Support for FusionTime: No need to add FusionTime files in the templates because the FusionExport engine comes with the support for FusionTime as well.
Reduced build size: There were many external packages used in the FusionExport core. However, in this build, we have done the cleanup to ensure that FusionExport is as light as possible.
- Better handling of FusionCharts library: For those who have a partial license of the product, it was difficult to render charts. Fear not; this issue has been fixed.
20th January 2020
Announcement & notification from CLI: Starting v1.2.2, we will start showing any new product release in the command line itself, so that you are always equipped with the latest version of FusionExport.
Support for memory stream as output: You can now get exported output as a stream and work with it.
All the SDKs are updated with these new changes.
- Better Package Management: For better onboarding, we have changed the package structure to include examples and readme files.
- Dependency issues: In the previous release, we included all the dependencies in the build itself. However, it led to a few issues while executing FusionExport. We have resolved that issue.
28th August 2019
- No more External Dependencies: In v1.1.1, we made by allowing you to download dependencies during runtime. However, this created a huge backlash as many of our customers run FusionExport behind a firewall. Hence, with this minor release, we have reverted back the change.
8th August 2019
Supports for PDF header & footer: Behold, the most requested feature for FusionExport is here. Now you can add headers and footers without any hassle. Just mention them in the configurations and you are done!

13th March 2019
No more Cropping: While exporting sometimes your PDF file was not getting exported as you had hoped. It is not fixed by changing the logic for viewport handling.
Annotations work better now: Few users have reported issues while exporting with annotations. Guess what? It is now fixed.
- Support for Headers and Footers: Wait is now over, most requested feature of adding headers and footers is here!
27th February, 2019

Watermark for Trial Versions: Initially we used to give FusionExport without any restrictions. But not now!
No more infinite restarts: FusionExport used to create infinite instance of itself every-time there was an error. This release makes sure that FusionExport does not go infinity and beyond.
Dealing with Incomplete FusionCharts XT Suite: Although we know FusionCharts XT Suite is incredible. But sometimes people only use few modules of FusionCharts XT Suite. FusionExport used to break in such scenarios. We have fixed it so that you can embrace the minimalistic lifestyle.
