What’s new in DocuVieware 3
DocuVieware 3.0 is the first major release of 2017 concomitant with the major release of the well-known document imaging SDK it is built upon: GdPicture.NET 14.0.
This new version brings several interesting features and quite a lot of core performance improvements. It now supports HTTPS TWAIN acquisition in every browser and it provides a new collaborative document review mechanism with a dedicated Snap-In.
Benefiting from the latest improvements in GdPicture.NET 14.0, a lot has been done in the inside of DocuVieware 3.0 at several levels to improve performance, memory footprint and, therefore, user experience.
The rendering quality of images has also been greatly improved for certain zoom levels and the PDF rendering time has been dramatically speeded up. Data transfer speed between server and client is faster.
Format support has also been improved and it is now possible to export a Microsoft Office OpenXML document to vector PDF. RAW images loading speed has also been improved and support for more than 80 new cameras has been added.
.NET Core Web Applications
.NET Framework 4.5 or 4.6 targeted .NET Core Web Applications are now supported in DocuVieware 3.0, an integration demo application is provided in addition to Webform and MVC Razor to show you how to proceed.
The annotations now benefit from two new CanEdit and CanDelete independent properties that enable or disable the corresponding action buttons to allow a finer handling of access rights.
The DocuVieware TWAIN Web Connector 2.0 now supports TWAIN acquisition over HTTPS so it does not break the security chain in SSL secured environments. All the security aspect is automatically taken care of during the installation process so it is totally transparent to both the user and developer.
New Comment feature and built-in Snap-In
In the continuity of the existing annotation system, a new annotations comment feature has been added to GdPicture.NET 14.0 to help integrators tackle the document review challenge.
DocuVieware 3.0 provides a new built-in rich user experience Snap-In that allows users to add, remove and edit comments.
The collaborative document review process is made easy for everyone thanks to comment statuses and discussion support allowing a user to answer to an existing content.
This comment feature is available for PDF and TIFF document but also for all the 100+ document formats DocuVieware supports.
Header and footer have been removed when printing in Chrome and Firefox.
DocuVieware 3 has a new intelligent toolbar system that (optionally) automatically adapts to a small screen in order to offer the best user experience on all devices.
User Interface localization
DocuVieware 3 supports several new languages: Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Slovenian, Korean and Hebrew. This increases the number of supported languages in DocuVieware 3.0 to 25.
