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 188.8.131.52 and LibArchive to version 3.2.1.
