It has already been announced in pre-release blog post of Aspose.Page API that it will be a merger of both Aspose.XPS and Aspose.EPS APIs. Well, Wait is over now. Aspose.Page has been rolled out and available to be used in .NET and Java Applications. It is loaded with the features set earlier offered by Aspose.EPS and Aspose.XPS. Since both Aspose.EPS and Aspose.XPS have been merged as one Aspose.Page API, they will be discontinued and removed from APIs’ catalog offered by Aspose. They will no longer be part of Aspose.Total package and no updates or revisions will going to be released for them.
You may use Aspose.Page for .NET/Java to work with both XPS and EPS documents. Using the API you can create, edit and save existing as well as new XPS documents. Furthermore, you can convert XPS and EPS documents into PDF and Images.
