MonkeyBread Software Releases the MBS Xojo / Real Studio plug-ins in version 14.3

NICKENICH, Germany (September 16th, 2014) – Monkeybread Software releases
version 14.3 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 2,100 classes featuring
over 53,000 documented functions. Our plugins support all three platforms
Mac OS X, Windows and Linux with all project types desktop, web and

Some of the highlights on the 14.3 update:

For applications in the Mac App Store, we have the StoreKit functions to
handle in-app purchases. With the new plugin we add classes to read details
from the app store receipt and check which in-app purchases have been
purchased. Our plugin can also verify if the receipt is valid.

Our CURL Plugin can send and receive emails for years now via IMAP, Pop3
and SMTP. With the new plugin class CURLEmailMBS we make it easier to build
the emails for sending. So you can assemble an email with HTML, plain and
rich text parts, attachments and various addresses and send it via SMTP
server through CURL classes.

For Mac we implemented the Image Capture classes and various views. So you
can show the same user interface as Apple’s applications. There is a device
selector view, a scanner and a camera view. You can access devices like
scanners and cameras, browse, import or scan images.

Our new TimerMBS class provides a high resolution cross platform timer.
While Xojo’s built in timer only fires 60 times per second on Windows, our
timer can run a quick as 1000 times per second.

The new UDP Socket class in our plugins provides some more low level
options for UDP. For example you can reuse addresses for multicast.

For printing we got improvements for both Mac and Windows. The
NSPrintInfoMBS class can now be used to modify PrinterSetup.SetupString to
enable different options like duplex printing or switch printers. Similar
things can be done on Windows using the WindowsDeviceModeMBS class using
new functions.

Our SQL Plugin now supports better using SSL with MySQL. The new
ConnectionHandler events allow you to specify extra options for connecting.
The SQLDatabaseMBS class now raises exceptions if you call unsupported
functions. This avoids trouble for unintended calls.

This update includes a lot of little improvements like get/set RTF data on
a TextArea on Windows using native methods which is more efficient. We
already have similar functions for Mac, so you can avoid using StyledText
class methods. Our WinThumbnailMBS function provides preview images of
supported file types on Windows.

With this update, we also provide updated libraries like zint, PortAudio,
OpenSSL 1.0.1i, CURL 7.37.1, DynaPDF, LCMS 2.6 and LibXL 3.6.0.

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.

collection. Starting at 20 Euro ($29 USD) for one component. The
