Fixes for handling of disposable objects in Docotic.Pdf 7.3

We released Docotic.Pdf 7.3 on our site and on NuGet.

In this release we fixed some parts of the library that didn’t properly dispose streams. These are quite important fixes and therefore we recommend everyone to update to the latest version of the library.

With the new release we are moving closer to our goal of getting rid of System.Drawing and GDI+ dependencies in Docotic.Pdf completely. Starting from version 7.3, the library no longer uses System.Drawing and GDI+ when resizing images, detecting which parts of text are invisible, or processing certain soft mask images. Also, we marked some methods, constructors, and operators that depend on System.Drawing types obsolete. For any now obsolete entity the library provides an other way to achieve the same.

Docotic.Pdf 7.3 can be used from Blazor and from HoloLens projects. After some changes from our side, the corresponding tools can properly process the library.

This release also contains bug fixes for text extraction and drawing (including drawing with some tricky CJK fonts).
