Nickenich, Germany - (November 8th, 2022) -- MonkeyBread Software today is 
pleased to announce MBS Xojo Plugins 22.5 for macOS, Linux and Windows, the 
latest update to their product that is easily the most powerful plugin 
collection currently available for Xojo. MBS Xojo Plugins have been updated and 
now includes over 3000 classes and 80,000 documented features, and the 
versatile plugins have gained more new functions:

This release contains a few great enhancement for iOS development for our iOS 

First, we start with classes for using Google Ads inside your Xojo 
applications, e.g. GADMobileAdsMBS class. Beside doing in-app purchases with 
our StoreKit classes, this is a second way for you to monetize your 

Second, we got a new set of classes around PHPickerViewControllerMBS class to 
use the photo picker dialog on iOS. Your users can import photos, live photos 
or videos from their Photos library. No permissions dialog will come into the 
way as the user explicitly grants your application access to the selected 

Third, we got the VNDocumentCameraViewControllerMBS class to scan documents on 
the iOS device. The user can point with the camera on a document and the 
picture is taken, the page recognized and rectified. The pages are then 
transferred to your application.

Forth, we got a new ProgressHUDMBS class to show progress to the user. This can 
either be an indeterminate circle of dots to show something is going on. Or it 
can either be a circle or a bar to show progress for a determinate process.

Fifth, if you write a CallKit extension, you can use CXCallDirectoryManagerMBS 
class to manage it. This may include querying the status of the extension or to 
reload the data after an update.

After all the classes for iOS, we got enhancements for our MongoDB plugin: use 
the new MongoSessionMBS class to start a transaction, do a few changes to the 
database and commit them all together. When you are not in a transaction, all 
changes are automatically committed. 

The Windows Bluetooth classes got an upgrade with new events for 
WindowsBluetoothLEDeviceMBS class and new GetGattServicesAsync and 
GetGattServicesForUuidAsync methods.

For macOS we added hasDestructiveAction property to NSButtonMBS class, added 
new events for ContinuityCameraMBS class, added shouldRefetchContacts property 
to CNSaveRequestMBS class and new methods for NSCalendarMBS class. The 
OverlayMBS class can now work with a dialog on macOS and properties like 
AddedToDirectoryDateMBS and AddedToDirectoryDateTimeMBS for folderitems are now 

The FileListMBS class can now query directory content in a thread friendly way 
and thus can be cancelled if needed. The JSONMBS class got a 
AddOrReplaceItemToObject method. The XMLDocumentMBS class can now load XML 
thread friendly. JPEG handling got optimized with setjmp optimization, 

Finally we updated CURL to version 7.86.0, DynaPDF to, LCMS to 2.14, 
openssl to 1.1.1s, SQLAPI to 5.2.2, SQLite to 3.39.4 and Xcode to 14.0.1.
