NICKENICH, Germany (July 24th, 2013) -- Monkeybread Software releases version 13.2 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 1,700 classes featuring over 48,000 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 13.2 update:
As you may know AVFoundation framework is now the preferred way for applications on Mac OS X 10.7 and newer to do video editing. This includes recording video and audio from various sources, loading existing assets and creating new assets with audio and video content. Powerful export and convert functions allow to transcode video and audio data. And of course you can also play back audio and video and extract images and audio samples. So if you want to enjoy those new functions, you can migrate your existing code using QuickTime or QTKit to this new framework. This new plugin has 80 new classes and over 1500 new documented functions alone.
New Mac OS X classes for the Disk Arbitration Framework help with mounting and unmounting disks. And you can use them to query information about existing drives.
For Cocoa we add new classes and methods. For example the SpinningProgressIndicatorMBS allows better progress indicators.
The SQL Plugin has been improved. The LastStatement property on the SQLDatabaseMBS helps you now debugging your code by providing the last issued statement string. Or new DB2MBS class gives some direct DB2 related commands And you now can use CommandType parameter on all the functions which take SQL strings, so you can define if SQLAPI preprocesses the SQL command or not. Also we improved stability on Web Apps using our SQL Plugin and fixed a few bugs related to ODBC.
For our CURL Plugin we added a new Cancel property which helps to properly stop threaded operations. Also we improved the automatic collection of debug messages. We do have to inform you that we dropped PPC support for the CURL plugin due to some unfixable bugs.
We updated DynaPDF library to 18.104.22.168 and added new table examples. Our XL plugin now uses libXL version 3.5.3 to benefit from latest changes there. For LCMS2 reuse now the 2.5 release and our VLC plugin has been updated to 2.0.7. For SQL Functions we now use SQLAPI 4.1.1.
