In GroupDocs.Editor for .NET we also added support of .NET 5.0 and dropped support of the .NET Framework 2.0

New features and improvements

Added .NET 5.0

GroupDocs.Editor for .NET version 22.9 is the first version where we’ve added support of .NET 5.0 runtime. But keep in mind, that we plan to drop .NET 5.0 in favor of .NET 6.0 in the next release, so .NET 5.0 should be considered as an intermediate step to the final .NET 6.0.

Removed .NET Framework 2.0

As it was mentioned in previous release notes, in this version we’ve dropped support of the .NET Framework 2.0. Now a GoupDocs.Editor for .NET supports 3 runtimes:

  1. .NET Framework 4.6.1
  2. .NET Standard 2.0
  3. .NET 5.0

If you need to use a .NET Framework version older than .NET Framework 4.6.1, please use the GroupDocs.Editor for .NET of a previous version - 22.7.

Epub support

In the GroupDocs.Editor for .NET version 22.9 we’ve added a full support of the ePub format - import, export, and auto-detection. Please read the corresponding article for details.

AZW3 and MHTML for export

In the version 22.9 we also added possibility to export documents in MHTML and AZW3 formats - now there are special save options for them.

Runtime version information

GroupDocs.Editor for .NET version 22.9 is the latest product, which is released for the platforms/runtimes .NET Framework 4.6.1, .NET Standard 2.0, and .NET 5.0.

In the next releases the support of .NET 5.0 will be dropped and support of .NET 6.0 will be added.
