New plugins feature new methods, classes, fixes
Monkeybread Software has launched an update to its REALbasic plug-in package, MBS REALbasic Plugins 10.0. The suite features 29,000 functions in over 1,300 classes, providing REALbasic developers with an extensive list of extended tools to build software for the three major platforms.
Some of the highlighted additions in v10.0 include UniversalCharacterDetectionMBS or JSONMBS classes, and new methods such as SpotLightTextContentMBS to get the text content of a file. Classes for all Cocoa controls have been added in anticipation of REALbasic 2010's Cocoa target. A full list of changes, additions and fixes can be found on the Monkeybread website.
MBS REALbasic Plugins 10.0 requires REALbasic 2006r4 or later. Individual components can be purchased starting at $30, with the full package retailing for $285.
