MonkeyBread Software Releases the MBS Xojo Plugins in version 24.3

Nickenich, Germany - (July 9th, 2024) -- Monkeybread Software today is pleased to announce MBS Xojo Plugins 24.3 for macOS, Linux and Windows, the latest update to their product that is easily the most powerful plugin collection currently available for Xojo. MBS Xojo Plugins have been updated and now includes over 3000 classes and 82,000 documented features, and the versatile plugins have gained more new functions:

Use Python scripts in your Xojo application. Our new PythonMBS class can load a local Python library and evaluate expressions or run scripts. Get and set variables in Python to exchange data in memory. The Python code can optionally call back to Xojo code with custom functions.

We improved NSLocaleMBS class for macOS and iOS to provide more information with properties. Use localizedString functions to get localized names for these identifiers and use the DidChange notification with NSNotificationObserverMBS class to get a callback if locale changes.

In DynaPDF you can now keep annotations from flattening if DynaPDF doesn't recognize them. The FindText method in DynaPDFParserMBS class can now skip sorting with the new SearchAsIs flag. You can enable an image cache for DynaPDF and change line annotation's coordinates.

Our CURL plugin got enhanced to better handle MQTT connections. We got a new example to show you how to do MQTT connections. The debug log for CURL connections shows the URL for the request for helping you to debug the scripts.

For Windows we added WindowsDeviceWatcherMBS class to watch for devices connecting. The WindowsDeviceInformationMBS class provides details. This helps with our BLE classes for Windows to better find devices.

The low level compression classes for bzip and zlib (ZLibDecompressMBS, ZLibCompressMBS, BZip2DecompressMBS and BZip2CompressMBS classes) got new constructors to take output buffer as ptr and buffer size as integer, so you can use them with MemoryBlocks. The SetInput methods now take ptr, too.

The new UIDeviceMBS class provides details about the iOS device. Query orientation, system version, model and orientation. The XMLValidatorMBS class can now convert XML to canonical format. The isValidJSON function in JSONMBS class can validate whether some text is valid JSON.

Use the new DarwinHostVMStatisticsMBS class to query memory statistics for virtual memory on macOS and iOS. Use the Duplex property with NSPrintInfoMBS class to switch duplex on or off. And check the isSequoia function in SystemInformationMBS module to detect the next macOS version.

Finally we updated CubeSQL library to version 5.9, CURL to 8.8.0, DynaPDF to, the plugin SDK for Xojo 2024r2, SQLAPI to 5.3.2, SQLite to 3.46.0 and updated to Xcode to version 15.4.
