Nickenich, Germany (September 26th, 2017) – Monkeybread Software releases version
17.4 of the MBS plug-in for Xojo.

The MBS plug-in comprises a collection of several plug-in parts which extend
the Xojo (Real Studio) development environment with 2,300 classes featuring
over 60,000 documented functions. Our plugins support all three platforms Mac
OS X, Windows and Linux with all project types desktop, web and console
including 64-bit and ARM targets.

Some of the highlights on the 17.4 update:

For this release we reorganized a our plugins. We merged a few plugin parts,
so we have now have 39 instead of 65 plugins. We removed a couple of plugins
including QuickTime plugin and a few other deprecated plugin classes.

The new plugin comes with classes for SoundFile handling, so you can read
audio samples from various sound file formats. The new LibTag plugin classes
allow you to read metadata from various audio file formats.

For macOS 10.13 High Sierra, we added new Core ML classes to use machine
learning files and for example classify pictures. We also updated Core Image
filters and added new CoreImage barcode classes. For WKWebViewControlMBS you
can now take snapshots of the website.

If you like to use custom low level sockets, we added the RawSocketMBS class
for you, which can be used to send build custom socket classes to send various
protocols in your own data packets including custom headers.

On macOS you can now use CGEventTap to monitor low level events. We added
64-bit MapKit framework, so you can decide between Google maps and Apple maps
for your map views. NSSpellCheckerMBS and SFPasswordAssistantMBS classes are
updated to run on 64-bit.

If you use Linux, please enjoy GTK+ 3 in Xojo 2017r2. Our plugins will
dynamically load GTK library in version 2 or 3 depending on the Xojo version.

For Windows we added new picture methods to WindowsClipboardMBS class to
read/write DIB pictures. With DeleteTree and CopyTree methods on
RegistryKeyMBS you can much easier work on the windows registry. In Textarea
you can now strike through text beside doing super and subscript.

memory usage functions to SQLite3MBS class and a 128bit mode for our
RegistrationEngineMBS class.
