# Changes from version

## Fixed
- Exception occurred when the SignatureLockedFields(SignatureLockedFieldsType, IEnumerable) constructor was used. (DOC-967)
- Appearance streams were generated incorrectly for acroform fields in certain scenario. (DOC-982)
- Text was rendered on GcPdfGraphics incorrectly if FontSizeInGraphicUnits was true and GcPdfGraphics.Resolution was not 72. (DOC-981)

## Changed
- Removed AnnotationBase.DefaultAppearanceString. Added WidgetAnnotation.DefaultAppearanceString and FreeTextAnnotation.DefaultAppearanceString, use these instead.
- The GcPdfDocument.PdfACompliant property is now obsolete (use Metadata.PdfA and GcPdfDocument.PdfAConformanceLevel instead).

## Added
- Added static property ICMapProvider GcPdfDocument.CMapProvider. It allows to specify an external object to be used by GcPdfDocument to request predefined CMaps that do not exist in GrapeCity.Documents.Pdf.
- Added new package GrapeCity.Documents.Pdf.Resources containing optional resources that can be used by GrapeCity.Documents.Pdf. Currently it contains additional CMaps that can be specified via ICMapProvider.
- Added properties TextField.RichTextValue, TextField.DefaultStyleString. These properties allow to set the value of a field as rich formatted string (see PDF spec for more details). Note that GcPdf does not automatically generate appearance streams for RTF text fields.
- Added AssociatedFiles property to Page, GcPdfDocument, StructElement and AnnotationBase objects. It allows to associate a list of embedded files with an object. This property can be used to generate PDF/A-3x compliant documents containing embedded files.
- Added Metadata.PdfA and GcPdfDocument.PdfAConformanceLevel properties that allow to set PDF/A conformance level (GcPdfDocument.PdfAConformanceLevel is just a wrapper around the Metadata.PdfA property).
- Added Metadata.CreatorTool property (the meaning is similar to DocumentInfo.Creator).
- Added support of sound annotations, see the SoundAnnotation class.
- Added GcPdfGraphics.SoftMask property. It allows to use a FormXObject as a drawing mask.
- Added Page.TransitionEffect and Page.TransitionDuration properties that allow to define a page's behavior in presentation mode (see TransitionEffect object).
- Added GcPdfDocument.ArticleThreads list. It allows to define article threads in a document (see ArticleThread and ArticleBead classes).
- Added ITextMap Page.GetTextMap() method. It allows to get a page's text map that can be used for hit testing, retrieving the list of text fragments on the page etc. (see classes ITextMap, ITextLine, ITextChar etc.).
- Added GcPdfDocument.PageLabelingRanges property. It allows to specify a dictionary of PageLabelingRange objects that define labels for the document's pages.
