MonkeyBread Software Releases the MBS Xojo plug-ins in version 14.1

NICKENICH, Germany (March 18th, 2014) – Monkeybread Software releases
version 14.1 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 Real Studio development environment with 2,000 classes
featuring over 51,000 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 14.1 update:

For Mac OS X we added MapKit classes using the open source MapKit
framework. While Apple offers a MapKit framework directly, it’s only
available for 64bit application. The MapKit framework we use here is
available for 32bit and 64bit and uses google maps internally. We can later
update the plugin to either use Google or Apple map service once Xojo
builds 64bit applications.

To list processes with details on Linux we added a LinuxProcessMBS class.
It can show you which processes are running and query the list of open

In order to support proxies better for network connections, we added new
classes: For Mac we have a CFProxyMBS class and for Windows a
WinHTTPClientMBS class. Both allow to query current system proxy settings
and help with detecting the auto config URLs and parsing the configuration

Our SQL Plugin got a couple of improvements. The SQLPreparedStatementMBS
class has been rewritten with new methods to bind parameters by name. You
can now decide to raise exceptions for errors in the SQLDatabaseMBS class.
The SQLDateTimeMBS class is now working better with existing date objects.

We also updated barcode plugin with color properties for barcode
generation, added more CoreImage functions and improved Cocoa file handle
and printing functions. DynaPDF has been updated to version,
LittleCMS to version 2.6.

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.

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
