Breaking Changes

Updated JqueryUI version

11.3.0.3 and newer use JqueryUI-1.13.1

This means the proper includes for 11.3.0.3 and up are

<!-- Js scripts in correct order -->
<script src="WebDocViewer/jquery-3.5.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script src="WebDocViewer/jquery-ui-1.13.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script src="WebDocViewer/raphael-min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script src="WebDocViewer/clipboard.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script src="WebDocViewer/atalaWebDocumentViewer.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<!-- CSS files in correct order --> <link href="WebDocViewer/jquery-ui-1.13.1.min.css" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" /> <link href="WebDocViewer/atalaWebDocumentViewer.css" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />

New Features

maxpagebuffersize property for WDV config

As part of a fix for a race condition in WDV, we also added a new config property to wdv - maxpagebuffersize.

This is an int and can be set to limit the max number of pages - and may be useful in situations where the container WDV is in may not be sized until later calucuations - set it to a number and WDV and WDT will never try and requrest more than that many pages for lazy loading - this should NOT be needed due to better calculation logic added in 11.3.0.3, but it's available

11.3.0.0 Initial Release

v11.3.0.0.668 - October 2021

Breaking Changes

Atalasoft developers work very hard to limit breaking changes in our SDK. We're happy to announce that we've avoided direct breaking changes requiring code changes in the use of our API.

AbbyyEngine OCR Removed

v 11.2 was the last version that officially supported AbbyyEngine as one of our OcrEngine options. As of 11.3, it was replaced with OmniPageEngine. Users with existing AbbyyEngine licensing from Atalasoft should be receiving new/updated OmniPageEngine licensing

WebDocumentViewer / WebCapture

11.3 initial release did not bring any changes to the required / minimum versions of jQuery (3.5.1) or jQueryUI (1.12.1)

This means that the includes/requirements remained the same from 11.2 through 11.3.0.2

11.3.0.0-11.3.0.2 Script Includes

<!-- Js scripts in correct order -->
<script src="WebDocViewer/jquery-3.5.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script src="WebDocViewer/jquery-ui-1.12.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script src="WebDocViewer/raphael-min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script src="WebDocViewer/clipboard.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script src="WebDocViewer/atalaWebDocumentViewer.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<!-- CSS files in correct order --> <link href="WebDocViewer/jquery-ui-1.12.1.min.css" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" /> <link href="WebDocViewer/atalaWebDocumentViewer.css" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />

Obsolete components

Support for the following has been removed in this version:

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
  • Visual Studio 2010
  • AbbyyEngine OCR engine

Updates / Improvements

PDF 2.0 Support

Atalasoft now supports the ISO23000-2 specification for PDF

PDF 2.0 support added to:

  • PdfDocument
  • PdfGeneratedDocument
  • PdfDocumentSigner
  • PdfEncoder
using(PdfGeneratedDocument doc = new PdfGeneratedDocument(stream))
{
    doc.PdfVersion = 2.0;
    doc.Save("out.pdf");
}

Adds support for AES-256 for password protected PDF 2.0

PDF Enhancements

PdfAnnotationDataConverter

We've added a new PdfAnnotationDataConverter which is useful for converting Atalasoft annotation objects to native PDF annotations to be used in PdfGeneratedDocument and PdfDocument and PdfDocumentSigner

RTL (Right to Left) Languages now supported with PdfGeneratedDocument

Barcode Enhancements

Indian Invoices QR Code Support

WDV Support for PDF Bookmarks

PDF Bookmarks are now supported by WebDocumentViewer. To enable them you need to set showbookmarks: true in the WebDocumentViewer configuration

    var _viewer = new Atalasoft.Controls.WebDocumentViewer({
        parent: $('#_containerViewer'), // parent container to put the viewer in
        toolbarparent: $('#_toolbar1'), // parent container to put the viewer toolbar in
        serverurl: '/WebDocViewerHandler.ashx', // server handler url to send image requests to
        allowannotations: true, // flag to enable annotations
        savepath: 'Saved/', // relative url to save annotation data to
        showscrollbars: true,
        forcepagefit: true,
        showbookmarks: true
    });

WDV Tiling Feature Added

WebDocumentViewer (WDV) now supports tiling for large PDF images (Tiling will be ignored for any other source images other than PDF).

This will not directly improve loading speeds on large files but should start sending up visual feedback of file loading in a way that gives uses a sense of progress - testing has shown that although the load time is the same, the perception by the user is of a faster, more responsive experience with loading large size files

To implement tiling it is necessary to add some configuration changes:

tiling: true

OfficeDecoder RenderSettings

In response to several customer requests, we've added new RenderSettings property to the OfficeDecoder

The RenderSettings property has two sub-properties: MsExcelSettings and MsWordSettings... each of those will contain settings specific to the type of documents indicated

MsExcelSettings

Under to MsExcelSettings is a RenderHiddenElements property which can be set to true or false. This will tell the decoder if it should honor the Excel setting for Hidden cells. The default is true

 officeDecoder.RenderSettings.MsExcelSettings.RenderHiddenElements = false;

MsWordSettings

Added to MsWordSettings is a RenderMarkUp property which can be set to true or false. This will tell the decoder if it should display markup or not. The default is false

officeDecoder.RenderSettings.MsWordSettings.RenderMarkUp = true;
