What’s new in this release?

Aspose team is pleased to announce the release of Aspose.PDF for Java 18.9 . It has been released for .NET and Java platforms with new 18.9 version. In this version of the API, we have introduced exciting features to improve usability and performance of the API. Aspose.PDF provides functionality to create PDF documents which are compatible with PDF/UA Standard (also known as “Section 508” or “WCAG Standard”) and also to check compatibility with these standards. These standards describe requirements for document contents to make it more friendly and useful for people with disabilities and also for users with highly limited devices. When users make your PDF documents accessible or create Tagged PDFs, it means adding tags, bookmarks, alt text, and other information that makes the files readable and navigable to users who are visually or mobility impaired. Using Aspose.PDF, it is now achievable to create valid, accessible PDF documents.  In order to create PDF Document with Tagged Text, Aspose.PDF offers TaggedPdfTextElement Class to serve the purpose. An article in the documentation section shows how to use API in order to create PDF documents with tagged text. In addition to adding tagged text inside PDF document, adding tagged image functionality has also been introduced in latest release. The PDF/UA compliance validation has been implemented in manners similar to PDF/A validation. You can now validate whether a PDF document is Section 508 or PDF/UA compliant or not. The example is provided in the API documentation section that shows how to validate a PDF document for PDF/UA compliance. Along with the new features mentioned above, there are some useful improvements and enhancements included in latest release, such as PDF to TIFF Conversion has been improved, Feature to flatten PDF Forms is further improved, Conversion feature related to PDF/A Standard is improved,  Implemented Rectangle Property for HtmlFragment, Support of Stream for loading PCL document has been added, Text reading module has been improved to extract multi-column paragraphs and PDF to XPS Conversion is further improved.
