Version v2013R2 - August 16 2013
In this version, we improved a lot our Java Word to PDF conversion library internally. We no longer have 2 different sets of rendering code for the
2 distinct formats:
- Word 97-2003 (.doc)
- Word 2007-10 (.docx)
We implemented a common document object model for the 2
PDF converters. This allows more consistency in terms of features supported
among the 2 formats and makes it easier to add more features in the future.
The Word 97-2003 (.doc) converter was basically rebuilt to
use the other converter and we may have introduced a few regression bugs in the
process. We already have heard of 3, and will put a minor release to fix all

borders for both DocX and Word97.
4099 Support for Nested tables in Word97 documents.

vertically merged table cells.

values in the ctor.
