GrapeCity Developer Solutions Announces Powerful New Release for Spread Products

PITTSBURGH, Dec. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- GrapeCity, a component solution provider in the Microsoft Visual Studio Partner Ecosystem and Visual Studio 2017 Sim-Ship Partner, today announced the Spread product line's new software release for Spread.NET 11 and SpreadJS 11. The new software versions feature important changes to the spreadsheet components, including improved performance and memory footprint, more functions than competing spreadsheet solutions, and a restructured licensing format for JavaScript apps.

Spread.NET 11 (formerly Spread Studio) can handle the most complex spreadsheets 80% faster and using just a fraction of the memory from prior versions. With more than 130 new calculation functions, the total number in Spread.NET 11 and SpreadJS 11 is now 462—more than any competitive product. The Spread.NET release has new support for array formulas, workbook protection support, cell validators and enhanced data validation, along with a new API with document properties to make your spreadsheet development safer, quicker, and even more intuitive. A new license for Spread.NET 11 now includes one full year of maintenance, which includes phone support and the next major software release. For more details, read the Spread.NET release blog:

The new SpreadJS 11's set of JavaScript libraries has been enhanced to solve even more enterprise spreadsheet requirements. A new license for SpreadJS 11 now includes one distribution license and one testing license with each new developer license. Customers won't have to purchase a separate distribution license when they're ready to deploy to a single domain, and they can stil purchase additional domains when they're ready to expand. 

On the feature side, in addition to the 130 additional functions, Spread.Sheets now includes charting support and can import and export native Excel files with charts. With Spread.Sheets, customers can make changes to those charts, and developers are given the tools to add and edit charts with the Spread Sheets Designer. New charts include column, bar, line, pie, doughnut, area, scatter, bubble, stock, and combination.

Customer-reported issues have also been addressed and several enhancements have been made, making SpreadJS the premier spreadsheet component on the market.

Enhancements include: the HitTest functionality is now supported at the workbook level; columns can be easily indented for tree structures; events have been added when sheets are moved; text cell types can now be vertically aligned in edit mode; and support for exporting to PDF files has been added. For a full list, please read the release blog:

"GrapeCity Spread 11 now has more functions than any other spreadsheet solution," said Jody Handley, Product Marketing Manager at GrapeCity. "With the improved performance in .NET, and the chart support in JavaScript, we continue to provide the best enterprise spreadsheet components available."

GrapeCity is also excited to announce a Spread.Services pack release due over the next few weeks. Spread.Services is available as an upgrade to SpreadJS, and the JSON support will allow SpreadJS customers to consume JSON data with the fastest API available. Stay tuned for additional updates.

Spread releases are available via a no-charge, 30-day trial. Online visitors may also access tutorials, forums, documentation, and videos as part of the GrapeCity experience. Please visit and choose your product.
