GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET: enhanced caching options and added support for multiple instances with different root storage paths

In the latest version (2.13.0) of the GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET library released this month, we’ve implemented two new major features and over 40 minor improvements and bug fixes. The first major enhancement is the ability to cache PDF copies of original files. With this feature enabled, when setting the UsePdfPrinting and DownloadPdfFileIfPossible methods to true, the viewer doesn’t have to generate PDF copies of the original file upon each user request. Instead, the viewer checks whether the cached PDF copy of the document needs to be updated and, if not, uploads it to the client.

Another major improvement is the ability to use the viewer with an unlimited number of different independent root storage paths. For more details on the enhancements and bug fixes implemented in this release, as well as to download the latest version of the library, please go to this page.

GroupDocs.Viewer for Java: improved overall rendering accuracy and optimized memory usage

Among around 50 minor enhancements and bug fixes for GroupDocs.Viewer for Java, this month we managed to improve overall rendering accuracy, optimized dependencies and memory usage and significantly improved handling of PowerPoint files (PPT, PPTX).

We’ve improved the handling of EML and MSG files to make it more convenient for viewers to browse and explore messages without using any 3rd party email clients.

GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET: improved search capability and streams handling API

This month we have released two minor versions of the GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET library: 2.10.1 and 2.11.0. Each includes a number of fixes and optimizations, these include:

1. Fixed behavior of the SearchForSeparateWords method in the HTML-based rendering mode. Now if set to true, the viewer searches for and highlights all of the keywords specified in the search form, irrespective of the words order. Contrary, if the SearchForSeparateWords method is set to false, then the viewer searches for the exact phrase specified in the search form.

2. Previously, GroupDocs.Viewer tried to determine the document type by reading the signature at the beginning of the file. But this approach has shown to be problematic. In the latest GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET version we have implemented the fileExtension parameter as a mandatory Stream method, which allowed us to remove the file type detection to make this functionality more reliable.

3. Another API improvement was made to how the viewer generates stream names. Previously, GroupDocs.Viewer tried to generate a unique, but reproducible stream name by using its length. A more reliable approach could be to generate a hash of file contents. But it appeared to be very slow. As a result, we’ve removed the file name creation operation and set the fileName parameter of the Stream method as mandatory. For more details on this recent release and to download the library, please visit this page.

GroupDocs.Conversion for .NET: improved conversion accuracy

In GroupDocs.Conversion for .NET version 1.9.0 we improved handling of complex objects when converting PDF files to Microsoft Word documents (e.g. tables with background colors and text within cells). Now you get even more accurate and clear results in the output of the “PDF to Word” conversion operations. In addition to that, accuracy was improved for the “XPS to TXT” and “PDF to JPEG” conversion operations. For more details on this recent release and to download the library, please visit this page.

GroupDocs.Total for Cloud: improved handling of documents loaded from URLs

Several minor updates have also been implemented in GroupDocs.Total for Cloud. Among others, we would like to outline an enhancement that makes file loading from URLs more reliable. With this update we fixed an issue that in rare occurrences caused an error when trying to view a document loaded from the web.

New and Coming Soon to GroupDocs.Signature for .NET

In the latest release we've implemented a capability of verifying unique reference IDs applied to signed documents. This allows you to control whether a document was actually signed using the GroupDocs.Signature interface / library, or via some other application or tool. Here is how this works:

1. A unique reference ID is generated automatically upon signing a document. The ID is burned into the signed document as metadata and also streamed to your server using the sign method, so that you can save it.

2. Once you receive a signed document, you can verify whether the document was signed using the GroupDocs.Signature interface by checking your saved reference IDs with one in the document’s metadata.

As you may already know, GroupDocs.Signature can be used either programmatically, as a document e-signature engine, or in conjunction with an out-of-the-box UI that comes with the library. In case you use it as a pure engine, the reference ID is returned by the sign method. And when using the library along with the in-built UI, the reference ID is also saved to a database for the corresponding document. Grab the latest GroupDocs.Signature for .NET release from here.

New and Coming Soon to GroupDocs.Conversion for .NET

In this months release we've added resize functionality for document page images, when the input is from a file or an input stream.

GroupDocs.Signature for .NET updates
We've added an interface for preparing document fields to the latest version of GroupDocs.Signature for .NET. We have also added configurable summary page templates, and configurable date formats, to give developers more freedom in how they share progress information. It is now also possible to add a stamp to documents.
GroupDocs.Comparison for .NET updates
The latest version of the GroupDocs.Comparison for .NET library introduces the first release of a native PDF comparison module. This means that two PDF files can be compared directly, without interim steps. We've also improved both the performance and stability of the Word comparison module. Try it.
Coming soon to GroupDocs.Annotation for .NET
In upcoming releases, we'll add support for a wider range of annotation print modes. To improve the interface, we'll also add support for resizing annotations.
