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?

We are pleased to announce the new release of Aspose.Cells for .NET 8.2.1.  This new release includes over 30 enhancements and bug fixes. 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 use to stop users from inserting invalid values into a particular cell. With the release of Aspose.Cells for .NET 8.2.1, the API has exposed a simple mechanism that identifies if data validation has been applied on a cell. Use the Cell.GetValidation method to acquire any applied validation. If there is no validation, the method returns null. Similarly, use the Validations.GetValidationInCell method to acquire the validation applied on any cell by providing its row and column indices. In addition to determining whether validation has been applied, you can also verify if a given value satisfies the data validation rules for a particular cell. This feature is useful in scenarios when you want to verify if the value entered in the cell satisfies the data validation rules on the fly. The Aspose.Cells API has exposed the GetValidationValue method for the Cell class. If the value entered in a cell does not satisfy the data validation rules, the Cell.GetValidationValue method returns false.Prior to the release of Aspose.Cells for .NET 8.2.1, it was not easy to calculate the absolute position of a given shape in a worksheet. The latest revision of Aspose.Cells for .NET has exposed a simple mechanism for achieving this by exposing the LeftToCorner and TopToCorner properties for the Shape class. These properties store the absolute position of the shape inside the worksheet in unit of pixels.Aspose team has fixed a number of critical issues with this release. The most noteworthy problems that version 8.2.1 has fixed few problems that caused the System.ArgumentException & System.IndexOutOfRangeException, improved the features related to the hyperlinks in a spreadsheet as well as enhanced the PDF rendering engine to improve the fidelity of rendered shapes, charts & page breaks.
