ImageMan.Net Version 3 Beta Testers Needed

4. March 2011 08:19

Spring is officially here and our developers have been busy all winter getting ready to release our ImageMan.Net Version 3.0 components and we are looking for a few good beta testers to help us make sure it’s the best release possible and to make sure we haven’t done anything stupid.

So what’s new in Version 3 ?

  • .Net 4.0 and .Net 2.0 components – No more hassles with app.config when using the existing components in a .Net 4.0 framework application
  • 64 Bit components – Native 64 bit components allow you deploy your applications as 32 or 64 bits.
  • Exif read and write support in the JpegEncoder and JpgDecoder classes including support for the GPS tags.
  • Enhancements to the PDFEncoder class when writing searchable PDF files. Search terms are now highlighted at the appropriate locations on the image.
  • Enhancements to the viewer and thumbnail controls provide even richer functionality.
  • Performance tweeks to the Encoders and Decoders to speed up image loading and saving.

So if you are interested in using this new code and providing us with feedback please let us know at and we’ll get you signed up. We anticipate releasing the beta in mid to late March.
