We are pleased to announce the new release of Aspose.Diagram for Java 17.4.0 . The new version of the API has improved the feature of importing a Bitmap image as a shape in Visio drawing. Developers can also find improvements in routing and building the structure of connectors with a high accuracy rate. All the regular bug fixes are also included. We recommend our clients use the powerful Aspose for Java APIs directly in their Maven Projects with simple configurations. Aspose.Diagram for Java API has already added support of importing graphics in the Visio drawing. Developers may then export the Visio drawing to any supported format. The new API version 17.4 has enhanced the import of Bitmap image internally without any API change. Developers can now import a Bitmap image even in their complex drawings. Aspose.Diagram for Java API has also made improvements in routing mechanism to address the connections of Visio shapes as well as auto routing of connectors. This helps developers to track the flow of nodes because the clarity is important in drawings.
