Optimizing, optimizing, optimizing....
Spend most of the week swimming with the shark, Apple's great code profiling tool.
Profiling is a humbling experience for a developer - where big ego's, and long runtimes, slowly, but decisively shrink to it's razor sharp essence.
Have a nice weekend!
NiXPS SDK v2.6.6 released!
We have released NiXPS SDK v2.6.6 today.
This is a maintenance update, free for all current customers who are under maintenance.
We roll out some optimizations in reading, writing and converting very large documents (+1000 pages).
You should see a significant speed boost, and reduced memory usage, when handling these type of files.
The XPS document outline (table of contents) is now also optionally converted into a PDF document outline.
And we have fixed a few minor bugs.
Again a lot of fixes and optimizations were the result of issues reported by our customers.
Your continued feedback allows us to further improve our software and provide a field tested, high quality SDK.
Thank you very much!
