What?s new in this release?

GroupDocs team is pleased to announce the new release of GroupDocs.Conversion for .NET 3.0.0. It includes a large variety of document formats. Document conversion was never so easy. The legacy 1.1.0 version of GroupDocs.Conversion for .NET supported less document formats and required some effort to use. The GroupDocs team reconsidered and revamped the whole architecture, simplified the API and introduced more document and image formats for conversion. This release includes plenty of new features as listed below


  • Over 50 document formats are supported for conversion
  • No dependency of Web.UI based classes.
  • Simplified API, requires less lines of code
  • Easy integration in your .NET apps by using a single DLL for all types of documents
  • Convert most common image formats to document formats
  • Fast conversion
  • Less coding effort

Newly added documentation pages and articles


Some new articles have now been added into GroupDocs.Conversion for .NET documentation that may guide users briefly how to perform document conversion.

Compare GroupDocs.Assembly for .NET with Windward for reporting and document generati

GroupDocs.Assembly for .NET was recently released with some new features like simplified API, more Microsoft Office and Open Office documents support, easier template syntax etc. We compared it with WindWard, which is a popular report generation engine. We are excited to announce that GroupDocs API excelled in the following areas.


  • Less coding effort, only 2-3 lines of code is required to generate a report.
  • Only one DLL is required, no need of Microsoft Office to be installed.
  • Database, JSON and XML data sources are supported in both, but custom .NET objects can be used only in GroupDocs.
  • Both GroupDocs and WindWard supports formulas and sequential data operations (filtering, ordering, grouping etc). With GroupDocs.Assembly, you can use type member invocation and built-in data relation functions.
  • GroupDocs.Assembly really excels in supported document types. WindWard supports only popular Microsoft Office documents, whereas GroupDocs.Assembly can work with most Microsoft Office and Open Office documents. Below is the supported documents list
  • Word processing documents: WindWard (DOCX, RTF, WordML). GroupDocs.Assembly (DOCX, DOCM, DOTX, DOTM, DOC, DOT, Flat OPC, RTF, WordML, ODT, OTT)
  • Spreadsheet documents: WindWard (XLSX). GroupDocs.Assembly (XLSX, XLSM, XLTX, XLTM, XLSB, XLS, XLT, SpreadsheetML, ODS)
  • Presentation documents: WindWard (PPTX), GroupDocs.Assembly (PPTX, PPTM, PPSX, PPSM, POTX, POTM, PPT, PPS, ODP)

Remove sensitive data from PDF, Office and image files with Outlook Metadata cleaner

Do you know that Office documents, PDF and images may contain confidential information like your name, company, subject, PC Name, tags, authors etc. All this information is part of metadata. When you attach a file with email, the metadata is also sent to the recipients.
Different tools exist for removing sensitive information from different type of files. For example Adobe Acrobat may be used to delete metadata from PDF documents. Similar tools exist for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, images etc.

If you different types of files in an email and want to remove the confidential data, you will need to use different tools for each of the file type. This may prove to be very non-productive. You might end up spending time on removing metadata from files, instead of focusing on the email itself!

  • Removes data from built-in and custom document properties

  • Excel files (XLS, XLSX)

  • Adobe PDF file
  • Images (JPG, JPEG, GIF, PNG)
