NICKENICH, Germany (May 8th, 2013) -- Monkeybread Software releases
version 13.1 of the MBS plug-in for Real Studio.
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 46,000 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 13.1 update:
First we put a lot of work into getting our plugins working fine with
the upcoming Xojo 2013r1 version. If you plan to try the new release, be
aware that older plugin versions will not work correctly with Xojo. You
can use the normal Real Studio plugins from us with Xojo, but you may
prefer to download our new Xojo plugins. They are optimized for the new
version and you benefit from smaller file sizes and faster loading
Our new NikonCamera plugin allows you to connect to Nikon cameras with
the Nikon SDK. You can query features and download image files. With
sending commands to the devices you can have it delete files or shoot a
new image. Than you can download image files and also show live video

enhance your pictures by using the auto adjust filter functions. In
Cocoa applications you can directly render to a picture with a context.

We also improved our custom cocoa control classes to have drag and drop
events. Our NSMenu handling has been improved with better validation
code. For Core Animation we now have classes for layers and transitions
to do some effects.
In your Mac application you can use the new keychain classes which use
the latest APIs and provide much more functionality. The MacAliasMBS
class has been improved to use newer APIs and offer more functionality.
Several CoreGraphics functions have been updated and we got new function
to create graphics contexts. This way you can draw directly to picture
objects in Cocoa.
For Windows we have now a class to learn about disk changes. The WMI
classes can now read string arrays. Our DNS functions like
DNSNameToAddressMBS now use newer APIs on Windows 7 and still carry
fallback code for Windows XP. So you get better result with DNS queries.
And we now support IPv6 for all platforms.
To improve security we now offer HMAC hash functions for MD5, SHA1 and
We improved our SQL Plugin with new informix class and improved record
insertion code. The Twain scanning classes got new options for
orientation and resolution and handle better when scanning without user
interface. For the Java database classes we improved blob support for
drivers using streams.
We updated DynaPDF library to 220.127.116.11 and added new table functions
which allow multi page tables. Our XL plugin now uses libXL version
3.4.2 to benefit from latest changes there.
