DEVONagent 3.9 introduces Inspectors, cleans up interface

New inspectors in DEVONagent 3.9

We have just updated all editions of DEVONagent. With version 3.9 we introduce a new Inspectors pane unifying several other panes. It gives you access to page properties, objects retrieved by scanners, and related pages. Properties include the author’s name, the page description, keywords, and more. The retrieved objects such as, e.g., links, images, videos, or RSS feeds are presented in actionable lists. The See Also Inspector shows you related pages from the archive, search runs, or retrieved from web search engines. Remove all search results...

DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.8.3

Today we have posted DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.8.3 to our website and to the App Store. The improved classification algorithm in version 2.8.3 improves the accuracy of all AI-based functionality: See also, classify, concordance, automatic grouping, and summarizing. Working with documents can hardly be easier. DEVONthink 2.8.3 now allows you to select and copy text from Quick-Look-based views. This includes e.g. Microsoft Office or OpenOffice documents. OpenOffice documents also open no longer internally but in their default application when you’re double-clicking them. The update adds...

DEVONagent 3.8.3 and DEVONsphere Express 1.8.2

Privacy matters, even if there are some large companies seeing things differently. DuckDuckGo is a search engine that claims that it doesn’t track its users and respects their privacy. And it delivers good search results, too. Reason enough for us to support it natively in all editions of DEVONagent 3.8.3. Other new features include a new preference option that stops search runs from the menu extra as soon as you open the first result. We have updated the Macintosh News search sets...

Black Friday and Cyber Monday at DEVONtechnologies

Black Friday

Thanksgiving is a special day for people in the United States. It’s the day that marks the beginning of the winter holiday season. Maybe the most wonderful time of the year. Families come back together and everyone is thankful for whatever good the year had in store for them. We as a company also want to take the opportunity to say thank you to our great customers and the amazing Mac community. So in line with the old tradition we...

Ready for Yosemite: DEVONagent 3.8.2 and more

DEVONagent Pro on OS X Yosemite

OS X Yosemite is peeking around the corner. Today we’ve released updates for DEVONagent Pro through Lite that get them ready for Apple’s newest iteration of its Mac operating system. In addition version 3.8.2 searches Baidu, the #1 search engine in China, and the Pro edition lets you easily share web content. Scanners in version 3.8.2 are more accurate and the new version better filters links to social media, e.g. retweets. We’ve posted an update for DEVONthink and DEVONnote, too. Version 2.8.1 fixes a few more incompatibilities, works...

Version 3.8.1 gives you even more accurate results, skips Amazon results, and comes with updated MacUpdate plugin and Twitter Accounts scanner. In addition, DEVONagent Pro 3.8.1 executes menu scripts in the background now. So they no longer interrupt your important research work. The update fixes an incompatibility to DEVONthink 2.7.6, too. We have also packaged the freeware CalcService, WordService, and BlueService services as applications. Install them like any other application and...

Markdown has become a popular way for adding simple formatting to text without relying on platform-specific file formats. DEVONthink already supported plain Markdown. Starting with version 2.7.5 it now renders MultiMarkdown, too. For DEVONagent 3.8 we have updated almost all plugins and made many of them language-aware. But that not all, of course. We’ve cleaned up menus in all apps for more clarity, improved their reliability, and fixed a few bugs. We recommend these free updates for DEVONnote and all editions of DEVONthink as...

Tuesday tip: Get started with tutorials and help files

DEVONthink and DEVONagent are extremely feature-rich and deep applications, harder to master than, say, a simple to-do list app. But they come with an extensive documentation and many slideshow and video tutorials for many everyday tasks from “How to set up a first database” to “How to use DEVONthink in a team”. We explain, e.g., the various options for sharing your knowledge, show you the pros and cons of importing vs. indexing, and give valuable tips. You can find the documentation...

DEVONagent updated also in the App Store

With todays update to version 3.5.2 we finally welcome DEVONagent Pro to the brave new world of sandboxing, now the prerequisite for distribution through the App Store. The update also cleans up some aspects of the user interface by hiding rarely used or unavailable options, and improves compatibility to some websites. The Download Manager adds the URL of downloaded items to their Finder/Spotlight metadata. Both DEVONagent Pro and Express 3.5.2 come with an updated “Tube” scanner which scans webpages for embedded media....
