The MBS plug-in comprises a collection of several plug-in parts which extend the Xojo development environment with 2,400 classes featuring over 62,000 documented functions. Our plugins support all three platforms Mac OS X, Windows and Linux with all project types desktop, web and console including 64-bit and ARM targets.
Some of the highlights on the 17.3 update:
If you are interested in using SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) queries to check status of your network devices, you can now use our NetSNMPMBS class.
To select fonts on Windows you can now use the WindowsFontDialogMBS class. The dialog can be preset, provides an apply button with an event to live show the new font in your document and various other events to know its state. With various properties you can customize the appearance of the dialog.
While the next macOS version is in beta, we already implemented new functions to support newer image and video formats there. This plugin also fixes a few issues, so you can now use our plugins on the latest macOS beta.
For our XL functions to read and write Excel documents, we can now load and save partial documents. If you have huge documents, using a temporary file can reduce the memory requirements. And if you only need data from one sheet inside a big document, loading only that one sheet can speed up processing a lot.
For CipherMBS class we changed CipherInit, EncryptInit and DecryptInit methods to return a boolean and indicate whether they were successful. You may need to update your code.
Our WindowsDeviceModeMBS class is updated for handling setup strings better in Xojo 2017r1. This is important as the format changed and you may want to avoid trouble.
We got PNG library with SSE2 for Mac enabled, context menu in overlayMBS, better handling of emails, better PDFKit annotations, CURL form data inspection and much more.
Finally we updated SQLite to 3.19.3, PostgreSQL to version 9.6.3, OpenSSL to 1.1.0f and 1.0.2l, libPNG to version 1.6.30 and DynaPDF to 126.96.36.199.
