The InterpretedValue property has been added to the MetadataProperty class

The Descriptor property has been added to the MetadataProperty class

The Interpreter property has been added to the PropertyDescriptor class

Use cases

Obtain a full list of properties that provide an interpreted value

foreach (string file in Directory.GetFiles(Constants.InputPath))
{
    using (Metadata metadata = new Metadata(file))
    {
        if (metadata.FileFormat != FileFormat.Unknown && !metadata.GetDocumentInfo().IsEncrypted)
        {
            Console.WriteLine();
            Console.WriteLine(file);
            var properties = metadata.FindProperties(p => p.InterpretedValue != null);
            foreach (var property in properties)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(property.Name);
                Console.WriteLine(property.Value.RawValue);
                Console.WriteLine(property.InterpretedValue.RawValue);
            }
        }
    }
}

{
    var root = metadata.GetRootPackage<EmailRootPackage>();
    root.EmailPackage.Recipients = new string[] { "sample@aspose.com" };
    root.EmailPackage.CarbonCopyRecipients = new string[] { "sample@groupdocs.com" };
    root.EmailPackage.Subject = "RE: test subject";
