AspJpeg 2.9 Released with EXIF Editing and BMP Output

In response to your requests, we have added the ability to set and modify EXIF tags in a JPEG image. The new method ChangeExifTag allows you to assign any EXIF tag, such as Artist, Image Unique ID, or GPS coordinates, to an image even if the image had no EXIF data block to begin with. This functionality is described in detail in Section 7.8 - EXIF Editing of the AspJpeg User Manual. It is also demonstrated by Live Demo #9.

We have also added the method ApplyOrientation which rotates and/or flips the image based on the embedded EXIF tag Orientation, and then resets this tag to the default value of 1. This makes the image viewable in a consistent manner across all image viewers and platforms. For more info, see Section 7.8 - EXIF Editing, sub-section 7.8.2.

Finally, AspJpeg is now capable of saving images in BMP format, in addition to JPEG, PNG and GIF. Set the new property OutputFormat to 2 to save an image as a bitmap.

New Chapter on .NET Compatibility Added to the AspEncrypt User Manual

In response to our clients' numerous support questions, we have added a new chapter to our user manual dedicated to the cipher key compatibility between AspEncrypt and the Microsoft .NET framework. Both AspEncrypt and .NET use standard ciphers, but mismatching keys may wreak havoc in an otherwise perfectly coded cryptography-based application.

Chapter 10: Microsoft .NET and AspEncrypt Compatibility covers the GenerateKeyFromPassword and ImportRawKey methods and their .NET equivalents in various scenarios, UTF8 vs. Unicode character encoding, and also legacy-related issues, such as using the MD5 hash with 3DES cipher, and 40-bit RC2 keys.

09/21/2015

AspPDF, AspPDF.NET, AspEmail and AspEmail.NET Enhancements

  • AspPDF, AspPDF.NET have been updated to include the following fixes and improvements:
    • The PDF-to-Image functionality has been optimized to improve performance and reduce memory footprint.

05/25/2015

AspPDF & AspPDF.NET 3.4, AspEncrypt 2.9 Released with Secure PDF Signing Support

AspPDF's and AspPDF.NET's digital signing functionality required that the PDF document being signed and the digital certificate used for signing be both accessible to the PdfDocument.Sign method. In most cases, this meant the private key had to be transferred to the server, which is often impossible or impractical for security reasons.

As of AspPDF & AspPDF.NET v3.4, and also AspEncrypt v2.9, the PDF being signed and the signer certificate's private key no longer need to physically meet. The PDF never has to leave the sever, and the private key never needs to leave the user's workstation. Instead, the hash value being signed and the signature itself do all the travelling.

The new functionality is described here:

AspPDF User Manual Section 8.4 - Client-Side Signing of Server-Side PDFs
AspPDF.NET User Manual Section 8.4 - Client-Side Signing of Server-Side PDFs

Please download the new versions from www.asppdf.com, www.asppdf.net and www.aspencrypt.com.


03/30/2015

AspPDF, AspPDF.NET 3.3 Released with PDF/A Support

Version 3.3 enables the creation of PDF/A-compliant documents. It also implements a fix in its PDF-to-Image module to improve performance.

The PDF/A format is a subset of the regular PDF format with certain features, deemed incompatible with long-term archival and storage of documents, removed. Several enhancements and fixes have been added to AspPDF, as well as a new method, PdfDocument.AddOutputIntent, to bring the documents it creates to the PDF/A-1b compliance level.

Please download the new versions from www.asppdf.com and www.asppdf.net.


10/23/2014

AspPDF, AspPDF.NET 3.2.0.1 Released

Some US government agencies such as the USCIS have started using barcode-equipped forms which allow a processing clerk to transfer the content of a paper form to the computer system instantly by scanning a 2-dimensional barcode residing on each page of the form and encoding the form's field data. AspPDF and AspPDF.NET now have the capability to programmatically fill out these forms and generate the PDF417 barcodes in strict accordance with the government specifications.

Also, it has been pointed out by some of our clients that the AppendDocument method may take a very long time when dozens or hundreds of documents are stitched together, and the processing time seems to grow quadratically with the number of documents being appended. This serious performance problem has been identified and fixed.

Please download the new versions from www.asppdf.com and www.asppdf.net.


09/16/2014

AspPDF, AspPDF.NET 3.2 Released

The new versions of our PDF components offer support for template graphics which simplify the creation of PDF documents based on templates as opposed to blank pages. The updates also incorporate important fixes in the HTML-to-PDF, form fill-in and other modules.

Please download the new versions from www.asppdf.com and www.asppdf.net.


06/02/2014

AspPDF, AspPDF.NET 3.1 Released

The new versions of our PDF components provide support for transparency. A new object, PdfGState, has been added to the object models to represent a graphics state and transparency group, and new chapters dedicated to various aspects of the PDF transparency model have been added to the user manuals.

Also, the new versions enhance the SendToPrinter method to enable documents to be printed in color on color printers.

Please download the new versions from www.asppdf.com and www.asppdf.net.


05/06/2014

AspEmail, AspEmail.NET 5.4 Released

Our email components have received yet another security-related feature: support for Secure Socket Layer (SSL) over Port 465.

An email client can communicate with the SMTP server over a secure channel either via TLS (ports 25 or 587) or SSL (port 465). In both cases, the underlying secure protocol is exactly the same, but it is invoked at different stages of the SMTP session -- SSL begins at the very beginning and TLS in the middle of the session. AspEmail and AspEmail.NET have supported TLS since version 5.1, and now they support SSL too.

Please download the new versions from www.aspemail.com.


05/06/2014

AspPDF, AspPDF.NET 3.0 Released

02/06/2014

AspPDF, AspPDF.NET 2.9 Released

The new versions of our PDF components incorporate a plethora of new features, enhancements and fixes:

  • The products' HTML-to-PDF functionality has been expanded. In addition to the ImportFromUrl method, which uses our in-house HTML-to-PDF conversion engine, there is now the OpenUrl method which uses Microsoft Internet Explorer's HTML rendering engine. This enables your application to create precise, albeit rasterized, snapshots of any HTML document, no matter how complex.
  • The new PdfForm.Modify method enables you to remove unwanted JavaScript from a form. This feature makes it possible to eliminate the annoying message "This PDF form requies a new version Adobe Acrobat" which pops up after the form has been fattened.
  • The PdfPage object now supports the TrimBox and BleedBox properties in addition to the existing MediaBox and CropBox properties.
  • The ability to select a tray has been added to the SendToPrinter method.
  • Several major bugs have been fixed in the text extraction module.
  • Various minor bugs have been fixed in the HTML-to-PDF, image and other modules.

Please download the new versions from www.asppdf.com and www.asppdf.net.


11/21/2013

AspEmail, AspEmail.NET Updates

Our TLS engine, shared by both AspEmail and AspEmail.NET, has been updated to eliminate the error

Handshake type 13 not supported.

This error would occur under the TLS mode with SMTP servers requesting a client certificate but not requiring one, such as, most notably, Microsoft Exchange Online (smtp.office365.com).

This important enhancement is incorporated in the service releases AspEmail 5.3.0.3 and AspEmail.NET 5.3.0.3521. The upgrades are available free of charge to the registered users. Please download the new versions from www.aspemail.com.

Please download the new versions from www.asppdf.com and www.asppdf.net.


08/28/2013

AspPDF, AspPDF.NET 2.8 Released

The new version expands the existing raw text extraction functionality by allowing the text fragments extracted from a page to be accompanied by their respective coordinates and dimensions. This allows you to know where exactly a particular text string or string fragment is on the page. This feature is implemented via the PdfPreview object's new TextItems collection.

Also, the HTML-to-PDF conversion module has been enhanced to add support for borders with rounded corners defined by CSS properties border-radius, border-top-left-radius, border-top-right-radius, border-bottom-left-radius and border-bottom-right-radius.

Please download the new versions from www.asppdf.com and www.asppdf.net.


08/01/2013

Persits Software Logo, Web Site Redesigned

Our old logo, designed back in 1999, has served us well over the years, and we will always remember it fondly. But we thought our company needed something a bit more modern-looking, so we had a new logo created, and while we were at it, had our corporate web site redesigned as well.

Persits Software's corporate image may look and feel a bit different now, but our dedication to quality in the products we build and technical support we provide remains the same as ever!


07/29/2013

AspPDF, AspPDF.NET 2.7 Released with Duplex Printing, Color Space Enhancements

Versions 2.7 of our PDF management components offer full document printing with duplex support. Previous versions could only print invidual pages in a one-sided mode.

02/04/2013

AspPDF 2.6.0.1, AspPDF.NET 2.4 Released with Form Enhancements

The new releases incorporate major enhancements in the form fill-in modules of the components. A "fontless" version of the SetFieldValue method, called SetFieldValueEx, has been added to the PdfAnnot object. This method does not require a font argument, which simplifies the coding of filling in a PDF form. Also, form flattening has been implemented via the PdfForm method Flatten. The existing SetFieldValue method has been greatly enhanced as well - it now supports auto-size fields and Unicode characters in field values.

Please download the new versions from www.asppdf.com/download.html and www.asppdf.net/download.html.
