NICKENICH, Germany (January 17th, 2012) -- Monkeybread Software releases
version 12.0 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 1,500 classes
featuring over 38,000 documented functions. Our plugins support all
three platforms Mac OS X, Windows and Linux with all project types
desktop, web and console.

After our very big 11.3 release end of last year, we concentrated now on
improving existing things:

We updated our LCMS2 plugin to use version 2.3 and added several new
classes, methods and examples to really use much more of this nice
library. Like you can now edit, modify or create tone curves. Also you
can use the pipeline class to access/edit the stages for a Device to PCS
or PCS to Device tag.

For Windows we allow now watching for WMI events and going through an
object hierarchy using the new WinObjectMBS class. For this we added
methods to run queries asynchronously. For watching for changes in a
directory, we have FSEventsMBS class on Mac and now also the
WindowsDirectoryWatcherMBS class for Windows.

On the Cocoa target, we added a ton of new classes. Improvements to
NSAttributedStringMBS and NSMutableAttributedStringMBS let you handle
attributes better. For example when loading a Word document, you can now
query metadata like author name. The new NSPathControlMBS class helps to
display file paths in a window like the Finder. Also we added new scroll
wheel events for custom views and new table view events.

We fixed a couple of critical bugs related to console graphics, text
encodings and picture handling, so we recommend this update to all of
our users. Especially if you plan to use Real Studio 2011r4.

See release notes for a complete list of changes:

The plug-ins require Real Studio 2006r4 or newer. Also required are 1 GB
hard disc space and around 512 MB of RAM in addition to the requirements
of Real Studio and your operation system itself. While all plug-in parts
compile on Mac OS X (universal), Linux and Windows, each function may
depend on additional system requirements to work successfully.

Plugin licenses are available for components or for the complete
collection. Starting at 20 Euro ($29 USD) for one component. The
complete package costs 199 Euro ($299 USD) for commercial usage. If you
buy a current license, you will get free updates for one year. After
that year, you can update your license to cover an additional year.

The plugins can be downloaded on MBS' website as one big package or
several smaller ones:
