NICKENICH, Germany (January 17th, 2012) -- Monkeybread Software releases version 12.0 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 1,500 classes featuring over 38,000 documented functions. Our plugins support all three platforms Mac OS X, Windows and Linux with all project types desktop, web and console.
After our very big 11.3 release end of last year, we concentrated now on improving existing things:
We updated our LCMS2 plugin to use version 2.3 and added several new classes, methods and examples to really use much more of this nice library. Like you can now edit, modify or create tone curves. Also you can use the pipeline class to access/edit the stages for a Device to PCS or PCS to Device tag.
For Windows we allow now watching for WMI events and going through an object hierarchy using the new WinObjectMBS class. For this we added methods to run queries asynchronously. For watching for changes in a directory, we have FSEventsMBS class on Mac and now also the WindowsDirectoryWatcherMBS class for Windows.
On the Cocoa target, we added a ton of new classes. Improvements to NSAttributedStringMBS and NSMutableAttributedStringMBS let you handle attributes better. For example when loading a Word document, you can now query metadata like author name. The new NSPathControlMBS class helps to display file paths in a window like the Finder. Also we added new scroll wheel events for custom views and new table view events.
We fixed a couple of critical bugs related to console graphics, text encodings and picture handling, so we recommend this update to all of our users. Especially if you plan to use Real Studio 2011r4.
