Black Ice Software is proud to announce the release of the Document Imaging SDK 12.84 with a set of brand new shape annotations; Arrow Left, Arrow Right, Arrow Top, and Arrow Bottom.

The new Arrow annotations provide a simpler implementation to help developers to focus on their application, rather than writing a large codebase for the annotations. The new Arrow annotations also come with easier usability for end-users.

In the new Annotation C++ Sample and the C# using ActiveX control sample, developers can see all the new annotations in action, and by using the online document of the Annotation SDK, developers can find all the functions needed to implement in their application.

The latest Document Imaging SDK comes with further improvements for the text and checkbox annotations. The improved checkbox annotations now can be created with a single click instead of dragging the mouse. The new text annotation comes with new features to let users change the background color of the text while editing.

Since the last newsletter, there were many significant improvements and many new features added. Please see the version history below.

The complete list of improvements in the latest Document Imaging includes the following:
