The service release fixes a bug in the PrintText method responsible for not properly handling "dingbat" fonts such as wingding.ttf and others.
The use of such fonts in previous versions would produce black boxes instead of characters.
The service release extends AspJpeg.NET's metadata extraction functonality to PNG images. Previously, EXIF, IPTC and XMP metadata could only be
obtained from JPEG images, but now the OpenInfo method can be passed PNG images as well.
For more information on metadata extraction, see Chapter 7 of this manual.
To facilitate the use of AspJpeg.NET under .NET Core, the component's dependency on the System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager assembly has been eliminated.
When the registration key is specified directly in the code via the objJpeg.RegKey property (as is the required practice under .NET Core),
there is no longer a need to reference System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager in the project file.
We are happy to announce that our native-.NET image management component is no longer confined to Windows servers.
AspJpeg.NET 18.104.22.16848 has been successfully tested on .NET Core 2.0+ on both Windows and Linux!
The latest service release fixes several problems that arose when the component was being tested in a Linux environment.
The service release fixes a serious bug in the PrintText method when the objImage.Canvas.Font.Underlined
property is set to true and objImage.Canvas.Font.Align property set to 1 (right) or 2 (center):
The service release also fixes a number of minor bugs in various modules.
This service release enables AspJpeg.NET to be used in a classic ASP environment as if it were an ASP component.
For more info, see the KB article PS121023186.
AspJpeg.NET 22.214.171.12412 has been officially released. It has been successfully tested in the .NET Core 2.0 environment.
A NuGet package for AspJpeg.NET is available for downloading here along with the regular installer application.
We are happy to announce the arrival of AspJpeg.NET, the .NET twin of AspJpeg, our classic-ASP image management component.
Feature-wise, AspJpeg.NET is almost completely identical to AspJpeg, but being a 100%-managed native .NET assembly, AspJpeg.NET does not
need to be registered on the server, just placed in the /Bin subdirectory of your .NET application.
There are a few minor differences between AspJpeg.NET and AspJpeg in terms of functionality and the object model.
Please see Section 1.3
of the User Manual for more information about that.
AspJpeg.NET is currently in beta. If you wish to test it, please download it and request
a free 30-day evaluation key. We are looking forward to your feedback.
In response to your numerous 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. 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.
The new version offers the following features and fixes:
Upgrading is free for registered users.
