MBS Xojo / Real Studio plug-ins in version 13.5

NICKENICH, Germany (December 17th, 2013) -- Monkeybread Software releases
version 13.5 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 Real Studio development environment with 1,900 classes featuring over 50,000 documented functions. Our plugins support all three platforms Mac OS X, Windows and Linux with all project types desktop, web and console.

Some of the highlights on the 13.5 update:

You can now add barcode support to your application. Using the zint library we can create barcodes in a variety of formats. And using the zxing library we can recognize barcodes in several formats automatically. Both work for 1D and 2D barcodes including EAN, UPC and QRCode. For drawing barcodes into PDF, we have methods to draw them as vector graphics instead of bitmaps.

Our new OpenSSL encryption CipherMBS class allows you to encrypt the same way as the openssl command line tool. This allows you to use the same padding and encryption options as in other development environments. Same for hashes with the new DigestMBS class.

For Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks we have new classes and methods. You can read/write tags for folderitems, use the media library browser panel and enjoy new Core Image filters. The NSTimerMBS and NSUserNotificationMBS classes have been updated with new methods. The Core Location manager got new events and for the in-app-purchases you can use the SKReceiptRefreshRequestMBS class to test.

If you use HTMLViewer with WebKit on Linux applications, you can now use our LinuxWebKit classes to control the webviewer. For example you can check cookies or the history.

Use the iTunesLibraryMBS class to access the local iTunes library on Mac OS X with iTunes 11. Also check access permissions using our ACL* classes on Mac. Our plugins have been updated to relay less on QuickTime and other frameworks.

If you use RTF data, please check our StyledText.RTFDataMBS property, an improved replacement for the official RTFData property. Also you can now directly use Apple's RTF methods on Textarea on Mac OS X.

Use WindowsQOSMBS class on Windows for network flow control. For Windows we also improved our Zip file handling, CURL SSL support and HTMLViewer extensions.

DynaPDF has been updated to version, SQLAPI to version 4.1.2 and for EyeOne we now support i1Pro SDK 4.1.2. GraphicsMagick now includes JPEG 2000 support for all platforms.
