NICKENICH, Germany (August 30th, 2007) — Monkeybread Software releases
version 7.5 of the MBS plug-in for REALbasic.

The MBS plug-in comprises a collection of several plug-in parts which
extend the REALbasic development environment with over 800 classes and 2
controls featuring over 16000 documented functions.

The plug-ins require REALbasic 5.5 or newer. Also required are 200 MB hard
disc space and around 16 MB of RAM in addition to the requirements of
REALbasic and your operation system itself. While all plug-in parts compile
on Mac OS 8.x, Mac OS 9.x, Mac OS X (universal), Linux and Windows, each
function may depend on additional system requirements to work successfully.

Plugin licenses are available for components or for the complete
collection. Starting at 20 Euro (+VAT) for one component.

If you buy a current license, you will get free updates for one year. After
that year, you can update your license to cover an additional year.
