We have done tremendous work on the underlying framework, even if nothing visible to the user emerges
in the 3.0.1 release
Basically, we have ripped out the tightly integrated FreeImage library
, which was in charge of image decoding and encoding. For some obscure reasons, we never managed to get a 100% stable application when lots of images were involved, probably because of some imperfect error handling code in FreeImage (or one of its components) when memory becomes a scarce resource.
We now switched to the imaging engine provided by Microsoft with WPF and the .NET 3.5 framework. Our tests have shown that the new image engine is very stable. Some file formats are no longer supported, such as TIFF files with four channel CMYK color and an additional alpha channel.
We also reworked the code involved when generating ICO files from Creative Docs .NET documents. A few users complained that this was a frequent cause of crashes. This should no longer be the case.
In any case, please let us know if your experience with Creative Docs .NET has improved or not (as always, e-mail to bugs at creativedocs.net).
