NICKENICH, Germany (August 4th, 2015) -- Monkeybread Software releases version 15.2 of the MBS plug-in for Xojo and Real Studio.
The MBS plug-in comprises a collection of several plug-in parts which extend the Xojo (Real Studio) development environment with 2,100 classes featuring over 56,000 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 15.2 update:
We updated our classes for Chromium on Windows. If you use a HTMLViewer with WebKit in your projects, our new cookie manager classes help you query, create or modify cookies. This allows to store cookies persistent in a database.
The new HotKeyMBS class allows you to listen for keyboard combination on both Mac OS X and Windows. The CarbonHotKeyMBS class still works for Mac OS X projects, but the new class also works fine on Windows. You receive events when a key is pressed down and when it's released.
Our CURL plugin got a major update with a lot of new options and events. This includes wildcard support for FTP transfers. The new CURLSFileInfoMBS class provides details on files and is used for directory listings. With wildcard support, we can batch download a lot of files in one directory. For some CURL properties we now use 64-bit values by default and we set more options by default to make it easier for beginners to use the plugin.
The new ArgumentsMBS function on the app class allows you to get launch arguments for your application. This works cross platform for Mac, Windows and Linux. It helps to create desktop apps which also can be controlled by command line options or work like any other command line tool and show no user interface.
For the SQL Plugin we now include optional a SQLite library. Use the InternalSQLiteLibraryMBS module to check the library and activate it. By using the library in our plugin you don't need to include a separate sqlite library file with your application.
Finally we upgraded to the latest Xojo plugin SDK, updated DynaPDF to version 220.127.116.11 and libXL to version 3.6.2.
