GroupDocs.Metadata for .NET It gives us immense pleasure to announce the release of version 17.9.0 of the GroupDocs.Metadata for .NET API. The latest release comes up with a number of new features along with an enhancement and a bug fix. In addition to the tags the API already supports, the API also supports reading APEv2 tags in Mp3 files. Furthermore, the API also allows reading metadata of OpenDocument Spreadsheet files(ODS format) starting from version 17.9.0. The API has also added features like reading SRational Tiff tags in Jpeg and Tiff images etc. Moreover, we have tried to improve the metadata extraction API’s functionality by improving the export process of files with larger objects and fixing a bug related to updating EXIF tags. We therefore recommend you to download or update your applications to use the latest version of the API for a better and smoother experience.

GroupDocs.Metadata for .NET API - Enhancements

In several cases the metadata value of a specific key may be too large (more than 32 KBytes). Previous versions did not handle such cases so a user might get some kind of exception while trying the export process. We are glad to announce that the API has now improved the method of export process and allows to:

  • Prevent the crash during export process in case of converting large objects to Excel or CSV

Version 17.9.0 of the Metadata Extraction API - Bug  Fixes

We realized that several EXIF tags were not found after updating the EXIF property of a Jpeg image. We have fixed this bug in this release and a user can now update the EXIF property of an image without losing any existing tags.
