The long awaited version of Aspose.Words for .NET & Java (11.1.0) has been released. This month’s release provides a brand new save format, you can now export any document loaded into Aspose.Words to the SVG vector image format. We now provide export of any document to SVG format. This adds to the collection of image formats you can already save a document to using Aspose.Words. These include the raster types BMP, JPG, PNG, TIFF and the vector format EMF. In previous versions, during rendering if a required font was not found on the machine or embedded in the document then in most cases Aspose.Words would fall back on the free “Gentium” font. Now, starting with this release you can specify the default to use during rendering if a font is missing. Now users can pass any TrueType fonts to the Aspose.Words engine in a variety of different ways like using the FileFontSource class to load a font from file or using the MemoryFontSource to pass a font in from an array of bytes or using FolderFontSource to load fonts from a folder or sub folders.
