charts. This release includes plenty of improved features and bug fixes as listed below
