Comparing Aspose.Cells version 4.5 with 5.1

Hello,

We are using Aspose.Cells version 4.5.0.0 and planning to upgrade it to version 5.1. Request your help to list the features in the new version and compare these 2 versions of Aspose.Cells.

This will enable us to understand the benefits in upgrading the product and take this forward.

Thank you!

Sanjoy.

Hi,

Well, we have made lots of enhancements and incorporated many new features especially for Excel 2007 and Excel 2010 for XLSX, XLSB, XLSM or other formats in the new versions of Aspose.Cells now. Moreover, we have optimized different internal modules for different functions, so the performance is more enhanced.

The best way to know about the new features or enhancements, please check released note of different new releases e.g 5.0.0, 5.1.0, 5.1.1, 5.1.2 and 5.1.3 (latest) etc. e.g

Some other important features are listed here.

1) Sheet to image feature is included and enhanced.
2) Chart to Image feature is enhanced/included.
3) Independent Excel to PDF feature is included where you do not need Aspose.Pdf product any more.
4) Printing feature is included.
5) Formula calculation engine is enhanced to certain extent that it support almost all the formulas that MS Excel (97-2010) supports.
6) We have merged Aspose.Grid controls to Aspose.Cells for .NET
package, so when you install the product, it will provide the main
Aspose.Cells.dll library with two additional controls
(Aspose.Cells.GridDesktop and Aspose.Cells.GridWeb) now.


Moreover, please check our documentation and demos which will provide insight and reference to the features and enhancements completely.
