RAD PDF 3.27 Released

Today, Red Software releases RAD PDF 3.27, the newest version of the PDF reader, PDF annotator, PDF editor, PDF form filler, PDF form designer, PDF signer, and more for ASP.NET (including .NET Core, .NET 5, & .NET 6).

This release includes improved language support for languages which require complex text layout or scripts, like Arabic, Thai, Devanagari, Lao, and others. The new UseUniscribe property allows RAD PDF to use Microsoft's Uniscribe to assist in adding new fields and text which have connected characters or other complex font features required by the language. (This feature is only available when running RAD PDF on Windows.)

The new PdfAnnotation.Flatten and PdfField.Flatten properties allow for individual annotations and form fields to be flattened when saving a PDF. This allows developers to more easily implement custom workflows where certain elements of a PDF should be "burned in" or flattened.

Additionally, this version enhances server efficiency with "empty" documents, improves the client-side PDF rendering engine, allows Lite Document sessions to be updated, and fixes a number of important bugs.

This update is available free of charge to customers with an active Maintenance Plan.

RAD PDF 3.26 Released

Red Software is excited to release RAD PDF 3.26, the ASP.NET / ASP.NET Core / ASP.NET 5 / ASP.NET 6 Web Control for reading, printing, editing, filling, signing, and more with PDF files in almost any web browser!

This latest version adds support for .NET 6 and ASP.NET 6's new Program.cs conventions.

Additionally, form fields with numeric formats are now applied (and their appearance streams fully generated) when saving or printing. See our new example which uses PDF form field formatting and calcuations.

Also, a new FlattenInput property has been added to the PdfWebControl, allowing input PDF forms and annotations to be flattened before being loaded in RAD PDF.

This update is available free of charge to customers with an active Maintenance Plan.

RAD PDF 3.24 Released

Red Software is happy to announce RAD PDF 3.24, the ASP.NET / ASP.NET 5 / ASP.NET Core Web Control for PDF editing, PDF form filling, PDF signing, PDF viewing, and more! This release includes a new date picker, rendering improvements, and a few minor bug fixes.

With the added date picker, date form fields in RAD PDF will now display month names and abbreviations when using mmm (3 letter abbreviation) / mmmm (full name) in date format strings. These can be set in RAD PDF's resource files, allowing this feature to be localized as well.

This update is available free of charge to customers with an active Maintenance Plan.
