# Changes from version

## Breaking changes
- GcPdf v2 (builds 2.x.x.x) requires a new license key as the previous v1 key will not work. This is a FREE upgrade for customers who purchased GcPdf v1 license - please contact sales to receive a new license key at
- An evaluation license key now allows to use the product for 30 days without any limitations. Contact to request your key.
- Type of property GcPdfDocument.CompressionLevel changed from int to standard System.IO.Compression.CompressionLevel enum.
- CompressionLevel.NoCompression corresponds to old compression level 0, Fastest to 1, Optimal to 6.
- Type of property ViewerPreferences.DisplayDocTitle changed from bool to bool?, it is written to PDF stream if it is not null.

## Bug fixes
- GcPdfDocument could not process encrypted signed files.
- Disabled bold font emulation for semi-bold fonts.

## New features and improvements
- Added GcPdfDocument.MergeWithDocument(GcPdfDocument sourceDoc, MergeDocumentOptions options) method. Use this method to combine pages from different PDF documents.
- Added constructor FormXObject(GcPdfDocument doc, Page page). It allows to insert pages from a PDF document into another document as images, and allows to duplicate a page reusing page resources.
- The new method GcPdfGraphics.DrawForm(FormXObject, ...) allows to draw FormXObject on GcPdfGraphics with full support for positioning, scaling and transformations.
- Added property Metadata.PdfUa which allows to set the supported version of PDF/UA.
- Added IPdfImage.ImageMask property. Indicates whether the image is defined as a stencil mask for painting in the current color.
- Added support of AES-256 encryption as specified in Adobe® Supplement to the ISO 32000. To specify 256 bit encryption use the StandardSecurityHandlerRev5 class. Note that StandardSecurityHandlerRev5 is derived from StandardSecurityHandlerRev4 but its EncryptionAlgorithm and KeyLength can be AES and 256 respectively; this limitation comes from the PDF specification.
- Added new action type: ActionHide, hides or shows one or more annotations on the screen by setting or clearing their Hidden flags
- Added ActionBase.Next property, allows to set the next ActionBase or sequence of actions to be performed after this action.
- Added property Page.AnnotationsTabsOrder.
- Added GcPdfDocument.GetImages(...) and Page.GetImages(...)  methods, allowing to enumerate and retrieve images from the whole document or from a specific page respectively.
- Added GcPdfDocument.EmbeddedFiles property, which allows to specify document level file attachments.
- Added properties CreationDate, ModificationDate, CheckSum, Size to the EmbeddedFileStream class.
