MonkeyBread Software Releases the MBS Xojo / Real Studio plug-ins in version 15.0

The MBS plug-in comprises a collection of several plug-in parts which
extend the Xojo (Real Studio) development environment with 2,100 classes featuring
over 54,000 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 15.0 update:

Our newest plugin version has several enhancement for networking. First we
added a couple of LDAP classes to query directory services. Than we added a
new CURL class to run multiple transfers efficiently on the main thread and
still in background. With improvements to Bonjour classes we can now query
IPs for domain names in background without blocking application. Finally
SSH Session now allows to connect with timeout.

On Windows the new player class can play MP3 files with various options
like rate, pitch and volume. Our system information module can now properly
detect Windows 8.1. We have a new class to get notifications when a drive
mounts or unmounts on Windows.

For DynaPDF we added new methods to close and sign a PDF on Windows using
the certificates installed on the computer. We got new classes for view
ports, system fonts and geospatial coordinate data. Most DynaPDF classes
now have private constructor to avoid coding errors.

For Addressbook on OS X we have new controls ABPeoplePickerViewControlMBS
and ABPersonViewControlMBS. Using those controls you can have a person or
group picker or a viewer for an addressbook entry in your Xojo windows. The
new account class helps to handle multiple accounts better. And
ABMultiValueMBS class got improved for easier use and better debugging.

If you need audio playback on OS X, the CoreAudioListenerMBS class informs
you about events like changes in the audio setup. Our AUPlayerMBS class now
allows to switch from timepitch to varispeed audio units while playing for
better adjustments of pitch and rate properties.

More improvements are made to Barcode, AVFoundation, Twain, TAPI, CoreText,
LCMS2 and Quicklook classes. A couple of new cocoa classes help with status
items, toolbar item groups, file wrappers and text attachments.

The plugin is updated for Xojo 2015r1 SDK and support new text data type in
several cases. We updated DynaPDF to version, PCRE to 8.36,
OpenSSL to 1.0.1j, libPNG to 1.6.14, libJPEG to 9.1, GraphicsMagick to
1.3.20, CURL to 7.39.0, LibXL to 3.6.1 and LCMS2 to 2.7fc1.

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.
