Long time, no talk.
But some few days ago we’ve released the annual new major-versions of GdPicture.NET and DocuVieware: GdPicture.NET is now at version 12 while ‘junior’ DocuVieware turned to version 2.0.
Want to take a look?
To start with, our universal HTML5 Viewer and document-management kit DocuVieware 2.0 now supports the .docx file format, besides the already existing about hundred of them formats.
It is our own implementation of Microsoft Word OpenXML which means you don’t need any external plugin.
Other Office formats such as .xlsx and .pptx are on their way and they will be available soon.
Go to the Gallery demo on our live demos website to see how DocuVieware 2.0 renders and handles .docx files: you can either use our demo file (left panel, scroll down for OpenXMLWord.docx document) or load your own .docx documents using, for example, the Annotations demo then add annotations or make searches to find words within your .docx files.
Another new feature DocuVieware 2.0 comes with is TWAIN acquisition support for all modern browsers running on top of any Windows OS later than Vista (Vista being included on the list).
Yes, you got it, paper documents can be scanned directly from- and into DocuVieware 2.0.
Of course, newly acquired image(s) can form a new document or can be added as new page(s) to an already existing document, which you can save in the PDF/A-1b archiving format standard for long-term preservation.
But why read about all that when you can see for yourself how everything works?
Go to our TWAIN acquisition live demo; you will be prompted to download and install a tiny piece of software which is meant to connect to your TWAIN drivers.
Just a one-time thing to do as for all next times this small software will silently start when Windows starts.
Not much of a “zero-footprint” for that feature, we must admit that, but there’s no other way to do it so far (and all other vendors do the same, if this brings you back to the right mood).
