Aspose.Words 10 backward compatibility with Aspose.Words 4.0.2 BETA

Hi There,

Do you expect changes to the Java API in the upcoming Aspose.Words 10 release as compared to the current Java 4.0.2 BETA release. For example, do you expect that API that allows PDF to Words conversion, mail merge or printing to change?

We have an existing application based on Aspose.Words 4.0.2 release and we wondering whether the application will run under Aspose.Words 10.


Hi Eric,

Thanks for your inquiry. You are right, there will be few breaking changes in API. This is because the next 10.0.0 version of Aspose.Words for Java will be fully synchronized with .NET version of Aspose.Words. So Aspose.Words for Java API will correspond Aspose.Words for .NET API. But do not worry, no existing functionality will be lost and it will not be difficult to change your existing code.
For example as one of breaking changes we will remove Document.saveToPdf(String) method. To save to PDF you should use,SaveFormat) method.
All breaking changes in API will be described in release notes of new version.
Best regards,
