Migrating to GroupDocs.Assembly 18.9 or Higher

Breaking changes

Removed members of DocumentAssembler were replaced with new ones. Removed members were not marked as obsolete (deprecated) before removal as usual, because this would complicate migration to new members of DocumentAssembler in Java. Thus, we have introduced a breaking change and customers need to migrate their code from removed members of DocumentAssembler to newly added ones when upgrading to the new version of GroupDocs.Assembly.

Since version 18.9, the Metered licensing security has been improved. Metered licensing is now applicable only in Java runtime version 8u101 or above. Please use other types of licensing if you are using v18.9 or greater in Java 7.
