The long awaited version of Aspose.Cells for Java 18.11 has been released. It contains enhancements and bugs resolution for many of the issues. Smart art is addressed in this release such that text can be updated in the shapes. This feature will enable users to modify these objects at runtime rather than fixed text in the shapes. Last section on this page contains more details and links about this product. Pivot tables are very common reports which are present in the workbooks. These reports are updated time by time and it is important to know the last time when report was updated for better decision making. Aspose.Cells has provided this feature by introducing property RefreshDate. Similarly name of the person who updated the pivot table is also provided as property RefreshedByWho. Smart art is used for better representation of information however earlier the text in the smart art shapes was fixed. This limitation is gone now as now smart art text can be updated. For this purpose shape.setText() function is introduced which sets new text in the smart art shape. Data validation is done in variety of ways to control the input in the Excel file. Like limit can be defined for a cell within which some number can be entered, otherwise error message is raised. Issues were faced for validation of large numbers like 12345678901 etc. in the past but now this much large numbers are supported by Aspose.Cells. Aspose.Cells has introduced rendering active worksheet in a workbook to SVG. For this purpose load an Excel file into workbook object and set the active sheet index like for Sheet2, set index to 1. Then save the Workbook as SVG which will render active worksheet to SVG. There are some other enhancements included and a few exceptions handled in the new release for the users. A few of the worth mentioning features and other improvements includes wrong count of validation values is read from XLSX, Issue while treating consecutive delimiters as distinct, Date format is incorrect for Japanese locale, Aspose.Cells.GridWeb (Java) crashes when using it concurrently in a multi user environment and Resolving issues in getting actual chart size.
