MonkeyBread Software Releases the MBS Xojo / Real Studio plug-ins in version 14.0

NICKENICH, Germany (February 4th, 2014) -- Monkeybread Software releases version 14.0 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 14.0 update:

Our new SSH plugin allows you to remotely login to a computer. For the connection you can let the plugin connect a socket or pass an already connected TCPSocket to the plugin. This plugin is supported on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux and allows better integration into your app than running ssh via shell class.

For Cocoa we added a new NSButtonCellMBS class. For various control classes we got new events like TextDidBeginEditing, TextDidEndEditing and TextDidChange. Our OpenDialogMBS class now has a Cocoa implementation and for OverlayMBS class the WindowHidden and WindowShown events work now on Cocoa target.

We updated our AVFoundation plugin for Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks. This adds more than 400 new functions and 18 new classes. For the events, we now can pass variant tags everywhere. This way you can pass context information to the events. With AVFoundationMBS.WriteCGImageToFile method you can save images in background for even better performance extracting frames from a video.

The SQL Plugin now has be updated to use properties instead of methods, so you see more values in debugger. The new fields and parameters dictionaries in the SQLCommandMBS class allow you to see parameter and field values in the debugger. If you set our new RaiseExceptions property to false, you will not see SQLErrorException, but you can check the Error properties.

For Linux we added support for the window transparency functions. The GTKWindowMBS class can now be used to assign a new Icon to a window. Also we fixed some linker issues on Linux with plugins and no longer optimize away stack frames for better crash reports.

The PictureMBS class now handles 16bit grayscale images for some operations. The new InputData property in CURL classes allows providing data for upload without using Read event. The GetVariantArrayMBS function allows casting any array of objects to an array of variants. With CallDelegateOnMainThreadMBS method you can run methods on the main thread from any other thread. The VerifyEmailMBS function can check emails for syntax and query if the domain has a valid mailbox server. Finally the SignalHandlerMBS class can set a flag and ignore signals, so you can handle them later, e.g. catch Control-C in a console app and gracefully exit your app.

DynaPDF has been updated to version and can now highlight text with ignoring case and accents. LibXL is updated to version 3.5.4 and the XMP Toolkit to version 5.5.
