We are pleased to announce the release of Aspose.Tasks for Java 9.3.0 . Ported from its equivalent .NET version, this month’s release includes the same features, enhancements and bug fixes. Our documentation section, Public API Changes in Asose.Tasks for Java, lists all the changes that are part of this month’s release. This latest version of the Aspose.Tasks for Java API now supports loading project data from Primavera SQLite database. The PrimaveraDbSettings class provides the necessary parameters setting facility for connecting to the SQLite database. With this latest release of the API, you can now render project dates to output in a new format such as 19/07/2016. This can be achieved using the DateDdMmYyyy member of the DateFormat enumerator. This month’s release also provides an enhancement where the recalculation of Actual and Remaining work task fields is supported now. This month’s release also fixes a number of bugs that were reported with the last version of the API. It gives further improvement and stability to the API functionality. Below is the complete list of bug fixes and enhanced features included in this release.
