  • Fixed a bug with string encoding in SQL plugin when using ascii strings with undefined encoding.
  • Fixed a double freed pointer problem in SQL Plugin.
  • Fixed Base64MBS.Yield property. It's now setable.
  • Fixed bug in CDDrawAreaMBS constructor for use with CDDataSetMBS.setDataSymbol.

  • Changed WinUSBMBS class so that WinUSB.dll is loaded dynamically.
  • Now all plugins are compiled on Mac OS X 10.8.
  • All plugin parts are now linked with Mac OS X 10.7 SDK. Older functions are loaded on demand. This can mean that QuickDraw functions deprecated in Mac OS X 10.4 may stop working with Mac OS X 10.8/10.9 when Apple removes them from the frameworks.
  • Internal conversion from PicHandle to Picture now always converts to bitmap in order to avoid leak in Real Studio. see Feedback case 22002.
  • Improved speed for QTPictureMovieTrackMBS.AddPicture a little bit.

  • Improved String handling in SQL Plugin when using with RecordSet class.
  • Changed ABPickerMBS.InstallEvents method to raise exception on non Carbon targets. This method can only work on Carbon. For Cocoa, please use ABPeoplePickerViewMBS class.
  • Changed all Handle Properties back to Integer instead of Ptr due to bug in Real Studio (Feedback case 21100).
  • Changed functions for printing htmlviewer/webview on Mac to not reset page settings too often.
  • Changed Length and Time properties to be Int64 in VLCMediaPlayerMBS class.
  • Changed plugins to include more function names so debug reports look better.
  • Changed QTImporter plugin part to work on console mostly. So StringToPictureMBS works now there. As this relays on QuickTime, it could of course fail. And it does not work on Linux.
  • Changed SQL Plugin to now work internally with UTF-8 if possible.
  • Changed VLCEventManagerMBS class to execute events on main thread.
  • In working around Feedback case 11329 for some clients with huge projects, we split some more plugin parts.
  • Modernized WinSpeechMBS class.
  • Moved to newer Plugin SDK for RS 2012.
  • Now properly handles workaround for case 19282 in all plugin parts (leak in REALLockPictureDescription).
  • Now using REALObjectIsA in our plugins instead of own way to check classes. Works fine in Real Studio 2009 to 2012.
  • Renamed SaveProfileToString to SaveProfileToMemory for returning a memoryblock.
  • Several methods in SQLCommandMBS class are now properties to make debugging easier.
  • Split Java, HTMLViewerDOM, QuartzCore, PDFKit and CF plugin parts.
  • Warning: Zip file classes use a lot of stack space. If running in a thread, you need to make sure the thread has big stack (1 MB) instead of smaller default size.
  • Removed CDMissingFunctionExceptionMBS class.
  • Removed PackCursResourceMBS function.
  • Removed CDBaseChartMBS.LoadLibrary as now everything is static linked for ChartDirector plugin.
  • Removed deprecated functions (by Apple) from CGDisplayMBS class: BitsPerPixel, BitsPerSample, SamplesPerPixel, BytesPerRow, BaseAddress, BaseAddressAsMemoryBlock, BaseAddressForPosition and BaseAddressForPositionAsMemoryBlock.
  • Removed data source for SQL Plugin. Please create connections only in code to database, not in IDE. If someone really uses this, we can bring it back.
  • Removed DotMacKit plugin.
  • Removed Graphics.HandleMBS. Please use built in functions from Real Studio.
  • Removed PHP Plugin.

I've developed 70 educational programs in Real Studio for use in the classroom. Many of these programs would not have been possible at all without the MBS plugins. Even though the plugins are amazingly comprehensive in adding core Cocoa and Carbon API access, the developer somehow has done a superhuman job of continuously adding even more functionality with each release. If you want to develop complex professional software with Real Studio, you must purchase these plugins.

By the way, before the typical troll on MacUpdate accuses me of being an amateur for using Real Studio, for 30 years I've developed neurophysiology research software in assembly, C++, LabVIEW, Prograph CPX and Java, to name a few programming languages, on laboratory minicomputers and several types of personal computers. I currently program in Objective-C as well.

I use the appropriate tool for the particular job, and for my educational software, Real Studio and the MBS plugins allowed me to quickly create professional applications that are used at colleges around the world.
