    Hello Christian,

    first, thank you for the Update. :)

    I think i use the HelpBookMBS Methods in one of my Projects. Have they been replaced or just removed?

    Well, it's old Carbon API.
    Please see NSHelpManagerMBS class or NSApplicationMBS showHelp method.

    @Tim J Thank you!

    Please verify wether it works on the next crash. And please support my feedback case to get the runtime with function names, too: Feedback Case #54520

    @ChristianSchmitz Fixed year for CURLSFileInfoMBS being off by one sometimes.

    Tested with Pr6 the issue is still there. (Xojo 2018 r4 (macOS Mojave), Windows 10 64bit)

    @ChristianSchmitz That screenshot looks right with same date in two notations.

    Please excuse me, but i do not understand it. 13.12.2019 and 13.12.2018 are not equal. :)

  14. And why don't you send an e-mail to your customers instead of using the Xojo forum to advertise your products? Products which are outrageously expensive, shall I say!

    Well, first thanks for your comment.
    We do indeed email our customers for each new release. As 19.0 will be released next week, everyone can expect an email by than.
    This thread is to keep forum members informed about the development. If you are not interested in a forum thread, you can use "Ignore conversation" in the controls menu above.

    And if you are developing professional in Xojo, you will quickly learn what your time is worth. The price for the plugin should be small relative to the time you can save by using them.

    +1 to that.
    None of them are essential - they usually wrap API calls and obscure systems in ways that let you make simpler function calls.
    But they saved me a lot of work over the years.

    @Stéphane ;Mons why don't you send an e-mail to your customers instead of using the Xojo forum

    This is the Add-On category. Its whole reason for existence is for news and discussion about products that work with Xojo that aren't made by Xojo. This is exactly the right place for these things.

  18. @ChristianSchmitz, @Jeff T, @Seth O — To be honest, I have nothing against making money around Xojo but I really would prefer not getting some "buy the MBS plugins" campaign all the time, especially without the actual price being adverted!

    @Stéphane ;Mons
    Seth Ober is absolutely right.
    This is the Add-Ons Category.

    If you are not interested, please do following:

    • Go to the main page of this forum
    • Click on the icon at the left top (3 dots and 3 lines)
    • Scroll down until you see the rectangle with the text Add-Ons in it
    • Click on the gear at the right side
    • Select 'Hide'
    • Done

    Now you will never be bothered again with all the news/update information about third party add-ons.
    Most of the other forum members that use third party add-ons are usually very happy with this news/update information.
