It may seem too soon to talk about another fantastic Monkeybread plugin included with Omegabundle for Xojo 2018, but this is another case of fantastic connectivity.

MBS Bluetooth Plugin for Xojo
Not only does Monkeybread now have a MBS Bluetooth Plugin for Xojo but has also published a very interesting article on how it was implemented.

This plugin is now a part of the MBS Complete Plugin, included in Omegabundle for Xojo 2018.

Check out the article. This plugin will also be featured in the forthcoming MBS Xojo Conference September 6th and 7th.

If you are a Raspberry PI developer targeting ARM7 and Debian based Raspbian, you are in luck.

Valentina includes new distribution options for deploying your applications and Valentina Server on the Raspberry PI platform. Raspberry PI is a low power hardware platform based around an ARM processor which can run various operating systems. Following the licensing style of Valentina application developer kits, Linux based licenses will automatically work on Raspberry PI for shipping platforms. The Linux compatible versions of Valentina Server, Valentina DB ADK and Valentina Reports ADK have new implementations for deploying applications on the platform.

Your Linux licenses for Valentina DB ADK for Xojo and Valentina Reports ADK for Xojo will work with our ARM based versions. In addition, if you select the Linux version of Valentina Server, that also will run on ARM based Raspbian / Debian.

DynaPDF Starter lets you create PDF files with your applications on Mac, Windows and Linux with Xojo.

Monkeybread DynaPDF Starter Plugin
Anyone who needs to create PDF files on client / server systems, requires a PDF library that can deal with current PDF files in the future. The PDF format was greatly extended in recent years and the development does never end. A PDF library must keep pace with this development but it is almost impossible to implement all new features immediately after the publication of a new version of PDF. Therefore, a PDF library should ensure that new features do not lead to errors or even data loss. MBS DynaPDF Starter Plugin is well supported and regularly updated, ensuring that your apps can generate professional PDF documents.

Although DynaPDF Starter Plugin is not included with MBS Complete Plugin, it is included with Omegabundle for Xojo 2018!

GuancheMOS is the preferred serial number creation and validation Engine plug-in for commercial applications made with Xojo, and it is included in Omegabundle for Xojo 2018!

GuancheMOS Plugin for Xojo 2018
GuancheMOS allows Xojo macOS, Windows, Linux and Web developers to include in their applications the ability to generate and validate unique serial numbers or license keys with a minimum effort and a minimum footprint in their final executables.

By using this plug-in, Xojo developers will be able also to create their own apps for the automated assignment and control of serial numbers in a per-application basis. Of course the main purpose of GuancheMOS is the integration of the serial validation process in the final apps with the simple call to a function.

Registered users of GuancheMOS can use the plug-in in all their applications without paying additional fees!

MBS Plugin Complete added Gestures support on mac OS in release 18.2 which came out May 22 in 2018.

Gestures for mac OS
New CanvasGesturesMBS class allows you to generically capture gestures on a canvas. This includes swipe, rotate and magnify gestures and now allows you to use standard Canvas to catch them instead of using a NSViewControlMBS control.

Consider the following gestures in the Viewer or Canvas in Final Cut Pro 7 to get an idea what is possible:


  • Scroll (two-finger): Scrubs the playhead left or right. This gesture is supported on all standard trackpads and Multi-Touch trackpads, and as such is not strictly a Multi-Touch gesture.
  • Swipe (three-finger): Swipe up to move the playhead to the beginning of the clip or sequence. Swipe down to move the playhead to the end of the clip or sequence. Swipe left or right to move the playhead to the previous or next edit point.
  • Pinch: Pinch closed to zoom out of the window. Pinch open to zoom in to the window.
  • Rotate: Rotate left or right to scrub the playhead left or right.
