Regression

Public API and Backward Incompatible Changes

This section lists public API changes that were introduced in Aspose.Words 16.8.0. It includes not only new and obsoleted public methods, but also a description of any changes in the behavior behind the scenes in Aspose.Words which may affect existing code. Any behavior introduced that could be seen as a regression and modifies existing behavior is especially important and is documented here.

Added HtmlLoadOptions.SupportVml public property

WORDSNET-6933 is resolved and we have added new public property to HtmlLoadOptions class:

Added HtmlSaveOptions.ExportTextBoxAsSvg public property

WORDSNET-10041 is resolved and we have added new public property to HtmlSaveOptions class:

HtmlLoadOptions public class is introduced

WORDSNET-6933 is resolved and HtmlLoadOptions class is a subclass of LoadOptions and should be used instead of LoadOptions whenever specific options are needed to be set when loading HTML document.
Currently HtmlLoadOptions class has two properties:

Base property LoadOptions.WebRequestTimeout is marked as obsolete and will be removed in several releases. If you need to specify web request timeout use HtmlLoadOptions.WebRequestTimeout property.

Use case:

WORDSNET-13188 Changes in save options of fixed page formats

1. 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.

2. The MetafileRenderingOptions property has become available in the SwfSaveOptions class:

3. The JpegQuality property has become available in the XamlFixedSaveOptions and XpsSaveOptions classes:

Jpeg quality was 100 for the XAML and XPS formats in the previous version. Now its default value is 95 to unify with the other formats (except PDF).

The analogue of NEXT fields is added to LINQ Reporting Engine

The "Forcing Movement to Next Item within Data Band" section of the engine's documentation was added to describe the change
