This week's book giveaway is in the General Computing forum. We're giving away four copies of Arduino in Action and have Martin Evans, Joshua Noble, and Jordan Hochenbaum on-line! See this thread for details.
Aspose Developers team has been working on Aspose.BarCode for Java to make its features set closer to Aspose.BarCode for .NET and we have now completed that work. All new features and bug fixes that make it into the latest release of .NET are now also available in the Java version. So from now on, whether your platform is .NET or Java, you will get the latest updates, features and bug fixes.
The new release of Aspose.BarCode for Java 4.4.0 has been released. It includes a few API changes and your existing code needs to be updated to use the latest version. We had to make these changes to keep the class and method names in Aspose.BarCode for Java and Aspose.BarCode for .NET similar. The changes are easy to make if you use the auto-completion feature of the IDE. Most necessary changes can also be done using the Find/Replace All feature of the editor. The Programmer’s Guide has been updated to incorporate the changes. But still, if you find any issue, please contact us in forums and we will be happy to assist you. Below is the list of main new and improved features added in this release
