Our functions to send emails got a major upgrade. Now we are fully
compatible and tested with Microsoft Outlook. Also you can now specify the
text encoding for the case you don’t want to send UTF-8 emails.

For our Windows users with a telephone system, we have now a plugin for the
telephone API. This allows you for example to show a customer record for a
matching phone call. Or to dial automatically for your application user.

More windows features include new clipboard functions to get/set pictures
and a new function WinOpenFolderAndSelectItemsMBS. This function can open
an explorer window and select a file. For Mac OS X a similar function is
available in NSWorkSpaceMBS class.

On the Mac side, we added a new QTMovieModernizerMBS class to use QTKit to
translate movies in older QuickTime formats to modern MPEG 4 files. As OS X
Yosemite added new features for AVFoundation, we got new methods there on a
few classes. If you like to print HMTLViewer in a Cocoa application, please
use the new NSPrintOperationMBS methods. For CoreWLAN we got new function
to handle keychain and store WLAN passwords.

For ChartDirector we updated our controls example for retina compatibility
on Mac OS X. Our AUPlayerMBS class for playing sounds got new overlap and
peak locking option. Our UDP Socket can now work better on Windows and got
a new ReusePort property.
