The MBS plug-in comprises a collection of several plug-in parts which
extend the Real Studio development environment with 1,700 classes
featuring over 45,000 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 13.0 update:

New functions for localization help you format numbers with the
localization of the user in a Web Edition application. So if server runs
with US localization and a french user uses your Web app, you can use
FormatMBS and CDblMBS to handle numbers in french localization. The
LocaleMBS class provides information about localized number formatting.

For Mac OS X 10.8.2 we updated our GameKit classes. With more than 100
new methods and events, you can now update your games to use this new
methods and take full advance of the new functions in GameCenter.

Improved UUID creation and validation, so you can now generate random
UUID and also validate UUIDs entered by the user. The Validate function
can also fix UUIDs which are not 100% correct.

The SQL plugin has been updated do SQLAPI 4.0.3b1 and includes new
informix unicode client. We also added a InformixMBS class. For normal
SQL queries we added SQLSelectAsRecordSet and SQLSelectAsRecordSetMT
functions, so you can query on SQLConnectionMBS and still get a
RecordSet instead of a SQLCommandMBS object. Useful to pass the
RecordSet to report functions. Also we have SQLCommandMBS.AsRecordSet to
give you a record set for a command object. The function
BuildRecordSetMBS can be used to build a new recordset based on a string

For our Twain plugin, we can now do scans without showing user interface
and also set parameters like resolution and orientation before the scan.
For Windows the transfers have been optimized and are faster now.

For safe access to the user interface from a thread, we added functions
to set the text of labels and the value of progress bars from a thread.
The plugin will make sure the main thread does those updates while your
background thread continues. With ShowModalThreadSafeMBS on the
MessageDialog class you can show message dialogs from a thread.

There are several little changes like a new SHA3MBS class, support for
CoreFoundation on Windows using QuickTime, new Recursion properties on
DirectorySizeMBS, more methods on CIImageMBS, new Mouse events on
OverlayMBS and volume property for audio play through classes.

CURL library is updated to version 7.28.1, the libXL library updated to
3.4.0 and DynaPDF library to

See release notes for a complete list of changes: ... n130.shtml

If you have questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. Also you can
ask questions at Real World in Orlando next year.

The plug-ins require Real Studio 2006r4 or newer. Also required are 1 GB
hard disc space and around 512 MB of RAM in addition to the requirements
of Real Studio and your operation system itself. While all plug-in parts
compile on Mac OS X (universal), Linux and Windows, each function may
depend on additional system requirements to work successfully.

Plugin licenses are available for components or for the complete
collection. Starting at 20 Euro ($29 USD) for one component. The
complete package costs 199 Euro ($299 USD) for commercial usage. If you
buy a current license, you will get free updates for one year. After
that year, you can update your license to cover an additional year.

The plugins can be downloaded on MBS' website as one big package or
several smaller ones: ... gins.shtml
