  • Changed CURLS Plugin on Windows to link to a different set of libraries so CURL now supports SSH on Windows, too.
  • Improved NSViewMBS.RenderImage and added new parameter for subviews which makes it working better with WebViewMBS.
  • Improved PictureMBS.CopyPixels. In special case for RGB/BGR data the copy is done much faster if the images are similar constructed. We could optimize for other image formats in the future.

  • Changed most CURL examples to use CURLSMBS instead of CURLMBS to make them working on Windows right away.

  • Improved DeleteResourceForkMBS and DeleteDataForkMBS to use newer APIs.
  • Improved WindowsAddPrintJobMBS class.
  • Improved QLPreviewPanelMBS so it conforms more to the way Apple wants us to use it. This avoids error and warning messages on the console.
  • Improved folderitem.UnMountVolumeMBS with additional parameters and now returns error code.
  • Updated FlushVolumeMBS, IsEjectableVolumeMBS and IsOnRemoteVolumeMBS in folderitem class to use newer Apple API.

  • Fixed the WindowsMutexMBS class to do the cleanup better.

  • PictureMBS.CopyPixels now returns boolean value for success or failure.
  • Renamed GetInfoResposeCode to GetInfoResponseCode in CURL classes.
  • QTMovieExporterMBS.SetupDialog functions can now be called with nil movie to show the generic dialog without a preview.
  • Now more than 4000 inline example code pieces in the documentation.
  • Splitted PDFKit plugin part internally into two parts. One with views and one without. So you can get a little bit smaller applications if you don't use the views.
  • Splitted WIADeviceManagerMBS into WIADeviceManager1MBS and WIADeviceManager2MBS. On Windows Vista you will want to use WIADeviceManager1MBS for digital cameras and WIADeviceManager2MBS for scanners.
