NICKENICH, Germany (March 21st, 2012) -- Monkeybread Software releases version 12.1 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 1,600 classes featuring over 40,000 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 12.1 update:
We added a new CanonEOSDigital plugin. Together with the Canon Digital EOS SDK you can access nearly all Canon digital cameras in order to shoot pictures and download them. Also you can delete pictures or get live video feed. This works both on Mac OS X and Windows.
For Windows we finally started with a DirectShow plugin. Using it you can record video from a webcam or digital video camera. For Mac we have QuickTime classes, but now we also have a Windows solution.
Also we did heavy work on the Windows Printing classes in our plugin. You can now query page formats, change printer settings and show various printer dialogs. Also we added some graphics class extensions to change paper format or orientation while printing.
On the Cocoa side we added a couple of new classes. We added the NSSegmentedControlMBS class so you can use more options on SegmentedControl in Real Studio or create instances for custom windows. Also we added more for font handling in Cocoa, Please also check the new examples on iCloud and Push Notifications.
For Windows we added WinNotificationMBS class. You can use it to send notification from one application to another application. Great for for a background application informing GUI application about work is done.
If you use the Web Edition to create web apps for a web server running on linux, you may want to check the LinuxSysInfoMBS class. It provides status details about your computer. For example you can use it to report back to you if memory is low and an admin may check what's going on.
Finally we updated DynaPDF to version 22.214.171.124 and libXL to version 3.2.3.
