The MBS plug-in comprises a collection of several plug-in parts which extend the Real Studio development environment with 2,000 classes featuring over 52,000 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 14.2 update:
The new CoreText classes in our plugins cover the whole CoreText framework from Apple for working with fonts and rendering text with attributes. The older ATS classes are now deprecated and we suggest if you need such functions, you should move soon to the new classes.
For Windows you can use WebKit as renderer for a htmlviewer. This uses Chromium internally and with our new ChromiumBrowserMBS and ChromiumFrameMBS classes we can provide additional methods. You can get the text of the current page, the URL or the image. And of course the usual methods like going forward or backwards in history.
For Mac OS X we added new classes for CoreFoundation, CoreGraphics and Cocoa frameworks: CFMutableAttributedStringMBS, CFRangeMBS, CGFontMBS and NSAlertMBS. The new NSServiceProviderMBS class can help providing services in Cocoa applications.
Our new AUPlayerMBS class allows you to play audio on Mac OS X with various parameters. This includes pitch, rate, pan and equalizer. Audio can loop and you can select the output device.
Our SQL Plugin got improvements. The SQLDatabaseMBS and SQLConnectionMBS classes have now a Scrollable property. SQLNumericMBS class got improvements with new shared methods for various number types.
The Barcode generator can now also create SVG or postscript files. For Windows HTMLViewer with Internet Explorer we can now zoom the content.
As part of this update we also updated a couple of used libraries including CURL, GraphicsMagick, LCMS2, DynaPDF and OpenSSL. The Nikon plugin now works with newer SDK versions for newer camera models.
