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 these soon.

4089 Implement paragraph borders and character run borders for both DocX and Word97.4099 Support for Nested tables in Word97 documents.

3807 Handle background colors for vertically merged table cells.

4090 Better support for floating tables and images.

1548 Link placement improved, especially for image links and wrapped links.

3807 Fixed StringIndexOutOfBoundsException in vertically merged table cells.
