SOLID FRAMEWORK 10.0.11064

This release includes

  • further improvements in handling of Non Standard Encoded (NSE) files.
  • removal of unnecessary libraries in the Linux version of the framework

Solid Framework 10.0.11034

The  build includes a bug fix to support non-ASCII characters when exporting to RTF on macOS.

SOLID FRAMEWORK 10.0.11024

The latest public release of Solid Framework SDK is now available for download from the developer portal at www.solidframework.net. This is version 10.0.11024.

The main features in this build are:

  • A small number of PDFs contained images that were corrupt. These files gave warnings when viewed in multiple PDF readers, and crashed Solid Framework.  These PDFs can now be converted.
  • Further Improvements in Table Detection.

SOLID FRAMEWORK 10.0.10278

The latest public release of Solid Framework SDK is now available for download from the developer portal at www.solidframework.net. This is version 10.0.10278.

Solid Framework 10.0.10158

The latest public release of Solid Framework SDK is now available for download from the developer portal at www.solidframework.net. This is version 10.0.10158.

The main features in this build are:

Support For Exporting 16 Digit Numbers to Excel

Excel only supports 15 significant digits. As a result longer numbers were being rounded following reconstruction of a spreadsheet from a PDF.

 

In the example below, the number in the PDF was 2180715866372664

 

In 10054 the number is silently rounded which results in the incorrect number being displayed.

In 10158 the number is treated as text so that the displayed value is correct.

Other changes

Add Support for Fonts Database File when Converting with a JobProcessor

Solid Framework has supported the use of a database of font metrics since 10.0.9182, which allows it to use fonts during the reconstruction process that are not installed on the machine.

This mechanism was previously only available for the “Converter” classes. It is now also available when using “JobEnvelopes” with a “JobProcessor”.

Allow Fonts Database File to be Reloaded

It is now possible to change which fonts database file is used without restarting the converter process. In previous versions of Solid Framework attempting to do so would be silently ignored.

 

Breaking Changes

Some SolidFramework.Platform functions no longer return a Boolean

This affects:

  • SetAppDataDirectory
  • SetCMapDirectory
  • SetColorProfileDirectory
  • SetFontDirectory
  • SetFontsDataBaseFile

 

Platform.SetFontsDataBaseFile can now throw exceptions

The main scenario where this is likely to occur is if the specified FontsDataBaseFile does not exist.

Solid Framework 10.0.10054

The latest public release of Solid Framework SDK is now available for download from the developer portal at www.solidframework.net. This is version 10.0.10054.

 

This version includes:

  • the ability to better convert some PDFs that have incorrectly specified shading
  • improved consistency of conversion to PowerPoint whether the machine is  32 bit or 64 bit
  • support for soft-hyphen detection when converting to Word (although this option is disabled by default to retain existing behaviour)

This Windows version of the SDK has been compiled using the Windows 10 SDK. This may require additional deployment steps on Windows 7 and earlier version of the Windows Operating System.
