What is new in this release?

We are pleased to announce the new release of Aspose.Diagram for .NET 4.3.0 .  Under the hood, the Aspose.Diagram API now supports importing a bitmap image as a Microsoft Visio shape. This is something our users have asked for in our forums. There are many ways to glue shapes in the container, we’ve covered the basics of handling glue. Developers can now glue shapes in the container by passing connection name parameters. Previously, it was only possible by connection IDs. The new release of the Aspose.Diagram API has now made it very easy: just pass the exact connection name.  Developers can use either the connection IDs or name by using either the Page.GlueShapesInContainer or Page.GlueShapesInContainerByID methods. You can find the details of this feature in the documentation help topic: Glue Shapes inside the Container. This feature is useful primarily if we have added the new shapes and saved them to a source Microsoft Visio diagram. It helps developers to add a master to diagram from source diagram.  We have added a new overloaded Diagram.AddShape method. It takes a master name and Diagram classes object (the object that represents a Visio drawing). Please find details of this feature in the documentation help topic: Add Master from the Stencil of Shapes. This new version brings fixes to reported bugs, error messages and includes various other enhancements. Here is the list of important enhancements and bugs fixed in the new version.
