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 array.
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 184.108.40.206.
