Public API and Backwards Incompatible Changes
Aspose.Slides.IPresentationInfo interface and PresentationInfo class have been added

Represent info about presentation.
Property bool IsEncrypted gets True if a presentation is encrypted, otherwise gets False.
Property LoadFormat LoadFormat gets type of a presentation.
Aspose.Slides.IShape.IsGrouped property had been added

The property Aspose.Slides.IShape.IsGrouped determines whether the shape is grouped.
Aspose.Slides.IShape.ParentGroup property had been added

he property Aspose.Slides.IShape.ParentGroup returns parent GroupShape object if shape is grouped. Otherwise returns null.
Aspose.Slides.IShapeCollection.AddGroupShape() method had been added

The method Aspose.Slides.IShapeCollection.AddGroupShape() creates a new GroupShape and adds it to the end of the collection.
GroupShape frame size and position will be fitted to content when new shape will be added into the GroupShape.
Aspose.Slides.IShapeCollection.Clear() method had been added

The method Aspose.Slides.IShapeCollection.Clear() removes all shapes from the collection.
Aspose.Slides.IShapeCollection.InsertGroupShape(int) method had been added

The method Aspose.Slides.IShapeCollection.InsertGroupShape(int) creates a new GroupShape and inserts it to the collection at the specified index.
GroupShape frame size and position will be fitted to content when new shape will be added into the GroupShape.
Methods IPresentationFactory.GetPresentationInfo(string file), IPresentatoinFactory.GetPresentationInfo(Stream stream) have been added

These methods allow to receive information about a presentaiton file/stream without full presentation loading.
Property IPresentationFactory PresentationFactory.Instance has been added

Allows using the factory functionality without instantiation.
Restrictions had been added for using undefined values for IShape.Frame

Code that attempts to assign undefined frame to IShape.Frame doesn't make sence in general case (particulary in case when parent GroupShape is multiple nested into other GroupShape-s). For example:
IShape shape = ...; shape.Frame = new ShapeFrame(float.NaN, float.NaN, float.NaN, float.NaN, NullableBool.NotDefined, NullableBool.NotDefined, float.NaN); or

slide.Shapes.AddAutoShape(ShapeType.RoundCornerRectangle, float.NaN, float.NaN, float.NaN, float.NaN);

Such code can lead to unclear situations. So restrictions had been added for using undefined values for IShape.Frame. Values of x, y, width, height, flipH, flipV and rotationAngle must be defined (not float.NaN or NullableBool.NotDefined). Example code above now throws ArgumentException exception.
This applies to these use cases:

IShape shape = ...;
shape.Frame = ...; // cannot be undefined

IShapeCollection shapes = ...;
// x, y, width, height parameters cannot be float.NaN:
{
   shapes.AddAudioFrameCD(...);
   shapes.AddAudioFrameEmbedded(...);
   shapes.AddAudioFrameLinked(...);
   shapes.AddAutoShape(...);
   shapes.AddChart(...);
   shapes.AddConnector(...);
   shapes.AddOleObjectFrame(...);
   shapes.AddPictureFrame(...);
   shapes.AddSmartArt(...);
   shapes.AddTable(...);
   shapes.AddVideoFrame(...);
   shapes.InsertAudioFrameEmbedded(...);
   shapes.InsertAudioFrameLinked(...);
   shapes.InsertAutoShape(...);
   shapes.InsertChart(...);
   shapes.InsertConnector(...);
   shapes.InsertOleObjectFrame(...);
   shapes.InsertPictureFrame(...);
   shapes.InsertTable(...);
   shapes.InsertVideoFrame(...);
}

But IShape.RawFrame frame properties can be undefined. This make sence when shape is linked to placeholder. Then undefined shape frame values is overridden from the parent placeholder shape. If there is no parent placeholder shape for that shape then that shape uses default values when it evaluates effective frame based on its IShape.RawFrame. Default values are 0 and NullableBool.False for x, y, width, height, flipH, flipV and rotationAngle. For example:

IShape shape = ...; // shape is linked to placeholder
shape.RawFrame = new ShapeFrame(float.NaN, float.NaN, 100, float.NaN, NullableBool.NotDefined, NullableBool.NotDefined, 0);
// now shape inherits x, y, height, flipH, flipV values form placeholder and overrides width=100 and rotationAngle=0.

Type and name of the Aspose.Slides.IShapeCollection.Parent property has been changed

Type of the Aspose.Slides.IShapeCollection.Parent property has been changed from ISlideComponent to new IGroupShape interface. IGroupShape interface is the descendant of the ISlideComponent so user code needs no adaptations.
Name of the Aspose.Slides.IShapeCollection.Parent property has been changed from Parent to ParentGroup.
Type of the Aspose.Slides.IShapeFrame.FlipH, .FlipV properties has been changed

Type of the Aspose.Slides.IShapeFrame.FlipH property has been changed from bool to NullableBool.
IShape.Frame property return effective instace of IShapeFrame (all of which properties have defined effective values).
IShape.RawFrame property return IShapeFrame instace of which each property can have undefined value (particularly FlipH or FlipV can have value NullableBool.NotDefined)
