The long awaited version of Aspose.Cells for Java 7.7.2 has been released. This new release supports reading password protected Microsoft Excel 2013 files. We provide the Style.setJustifyDistributed() method so you can apply the justify distributed setting while applying text alignment settings on cells. We also provide support for B3 (13.9 x 19.7 inches) and Business Card (90 mm x 55 mm) PaperSizeType. We have enhanced the unhiding rows/columns feature in this release. While making a hidden column or row visible, if you want to restore it to previously assigned width/height or to its original width/height, you can unhide the column or row with a negative width/height. We have added a number of enhancements and fixes in the new release. For example, you can now print comments in a Microsoft Excel document while rendering to PDF.We have improved the chart to image and sheet to image modules and fixed issues with manipulating charts and shapes. Several other important issues have also been addressed. Issues to do with exporting Excel workbooks to PDF format have been resolved.
