Public API and Backward Incompatible Changes

  1. Comparison of types of footnotes refers to comparison of styles, besides, this type of change is difficult to display in the text. Therefore these changes are marked on the principle of blank lines or pictures in the document (using comments). For clarity comparison of footnote types, you could use the following code snippet:
using (Comparer comparer = new Comparer(sourcePath))
    CompareOptions options = new CompareOptions()
		DetectStyleChanges = true,
		DetalisationLevel = DetalisationLevel.High
    comparer.Compare(resultPath, options);
  1. Updated documentation about obtaining source and target texts, which can be found here.
