We have just released Docotic.Pdf 5.0.
This release includes version for .NET Standard Library 1.3. So, starting from 5.0, Docotic.Pdf can be used in .NET Core and Universal Windows Platform apps and services. This is in addition to .NET 2 and later frameworks, of course.
Our customers asked us to add the ability to extract vector paths from documents. And here it is. By the way, you can extract clip regions, too. Take a look at the Extract text, paths and images sample to get an idea about how it works.
Version 5 adds ability to open and create PDF documents encrypted with AES-256. This should come in handy if you need stronger security algorithms in your workflow.
We also fixed number of issues related to drawing and extraction of images. And as always, text extraction was also improved.
There are other changes. Read about all new features and improvements in Docotic.Pdf 5.0 in the Version History document.
