Aspose.Slides for Java and a Special Holiday Offer

If you’ve been visiting recently you’ll know that we released Aspose.Slides for Java 3.0.0 last month. This is the first version of Aspose.Slides for Java that’s been autoported from Aspose.Slides for .NET. We, and many of our customers, are excited about this release because it brings a host of new features to our Java users: printing presentations, PPT to PPTX conversion and support for charts, to mention some. From now on, we’ll match each Aspose.Slides for .NET release with an Aspose.Slides for Java release. Our .NET and Java customers get the same features at the same time. It is a great step forward for our users and it’s great for us too: we only have one code base to maintain so we can focus on new features.

To celebrate this release, this newsletter is almost all about Aspose.Slides. But before we give you tips and tricks on how to work with Aspose.Slides, I want to introduce:

Migration Tip – Finding and Replacing Text with Aspose.Slides for .NET vs VSTO

Migration tip icon Sometimes, you might need to find text in a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation and replace it with a new string. Say, for example, that the name of a department changes, or a key member of staff is replaced. Instead of manually correcting every instance of a word or name, you can do it programmatically, saving time and effort. You can use VSTO but we recommend freeing yourself from Microsoft Automation and using Aspose.Slides for .NET instead. This tip compares the two techniques.
