NICKENICH, Germany (July 24th, 2013) – Monkeybread Software releases
version 13.2 of the MBS plug-in for Xojo and Real Studio.
The MBS plug-in comprises a collection of several plug-in parts which
extend the Xojo development environment with 1,700 classes
featuring over 48,000 documented functions. Our plugins support all
three platforms Mac OS X, Windows and Linux with all project types
desktop, web and console.
Some of the highlights on the 13.2 update:
As you may know AVFoundation framework is now the preferred way for
applications on Mac OS X 10.7 and newer to do video editing. This
includes recording video and audio from various sources, loading
existing assets and creating new assets with audio and video content.
Powerful export and convert functions allow to transcode video and audio
data. And of course you can also play back audio and video and extract
images and audio samples. So if you want to enjoy those new functions,
you can migrate your existing code using QuickTime or QTKit to this new
framework. This new plugin has 80 new classes and over 1500 new
documented functions alone.
New Mac OS X classes for the Disk Arbitration Framework help with
mounting and unmounting disks. And you can use them to query information
about existing drives.
For Cocoa we add new classes and methods. For example the
SpinningProgressIndicatorMBS allows better progress indicators.
The SQL Plugin has been improved. The LastStatement property on the
SQLDatabaseMBS helps you now debugging your code by providing the last
issued statement string. Or new DB2MBS class gives some direct DB2
related commands And you now can use CommandType parameter on all the
functions which take SQL strings, so you can define if SQLAPI
preprocesses the SQL command or not. Also we improved stability on Web
Apps using our SQL Plugin and fixed a few bugs related to ODBC.
For our CURL Plugin we added a new Cancel property which helps to
properly stop threaded operations. Also we improved the automatic
collection of debug messages. We do have to inform you that we dropped
PPC support for the CURL plugin due to some unfixable bugs.
We updated DynaPDF library to 220.127.116.11 and added new table examples.
Our XL plugin now uses libXL version 3.5.3 to benefit from latest
changes there. For LCMS2 reuse now the 2.5 release and our VLC plugin
has been updated to 2.0.7. For SQL Functions we now use SQLAPI 4.1.1.
Plugin licenses are available for components or for the complete
collection. Starting at 20 Euro ($29 USD) for one component. The
complete package costs 199 Euro ($299 USD) for commercial usage. If you
