MonkeyBread Software Releases the MBS Xojo / Real Studio plug-ins in version 16.3

NICKENICH, Germany (July 12h, 2016) – Monkeybread Software releases
version 16.3 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 Xojo (Real Studio) development environment with 2,300 classes
featuring over 59,000 documented functions. Our plugins support all three
platforms Mac OS X, Windows and Linux with all project types desktop, web
and console including 64-bit and ARM targets.

Some of the highlights on the 16.3 update:

Our latest plugins have been updated for Xojo 2016r2. Due to a few little
changes in the new Xojo version we had to modify the plugins. Older plugins
may not work properly.

For 64-bit applications we added a new Contacts plugin part with a couple
of new classes. For new 64-bit applications you may prefer the new classes
instead of the older Addressbook classes.

For accessing smartcard readers, we got a set of new functions in our new
SmartCard plugin. You can list the readers, detect cards and transmit data
to them. This is very low level and requires knowledge about the protocols
used with your smart card.

For DynaPDF we improved the difference feature to compare two pages. You
can now specify the color tolerance. We added a new optimize parameter
class for our optimize command.

Our SQL Plugin got new methods to execute prepared statements
multithreaded. That allows you to use them in a Xojo thread and have the
work run on a preemptive thread on another CPU core.

For editing word files we now have methods to replace images. PortMidi can
now handle unicode device names and initialize on demand.

Finally we updated DynaPDF to version and LibArchive to version

of Xojo (Real Studio) and your operation system itself. While all plug-in
parts compile on Mac OS X, Linux and Windows, each function may depend on
additional system requirements to work successfully.
