GroupDocs.Conversion for Java: convert common document types to HTML

We’re pleased to announce support for a new file format in GroupDocs.Conversion for Java version 1.2.0, released this month. Developers can now convert all file types supported by the library to HTML. These include PDF, Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Project, Outlook and many more. In the output you can either get a complete web page (HTML + CSS + images), or send converted resources (text, fonts, images, etc.) to streams.

In addition to this, we’ve also added support for Microsoft Word bookmarks and implemented the ability to convert and merge several files into a single PDF document. For more details on these new features, please see this article and download the latest version of GroupDocs.Conversion for Java from this page.

GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET: caching PDF copies of original documents

Last month we introduced two updates in GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET – the ability to cache PDF copies of original files and use an unlimited number of different independent root storage paths. These features proved to be valuable to our users and we decided to write a dedicated article providing more details on how you can benefit from them. In case you missed the article, you can find it here.
