I forgot to blog about version 2.0.13, available since end of February, and you did not miss anything really important, as it was mainly a bug fix release with a different implementation for the open file and save file dialogs.
Version 2.0.14 is the first version of the year which offers really new and interesting features:
A new Freehand Drawing Tool which can be used to draw smooth curves without having to be a Bézier guru:
When you start drawing, a circle appears which shows the distance you have to move to generate the next point on the curve. You can adjust the radius of this circle with the mouse wheel or the arrow keys.
When you are done, you can modify your curve with the Shaper Tool
We updated the PDF export filter in order to make Adobe Reader 8 happy with our text output. Somehow, Adobe Reader 8 expects to have a bounding box information for every character definition, which was optional before. Trying to providing a dummy value instead leads to a crash! But with Creative Docs .NET 2.0.14, this is no longer an issue.
A new ICO export filter, which relies on the IconLib library, found on the CodeProject (thanks Gustavo!).
Creative Docs .NET generates either a standard icon file with the expected 48x48, 32x32 and 16x16 sizes and 32-bit ARGB, 256 color and 16 color modes, or a Vista icon file which includes a high resolution version at 256x256 pixels.
For the German users, there is a little surprise: about half of the texts and messages have already been translated in German (thanks, Thomas!).
