Nickenich, Germany - (July 12th, 2021) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS Xojo Plugins 21.3 for macOS, Linux and Windows, the latest update to their product that is easily the most powerful plugin collection currently available for Xojo. MBS Xojo Plugins have been updated and now includes over 2800 classes and 73,000 documented features, and the versatile plugins have gained more new functions:
With this release we integrate zbar as an option for barcode detection. If you have a picture of a barcode to detect, you can try zxing classes. Or you load the zbar library with ZBarMBS.LoadLibrary function and then try the new Scan function in ZBarMBS class. Supported barcodes in zbar includes EAN-13/UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-8, Code 128, Code 39, Interleaved 2 of 5 and QR Code.
For years we have OCR functions using tesseract 3.02 and that library got dated. We now allow you to opt-in to use LoadLibrary method in TessEngineMBS class and load the current version 4.1 of tesseract and benefit from the enhancements in the library. With the new version you can recognize with multiple languages in the same text and pass a picture directly to the engine.
For our CURLSMBS class we added a support for pre-signed URLs. You can use our examples for Amazon S3 to upload files and then generate time limited URLs to access those files with AWSPresignURL method and load them in a HTMLViewer. The CAInfo file can now be passed from a container.
For macOS we added support for more barcodes in VNDetectBarcodesRequestMBS class, a new isMonterey function for SystemInformationMBS to detect the upcoming macOS version. And isLowPowerModeEnabled property in NSProcessInfoMBS lets you detect low power mode. Our MapKit integration got new classes for multi polygons and polylines. The NSCollectionViewControlMBS control got new features for sections and drag & drop.
Finally we updated curl library to version 7.77.0, DynaPDF to 22.214.171.124, openssl library to 1.1.1k, SQLite to 3.36.0 and Xcode to version 12.5.1.
