NICKENICH, Germany (February 4th, 2014) – Monkeybread Software releases
version 14.0 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 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 14.0 update:
Our new SSH plugin allows you to remotely login to a computer. For the
connection you can let the plugin connect a socket or pass an already
connected TCPSocket to the plugin. This plugin is supported on Mac OS X,
Windows and Linux and allows better integration into your app than running
ssh via shell class.
For Cocoa we added a new NSButtonCellMBS class. For various control classes
we got new events like TextDidBeginEditing, TextDidEndEditing and
TextDidChange. Our OpenDialogMBS class now has a Cocoa implementation and
for OverlayMBS class the WindowHidden and WindowShown events work now on
We updated our AVFoundation plugin for Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks. This adds
more than 400 new functions and 18 new classes. For the events, we now can
pass variant tags everywhere. This way you can pass context information to
the events. With AVFoundationMBS.WriteCGImageToFile method you can save
images in background for even better performance extracting frames from a
The SQL Plugin now has be updated to use properties instead of methods, so
you see more values in debugger. The new fields and parameters dictionaries
in the SQLCommandMBS class allow you to see parameter and field values in
the debugger. If you set our new RaiseExceptions property to false, you
will not see SQLErrorException, but you can check the Error properties.
For Linux we added support for the window transparency functions. The
GTKWindowMBS class can now be used to assign a new Icon to a window. Also
we fixed some linker issues on Linux with plugins and no longer optimize
away stack frames for better crash reports.
The PictureMBS class now handles 16bit grayscale images for some
operations. The new InputData property in CURL classes allows providing
data for upload without using Read event. The GetVariantArrayMBS function
allows casting any array of objects to an array of variants. With
CallDelegateOnMainThreadMBS method you can run methods on the main thread
from any other thread. The VerifyEmailMBS function can check emails for
syntax and query if the domain has a valid mailbox server. Finally the
SignalHandlerMBS class can set a flag and ignore signals, so you can handle
them later, e.g. catch Control-C in a console app and gracefully exit your
DynaPDF has been updated to version 184.108.40.206 and can now highlight text
with ignoring case and accents. LibXL is updated to version 3.5.4 and the
XMP Toolkit to version 5.5.

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.
