Five things you could want for Christmas

Personally I have no affection to consumption binge, but Christmas time is also a season where we have some more time to devote to the things we wanted to do all the rest of the year — including, maybe, updating our software library, organizing our workspace, and reading books.

DEVONthink 2.0 spotlight: Multiple databases and more

We’re just preparing beta 4 for our tireless beta testers with many minor changes including the new icon set.
