LEAD Technologies has announced the release of a new, major update to LEADTOOLS Version 17.5.  This is a free upgrade, and is available to registered v17.5 users and annual maintenance customers of LEADTOOLS.

The new version delivers a variety of new features and improvements within the Document, Imaging, Medical, and Vector product lines.



LEAD introduces significant new features, improves the user-interface tools and accelerates the overall performance of the HTML5 toolkits for Document and Medical imaging that were released earlier this year.  Both image viewer controls received improvements to their ease of use, browser compatibility and image display quality.  In addition, a number of new features and enhancements were added to the Zero Footprint HTML5 DICOM Viewer as well as its customizable web application.


"The positive response and feedback we received when we first brought our HTML5 SDK to market was outstanding," stated Otis Goodwin, Manager of LEADTOOLS Developer Support.  "The great thing about HTML5 is that it is extremely extensible and our design takes into account that our customers will want us to add features quickly.  In just a few short months, we have been able to add significant new functionality to our HTML5 offerings, with many features being added based on inventive feature requests made by our early adopters."


In addition to the HTML5 modules, other technologies were also upgraded - including OCR, PDF, Barcode, DICOM, Medical Viewer, PACS, 3D, formats and more.  The technology in the LEADTOOLS Document Engine offers enhancements in speed, recognition accuracy, support of document formats and searchable text output quality.  The Medical Viewer Control was upgraded across all programming interfaces.  The Imaging and Vector engines also received updates that improve and extend their file format support.
