Important changes and new Features

A fully reworked version of Aspose Cloud .NET SDK has been released. .NET Cloud SDK is a wrapper around REST API, allowing to process documents in C# quickly and easily, gaining all benefits of strong types and IDE highlights. The distribution is available at NuGet and source code at GitHub.

New SDK is fully supported and has the following advantages over the previous versions:

  • SDK is fully in sync with the API, all missing methods are added
  • Classes, methods, and properties have comments and are IDE-friendly
  • Better security
  • Usage of Request/Response classes to represent long lists of parameters. This allows for cleaner code and easier backward-compatibility going forward

The SDK is not backward compatible with the previous generation because of the last item. It should be straightforward to convert program code to using Request/Response objects, if you need any help on migration please ask at Free Support Forums.


This release introduces support for images in PDF to Word conversion. Some limitations still apply:

  • Semi-transparent images are not converted properly
  • Rotated images are not supported
  • Inline images (logical parts of text paragraphs) are converted as standalone images
