[MBS] [ANN] MonkeyBread Software Releases the MBS Xojo / Real Studio plug-ins in version 17.0

From: Christian Schmitz
NICKENICH, Germany (January 23rd, 2017) -- Monkeybread Software releases
version 17.0 of the MBS plug-in for Xojo and Real Studio.

The MBS plug-in comprises a collection of several plug-in parts which extend
the Xojo (Real Studio) development environment with 2,400 classes featuring
over 61,000 documented functions. Our plugins support all three platforms Mac
OS X, Windows and Linux with all project types desktop, web and console
including 64-bit and ARM targets.

Some of the highlights on the 17.0 update:

Sometimes you need to provide certificates and SSL keys to CURL plugin for
secure transfers. To make it easier to query details from those certificates,
we added a X509MBS class. The PKeyMBS class helps working with private or
public keys, which you can read using our new PKCS12MBS class.

For better encryption you can now use our TwoFishMBS class. TwoFish is derived
from the older Blowfish encrypter and was one of the AES finalists. Rijndael
was choose for AES, but Twofish may be a good alternative in some cases.

For macOS we added the LAContextMBS class to query local authentication. This
includes using TouchID on the latest Macbook Pro. Please note that this
feature is only available for 64-bit applications.

Our DynaPDF plugin now supports loading newer DynaPDF libraries and use them
instead of the built-in library. For page templates we added a convenience
function to rotate them. The DynaPDFEditTextMBS class provides now more
details on the text to replace so you can use it to find texts on PDF pages
and highlight them. As we fixed a few things for printing with DynaPDF, please
update your code to match our examples to keep it working well.

The WordFileMBS class to work on Word files have been improved. It should now
be able to replace tags with multi line texts. And if you have a table in your
template, we can now remove rows there, too.

Our WKWebViewControlMBS control to use WebKit 2 on Mac in 64-bit applications
now supports more events. You can use that control instead of a HTMLViewer
control. In 32-bit applications, you get WebKit 1.0 while in 64-bit
applications you get WebKit 2.0. We try to keep functionality equal for both

We improved PHP class, PortMidiStreamMBS, CGImageSourceMBS, JSONMBS classes
and more. We added MeasureRotatedTextMBS to measure size of text for drawing
with DrawRotatedTextMBS.

Finally we updated DynaPDF to version, LibXL to version 3.7.2 and
SQLite to 3.16.2.

See release notes for a complete list of changes:

If you have questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

The plug-ins require Xojo or Real Studio 2006r4 or newer. Also required are
1 GB hard disc space and around 1 GB of RAM in addition to the requirements of
Xojo (Real Studio) and your operation system itself. While all plug-in parts
compile on Mac OS X, 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 one 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:
