The MBS plug-in comprises a collection of several plug-in parts which extend the Xojo (Real Studio) development environment with 2,400 classes featuring over 62,000 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 17.2 update:
For our Windows users we added new WinUserNotificationMBS classes to show user notifications on Windows 8 and newer. A notification can show a picture and several text lines to notify user about an event when your app runs in background. For macOS we provide similar features using NSUserNotificationMBS class.
For CURL we have new methods to setup queries to Amazon Webservices and we provide an example for AWS S3 download and upload. Our plugin provides the authentication based on AWS4-HMAC-SHA256 for the queries, so you can easily integrate several amazon services. With new socket type functions, you can now let CURL connect to an IP and use the connection like any other socket with reading and writing data. CURL encapsulates all the IP protocols (IPv4 and IPv6), proxies and SSL options for you. Finally we allow you to use the system root certificates on macOS and Windows for SSL verification.
For DynaPDF we got new examples for PDF/A conversion and normalization. This includes new functions to replace missing fonts. New functions for printing allow you to specify more print options and let the plugin show print dialog to print directly to a printer.
The new JPEGMovieMBS class can create movies cross platform using JPEG image files. The resulting files can be played in QuickTime player and VLC.
Finally we updated libarchive to version 3.3.1, LibXL to 3.8.0, OpenSSL to 1.1.0e and 1.0.2k, PostgreSQL to 9.6.2 and SQLAPI to 4.1.11, SQLite to 3.18.0, libtidy to 5.4, DynaPDF to 184.108.40.206 and Xcode to 8.3.2.
See release notes for a complete list of changes.
Currently you can buy this plugin collection as part of the 2017 Omegabundle.
