It is sort of maintenance release where several issues related to various API functionality have been fixed. The previous version of the API had issues in recalculations with certain project data fields such as Actual Finish date, project start date and summary task fields in specific user scenarios. This release fixes such issues, resulting in improved project data recalculations. This release also fixes issues related to project data conversion to PDF and image formats.

What’s new in this release?

Aspose team is pleased to announce the new release of Aspose.Tasks for .NET 17.8.0. This month’s release provides support for working with rate scale information in post 2013 MPP file format. It also fixes several bugs that were reported with previous version of the API. Aspose.Tasks for .NET already supported reading/writing rate scale information of resource assignment for MPP 2013 and below versions. With this release, the API now supports reading and writing rate scale data for MSP 2013 and above MPP file formats. Working with loading project data from Microsoft Project Data was supported in one of the earlier versions of API. This, however, had issues with the update of Microsoft Project Database versions update and the functionality was broken. Aspose team is glad to share that this issue has been fixed now. Users can now load Project data from Project database using this latest version of the API. This release includes plenty of new features as listed below

  • Add support of RateScale reading/writing for MSP 2013+
