ABCpdf 9 is a new version completely independent of the old. You can have both versions installed at the same time. When you want to take advantage of the new features, simply reference the new name.

Simply replace...

Set theDoc = Server.CreateObject("ABCpdf9.Doc")


Set theDoc = Server.CreateObject("ABCpdf10.Doc")




ABCpdf is fully backward compatible. Although extensive changes have been made to the core engine, we check that these changes produce results that are compatible with previous versions.

Layout is very similar, but a few layout issues have been addressed which means that the new - correct - layout may be slightly different from the old layout.

This release of ABCpdf is based on the .NET branch of development. The COM interface provided by the ABCpdf ASP version 6 has been maintained to provide a smooth upgrade transition and support for existing users.

The HtmlRender event of ABCpdf ASP has been omitted. However, if this feature is important to your code, or you feel there are other features of ABCpdf .NET that should be exposed to COM, then please do let us know.
