# Changes from version

## Breaking changes
- In previous versions, RadioButtonField was always rendered as a circle (with a point inside if checked). Now the look is determined in the same way as for CheckBoxField, see WidgetAnnotation.Border and WidgetAnnotation.CheckStyle.

## Fixed
- WatermarkAnnotation is not printed when saving PDF as image. (DOC-1697)
- Exception occurs when building text maps for certain PDFs. (DOC-1696)
- When creating a PDF with radio buttons, setting FieldFlags.RadiosInUnison to false is ignored. (DOC-1702)
- Incorrect embedding of a subset of IPAmj Mincho font. (DOC-1693)
- Errors when processing certain PDF files. (DOC-1567, DOC-1578, DOC-1622, DOC-1623, DOC-1642, DOC-1687)
- Errors when saving some PDF files to images. (DOC-1618, DOC-1642, DOC-1652, DOC-1661, DOC-1662)
- Method Page.Draw() works incorrectly if the destination graphics has a non-identity transform. (DOC-1584)

## Changed
- Improved handling of broken PDF files. Now GcPdf will try to ignore errors in PDF content if possible. (DOC-1610, DOC-1643)

## Added
- Added support for applying redact annotations, see GcPdfDocument.Redact() method overloads.
- Added boolean property SaveAsImageOptions.IgnoreErrors (true by default).
- Added optional boolean parameter ignoreErrors to Page.Draw() and Page.DrawAnnotations() methods.
- Added support for JPEG2000 images in PDF when saving PDF as image. (DOC-1474, DOC-1694)
- Added WidgetAnnotation.CheckStyle property. It specifies the style of check mark used if the WidgetAnnotation is linked to CheckBoxField or RadioButtonField.
- Added RadioButtonField.AddItem() method. Creates and adds the WidgetAnnotation to the Field.Widgets collection.
- Added the ability to add named actions and assign them to GcPdfDocument.OpenAction. (DOC-1634)
- Added boolean property SaveAsImageOptions.Print. It specifies whether an image is generated for printing. Visibility of PDF elements can depend on whether a PDF is previewed or printed, this property affects whether such elements are rendered.
- Added an optional print parameter to the Page.Draw() method.
- Added SaveAsImageOptions.EnableFontHinting boolean property (true by default).
- Added Signature.Content property, the returned object can be used to fetch additional info from a signature's binary data, e.g. to get the X509Certificate that was used to generate the signature. (DOC-1355)
