Aspose.Diagram for .NET logo We’re pleased to announce the new release version of Aspose.Diagram for .NET 5.6.0. It covers a new feature support, to update a particular Milestone content on the Timeline shape. We’re gradually incorporating advance feature operations and also fixing maintenance defects. We have also included many other formatting and Visio diagram export improvements.

Update Milestone Dates

It becomes an easy approach for users to capture and communicate project milestones with a timeline. In this regard, Aspose.Diagram has already added support to configure Visio Timeline shapes. From this release version, users will also be able to update a particular Milestone shape’s date. MilestoneHelper class allows to do so. Please refer to the following help topic: Refresh Milestones on the Timeline using MilestoneHelper class
