Online PR News – 01-November-2016 – Lane Cove, NSW – What’s new in this release?

Aspose team is pleased to announce the new release of Aspose.Diagram for .NET 16.10.0. The new version of the API allows developers to create a master from scratch and include it in the Visio drawings. Developers can set an icon of the master to present data in the Visio drawings with graphics. Besides this, we have improved API to retrieve directions of all incoming and outgoing nodes as well as getting the relationship information between containers, lists, callouts, and member shapes. The recent version also includes a number of regular bug fixes and enhancements. Developers can install an Aspose.Diagram Nuget package in their .NET applications because we publish each version as a NuGet package on the NuGet gallery. Microsoft Office Visio provides a rich set of pre-made masters. We can drag a master on the Visio page, most of the resulting shapes will inherit their formulae and values from that master. In the past, our clients were placing shapes using stencil, drawing or template. Using the version 16.10.0 or higher, they can now create a Visio master from scratch and it can be repeatedly used. Aspose.Diagram API works with connected shapes in the Visio diagram. The developers use it to get structural information. We have enhanced this feature to unify the retrieval of incoming and outgoing nodes from each Visio drawing format. This version also addresses the issues of misplaced shapes, additional content, the font formatting of shape and improper change in the shape size. These enhancements and bug fixes improve performance and accuracy of Aspose.Diagram API. Here is the list of important enhancements and bugs fixes in the new version.
