REALbasic plugins get accessibility in Carbon
Keynote Pro has launched a new theme, Aurora, while MonkeyBread has updated its suite of REALbasic plugins.
Keynote Pro has released Aurora for Keynote, a new theme tied to Apple's presentation software. It includes 26 master slide templates covering a variety of purposes, with new Citation and Compare & Contrast layouts. The download is also accompanied by the Aurora Supplemental Materials file, which includes the Aurora palette, Button Objects for interactive presentations, and an infographic style using translucent hexagons to create a sense of perspective. Aurora Standard Edition costs $25, while a Pro Edition with extra HD content is priced at $35. Also available is the Pro Mobile edition, which bundles Pro Edition and new Aurora EP Edition content for $50.
