Release Notes

# Changes from version

## Changed
- Some PDF generators render the same text multiple times at nearly the same position to emulate bold text, now GcPdf handles such cases more effectively when building the text map.
- Now property SignatureField.Value is writable, this allows to remove an existing signature.

## Fixed
- The internal document signature flags are now correctly updated when adding or removing signature fields.
- Method GcPdfDocument.GetText() could fail with certain PDF files. (DOC-1203)
- NotImplementedException occurred when enumerating the ThreadArticleBeadCollection. (DOC-1161)
- StackOverflow exception occurred in rare cases when loading certain PDF files. (DOC-1263)

## Added
- Added the ability to save PDFs as images, see GcPdfDocument and Page methods SaveAsBmp(), SaveAsGif(), SaveAsJpeg(), SaveAsPng(), SaveAsTiff().
- Added the ability to render PDF pages to GcGraphics (e.g. image graphics), see Page methods Draw() and DrawAnnotations().
- Added support for export of form data to FDF, XFDF and XML formats, see GcPdfDocument methods ExportFormDataToFDF(), ExportFormDataToXFDF(), ExportFormDataToXML().
- Added support for import of form data from FDF, XFDF and XML formats, see GcPdfDocument methods ImportFormDataFromFDF(), ImportFormDataFromXFDF(), ImportFormDataFromXML().
