MonkeyBread Software Releases the MBS Xojo plug-ins in version 13.5

NICKENICH, Germany (December 17th, 2013) – Monkeybread Software releases
version 13.5 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 1,900 classes
featuring over 50,000 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 13.5 update:

You can now add barcode support to your application. Using the zint library
we can create barcodes in a variety of formats. And using the zxing library
we can recognize barcodes in several formats automatically. Both work for
1D and 2D barcodes including EAN, UPC and QRCode. For drawing barcodes into
PDF, we have methods to draw them as vector graphics instead of bitmaps.

Our new OpenSSL encryption CipherMBS class allows you to encrypt the same
way as the openssl command line tool. This allows you to use the same
padding and encryption options as in other development environments. Same
for hashes with the new DigestMBS class.

For Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks we have new classes and methods. You can
read/write tags for folderitems, use the media library browser panel and
enjoy new Core Image filters. The NSTimerMBS and NSUserNotificationMBS
classes have been updated with new methods. The Core Location manager got
new events and for the in-app-purchases you can use the
SKReceiptRefreshRequestMBS class to test.

If you use HTMLViewer with WebKit on Linux applications, you can now use
our LinuxWebKit classes to control the webviewer. For example you can check
cookies or the history.

Use the iTunesLibraryMBS class to access the local iTunes library on Mac OS
X with iTunes 11. Also check access permissions using our ACL* classes on
Mac. Our plugins have been updated to relay less on QuickTime and other

If you use RTF data, please check our StyledText.RTFDataMBS property, an
improved replacement for the official RTFData property. Also you can now
directly use Apple’s RTF methods on Textarea on Mac OS X.

Use WindowsQOSMBS class on Windows for network flow control. For Windows we
also improved our Zip file handling, CURL SSL support and HTMLViewer

DynaPDF has been updated to version, SQLAPI to version 4.1.2 and
for EyeOne we now support i1Pro SDK 4.1.2. GraphicsMagick now includes JPEG
2000 support for all platforms.

The plug-ins require Real Studio 2006r4 or newer. Also required are 1 GB
hard disc space and around 512 MB of RAM in addition to the requirements
of Real Studio and your operation system itself. While all plug-in parts
compile on Mac OS X (universal), Linux and Windows, each function may
depend on additional system requirements to work successfully.
