5000 Functions in MBS Plugin

Last year in summer I reported we reached 4000 functions.

Only 17 months later I write documentation for the upcoming 7.5 release and just noticed that we hit the 5000 functions goal!

I don't want to list all 1000 functions we got since June 2016, but here the list of topics added in the creation order:

SmartCard, ImageCapture, Updater, Java, TouchBar, WIA, Certificates, AVPlayer, DirectoryWatcher, iOSDevice, Registry, WinSendMail, UNNotification, WindowsUserNotification, MailComposer, MessageComposer, SocialComposer, BinaryFile, ImagePicker, CoreImage, ScriptWorkspace, Debugger, ImageView, CoreML, iOSKeyboard, iOSApp and Shell.

Please take the time to checkout what functions we got there and maybe you can use a few of them in one of your projects? The new Shell functionality for macOS, Windows and Linux looks promising and may be a big help to run command line tools. (

This is a function I will use a lot, but how does it differ from the RunTask functions? I know the ReadOut doesn’t work under Windows, but will in the new Shell. What are the significants.

It’s not yet ready.
But the key is to have the same functions for Mac, Windows and Linux, so you can launch processes and get output.
Like RunTask for all platforms.
