Could I please get a working link to view/download the API documentation for Aspose Cells for Java 2.5.3? I’ve attempted repeatedly to download the zip file in your downloads section but it appears to be broken and simply refreshes the entire page or gives me a 404. Thank you.
Thanks for your posting and considering Aspose.Cells.
We are afraid, we do not maintain the old API(s). You will have to upgrade to latest version and use the latest API(s)
I would love to upgrade, however we have only purchased a license that allows us to upgrade to 2.5.3 at the maximum. So, considering we have paid for the ability to use this software I would appreciate you providing me with the tools I need to do that. You are welcome to provide us with a free upgrade to our license so we can use the latest version, but barring that I will need a copy of the API documentation for version 2.5.3 of Aspose Cells for Java. Thank you.
Thanks for your posting and using Aspose.Cells.
We are afraid, we do not maintain older versions and documentation. So you cannot have these. It is our company policy to provide fixes and maintain documentation of latest versions only.
I’m sorry, but that is unacceptable. I understand that you don’t want to be fixing bugs for old versions, but that is not what I am asking for. I am asking simply for the API documentation for the 2.5.3 version of Aspose Cells. We purchased the right to use your product, and the lack of this documentation is making that impossible.
Excellent, thank you!
dgulick:At the very least a notification on the download page, and the removal of the intentionally broken download links, would be very much appreciated so that people don't waste time wondering why your site is broken.I think it makes sense, I will ask the concerned authorities to check it and if we can provide and navigate the users to some page where an appropriate message is pasted when a user clicks on a download link of the product release which is older than one year or so, etc.Thank you.
I hope you are well.
We are sorry for the inconvenience. If you check older releases of any product say ‘Aspose.Cells for Java’ you will notice that there is no ‘Download’ button in the last column as compared to latest releases which indicates that this release is no longer available for download. However our downloads module also have a context menu which opens when you right click on any release and the ‘Download’ link in this context menu was broken. We have now removed this ‘Download’ option from context menu as well to stop any confusion.
