NICKENICH, Germany (June 24th, 2014) – Monkeybread Software releases
version 14.2 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 Real Studio development environment with 2,000 classes
featuring over 52,000 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 14.2 update:
The new CoreText classes in our plugins cover the whole CoreText framework
from Apple for working with fonts and rendering text with attributes. The
older ATS classes are now deprecated and we suggest if you need such
functions, you should move soon to the new classes.
For Windows you can use WebKit as renderer for a htmlviewer. This uses
Chromium internally and with our new ChromiumBrowserMBS and
ChromiumFrameMBS classes we can provide additional methods. You can get the
text of the current page, the URL or the image. And of course the usual
methods like going forward or backwards in history.
For Mac OS X we added new classes for CoreFoundation, CoreGraphics and
Cocoa frameworks: CFMutableAttributedStringMBS, CFRangeMBS, CGFontMBS and
NSAlertMBS. The new NSServiceProviderMBS class can help providing services
in Cocoa applications.
Our new AUPlayerMBS class allows you to play audio on Mac OS X with various
parameters. This includes pitch, rate, pan and equalizer. Audio can loop
and you can select the output device.
Our SQL Plugin got improvements. The SQLDatabaseMBS and SQLConnectionMBS
classes have now a Scrollable property. SQLNumericMBS class got
improvements with new shared methods for various number types.
The Barcode generator can now also create SVG or postscript files. For
Windows HTMLViewer with Internet Explorer we can now zoom the content.
As part of this update we also updated a couple of used libraries including
CURL, GraphicsMagick, LCMS2, DynaPDF and OpenSSL. The Nikon plugin now
works with newer SDK versions for newer camera models.
See release notes for a complete list of changes:
The plug-ins require Xojo or 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 Xojo (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

that year, you can update your license to cover an additional year.
