For Windows we add classes to use the built-in PDF functionality from Microsoft. You can open PDF documents, query page count and sizes and render preview pictures of pages.
The GraphicsMagick functions got improved to now include WebP support. This includes reading and writing WebP files, so you can directly upload WebP functions from your CMS solution to your web server.
For MongoDB we have new functions to convert strings or MemoryBlocks to binary data for passing to the MongoDB database with DataToBinary function for efficient storage (without Base64 overhead). The NowUTC function in the MongoClientMBS class returns the current date in the format needed for MongoDB in JSON and Time can convert time stamps if needed.
We added new delegate based functionality to CURLSMultiMBS class to make it easier to do asynchronous transfers in the background. For this you can now use our shared instance and the AutoPerform property.
