Public API and Backward Incompatible Changes

  1.  Adding Ellipse annotation.

    // minimal set of parameters
    AnnotationInfo ellipse = new AnnotationInfo();
    ellipse.setBox(new Rectangle(100, 100.0, 50, 50));
    ellipse.setType(AnnotationType.Ellipse);
    
  2. GetThumbnail method returns JPEG image stream.
    Assume we are getting pages from document:

    List<PageImage> pages = annotationHandler.getPages(document);
         
    // Then if we want get thumbnail we call GetThumbnail() method of PageImage item:
    for (int i = 0; i < pages.size(); i++) {
        InputStream stream = pages.get(i).getThumbnail();
        // do something with stream 
    }
         
    // Default image size was 300x180. If need specified image size, you can pass method parameters:
    // image thumbnails 100x100
    for (int i = 0; i < pages.size(); i++) {
        InputStream stream = pages.get(i).getThumbnail(100, 100);
        // do something with stream 
    }
    
  3. Added ability to set text watermarks angle.
    The same as adding Watermark annotation, but you should additionally set Watermark rotation angle by setting AnnotationInfo.Angle property (in degrees)

    AnnotationInfo annotation = new AnnotationInfo();
    annotation.setType(AnnotationType.Watermark);
    annotation.setAngle(45.0);
