We are looking for a component to work with AWS Lambda function and we can't use this one because DocumentModel.Save method doesn't support saving to a memory stream or stream object for PDF files. We can still move forward if this is to be added in next 2-3 months.

Hi, Note, this is our long-term goal and we are progressively working on it (a cross-platform PDF support). But I'm afraid this will require more time than a few months. Currently, I don't have any release date to share, but if I had to guess I would say that a year of development is a closer estimate than that. Regards, Mario

Please oh please, this is a big deal. All server-side development is .net core on linux going forward, we need to be able to generate GemBox PDFs using .net core on linux.

Hi, We plan to release cross-platform support for saving to PDF within a month. Regards, Mario

Hello there How is this feature coming along? Do you have any information, on the dependencies of your possible implementation? Like if there is a dependency to System.Drawing or similar for image processing? I've known this to cause issues in certain environments. Best Nicola

Hi, We're at the final stages of implementation, after which we'll conduct some testing. In short, we're hoping to release this feature before the end of February. Also, System.Drawing dependency will remain for image processing, at least for now. There should be no other dependency. Regards, Mario

Great ! I assume that means we can remove the framework reference to windows desktop ?

Hi, Yes, you can now remove the framework reference. See our updated ASP NET Core example: Regards, Mario
