NICKENICH, Germany (August 4th, 2015) – Monkeybread Software releases
version 15.2 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 Xojo (Real Studio) development environment with 2,100 classes featuring
over 56,000 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 15.2 update:
We updated our classes for Chromium on Windows. If you use a HTMLViewer
with WebKit in your projects, our new cookie manager classes help you
query, create or modify cookies. This allows to store cookies persistent in
The new HotKeyMBS class allows you to listen for keyboard combination on
both Mac OS X and Windows. The CarbonHotKeyMBS class still works for Mac OS
X projects, but the new class also works fine on Windows. You receive
events when a key is pressed down and when it’s released.
Our CURL plugin got a major update with a lot of new options and events.
This includes wildcard support for FTP transfers. The new CURLSFileInfoMBS
class provides details on files and is used for directory listings. With
wildcard support, we can batch download a lot of files in one directory.
For some CURL properties we now use 64-bit values by default and we set
more options by default to make it easier for beginners to use the plugin.
The new ArgumentsMBS function on the app class allows you to get launch
arguments for your application. This works cross platform for Mac, Windows
and Linux. It helps to create desktop apps which also can be controlled
by command line options or work like any other command line tool and show
no user interface.
For the SQL Plugin we now include optional a SQLite library. Use the
InternalSQLiteLibraryMBS module to check the library and activate it. By
using the library in our plugin you don’t need to include a separate sqlite
library file with your application.
Finally we upgraded to the latest Xojo plugin SDK, updated DynaPDF to
version 22.214.171.124 and libXL to version 3.6.2.
