This month’s release introduces new features of reading Primavera MPX format files, header and footer data, and adding extended attributes to resource assignments for visibility in Microsoft Project (MSP). It also provides a number of enhancements and other improvements by fixing various functionality bugs.Page setup information about a Project file spans on a separate dialog in Microsoft Project to provide all page settings of the document. Aspose.Tasks API now provides the capability of reading the page setup information from the MPP file using the PageInfo class. This class provides information about, Page headers and footers, Page settings, Page view settings, page margins and Legends. Project files may have invalid characters in the custom fields. MS Project does not allow invalid character so the files have been created or manipulated with automation or some other tools. If these be loaded using the API, they may lead to exception. In order to ignore such invalid characters, the overloaded constructor of Project class can be used with the delegate method ParseErrorCallBack. Embedded objects (those which were created from file by selecting a file path) are packed into OLE Package inside MPP file. Aspose.Tasks for Java API allows extracting embedded objects from a Task or Resource view. The OleObject class contains information about the embedded objects in Task or Resource View. This month’s release also includes a number of bug fixes that further improves the API functionality. These also include some calculation bugs that could have effect on the generated output. Below is the complete list of bug fixes and enhanced features included in this release.

- Ability to extract objects embedded in task or resource view form
- Implement embedded Bitmap Image extraction from views.
- Implement PageSettings writing to mpp
- Read Header and Footer data from MPP files.
- Adding Extended Attributes to ResourceAssignment for visibility in MSP

- [Custom Fields] Ignore invalid characters
- Wrong calculation of assignment units after changing the task duration
