Added feature to support REVNUM and INFO Fields

We have added FieldInfo and FieldRevNum classes in Aspose.Wrods v16.12.0 to support REVNUM and INFO fields.

Added new property ImageSaveOptions.GraphicsQualityOptions to Save fine-tuned Image

We have added ImageSaveOptions.GraphicsQualityOptions property in Aspose.Wrods v16.12.0. This property allows to specify rendering mode and quality for the Graphics object. Use this property to override the Graphics settings provided by Aspose.Words engine by default. It will take effect only when a document is being saved to an image-like format.

Support of the “people” part (Word 2013 feature)

We have included the roundtrip support of the People part (OOXML format) in Aspose.Words v16.12.0. This part contains contact information about each person who has authored a comment or revision in the current document: identity provider (none, Active Directory or Windows Live ID) and user ID. Using this information MS Word can show additional information about contact.
