DEVON Updates

Autumn Updates For Devonthink, Devonagent And Devonnote

DEVONtechnologies, LLC updates all its commercial applications: the document and information managers DEVONthink Professional and Personal, the Internet research agent and alternative Web browser DEVONagent, and the intelligent notepad application DEVONnote.

DEVONthink Professional 1.2.1 features full screen editing of rich text files with customizable background and foreground colors, allows to manually rearrange the items in the Three Panes view, and recognizes more plain text file types. Previous versions always displayed rich text documents using the documents' colors in full screen mode. In addition, the new version improves CSV (comma separated values) files import, URL handling as well as handling of bugs in Mac OS X's PDF engine. The improved advertisement filter used by the built-in Web browser recognizes and blocks inline advertisements of RSS feeds. The AppleScript support has also been enhanced, some scripts have been overhauled, and the Automator actions have been updated to use DEVONthink Professional's log panel.

DEVONagent 2.0.3 also comes with the improved advertisement filter. The Plugins & Scanners panel highlights groups with special plugins for clarity and shows a help button that links to the according pages in the online help. A number of plugins has been updated as well, most scanner plugins have been optimized, and the Marketing search set has been enhanced. Version 2.0.3 also removes more unimportant words from the list of topics, and improves the URL handling. DEVONthink Personal 1.9.8 "inherits" many improvements from its Professional sibling, for example the support for "bookmarklets", the better advertisement filter, the enhanced full screen mode, and the support for third-party QuickTime file types. Finally, DEVONnote 1.9.1 is a maintenance update that also brings many improvements of the latest releases of DEVONthink to DEVONnote.

All four applications greatly benefit from recent improvements to the underlying technology that make them faster and use less memory. Again, all search operations, AI-based functions such as classify or see-also, as well as many database operations have been sped up. All releases also fix minor bugs and interface glitches, too.

All four applications require Mac OS X 10.3.9 later and a fast Internet connection is strongly recommended for DEVONagent. All updates are immediately available from www.devon-technologies.com. They must be purchased after the evaluation period of 150 (DEVONthink, DEVONnote) or 60 (DEVONagent) hours of non-continuous runtime.

Everything is digital today. But where to store all these e-mails, PDFs, Word documents, images and multimedia files you accumulate every day? How to organize them, and find the right one when one needs it?

DEVONthink is the solution for the digital age, the one database for all your documents. And it's flexible. It adapts to your personal needs. Use it as your document repository, your filing cabinet, your e-mail archive or your project organizer. Collect and organize data from the web for a publication, enrich it with sound and movie files, and export everything as a web site, drag it to an Apple Pages document for publishing in print, or copy it to your iPod.

The Database for the Internet Age:

DEVONthink keeps important data in one database, regardless where the data is physically located. It integrates both local documents and live content from the Internet to keep, e.g., all project-related information together. DEVONthink seamlessly mixes local documents, clippings and live web pages.

DEVONthink is not only a simple database, it's a flexible work environment with powerful management features. It provides its users with all the tools they need for effectively working with documents. They can use the integrated RTF editor to write new documents, or open them in a third party application.

Intelligent Assistant:

DEVONthink is based on a powerful AI architecture that helps organize and navigate the information collection. It assists the user with filing documents and with finding similar items. It's easy to master even huge data collections with a few simple clicks.
