What's New in this Release?
We are pleased to announce the release of Aspose.Tasks for Java 7.2.0. This month’s release includes the same enhancements and bug fixes that were part of the .NET version. It includes rendering enhancements as well as support for WBS Code Definitions reading/writing. Developers may also share their feedback with us over Aspose.tasks forum. This month’s release provides the support for code mask in WBS code definition. It allows reading the code mask associated with the WBS code definitions and writes these while saving to output MPP. The WBSCodeDefinition property (of the Project class) is used for this purpose. Aspose.Tasks for Java now provides improved project data rendering where task links such as FS, SS, FF and SF are rendered across horizontal as well as vertical pages. Earlier, this was limited to rendering the same across single pages only. This month’s release also includes a number of bug fixes related to various functionalities of the API, such as missing values while rendering project data, wrong WBS, Max. Units and W.Comp values calculation, differences in calculated and output values and text alignment issues while rendering project data. Below is the complete list of new features and important bug fixes included in this release.
