Questions on 3.x / 4.x upgrades

Hi,
We are currently running Aspose Words for Java 2.4.2, and are considering upgrading.
A few questions for you:

  1. The major issues we’re currently having with 2.4.2 are that it does not support .docx files, or any document saved on an apple machine. Will release 3 or 4 resolve this?
  2. Do you have any idea how close the Aspose Words for Java version 4 is to a stable release? We have very limited technical resources, and would hate to put the effort into upgrading to version 3, only to have to upgrade to version 4 in a few months.

Thanks!

Hello
Thanks for your request. Yes, of course, Aspose.Words for Java already supports DOCX format. Please see the following link for more information:
https://docs.aspose.com/words/java/supported-document-formats/
In 4.0.0 version we added converting to PDF feature. This feature is still in beta, that is why 4.0.2 version has “beta” prefix.
I will notify you as soon as converting to PDF in Aspose.Words for Java is out of beta. It will be somewhere in this month.
Also please have a look at this:
