GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET: enhanced caching options and added support for multiple instances with different root storage paths

In the latest version (2.13.0) of the GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET library released this month, we’ve implemented two new major features and over 40 minor improvements and bug fixes. The first major enhancement is the ability to cache PDF copies of original files. With this feature enabled, when setting the UsePdfPrinting and DownloadPdfFileIfPossible methods to true, the viewer doesn’t have to generate PDF copies of the original file upon each user request. Instead, the viewer checks whether the cached PDF copy of the document needs to be updated and, if not, uploads it to the client.

Another major improvement is the ability to use the viewer with an unlimited number of different independent root storage paths. For more details on the enhancements and bug fixes implemented in this release, as well as to download the latest version of the library, please go to this page.
