Ready for El Capitan: DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.8.6

Markdown with images in DEVONthinkOS X El Capitan became just available as public beta. Right in time, DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.8.6 bring important compatibility changes for it. In addition, DEVONthink 2.8.6 supports images referenced in Markdown documents. When importing Bookends references, DEVONthink imports their keywords too. PDF text annotations created by other applications keep their appearance. They are only restyled as soon as you edit them with DEVONthink.

For Calendar events dropped into rich text documents both DEVONthink and DEVONnote add a back link, too. Reminder: You could already add files and contact cards to RTFs in earlier versions. Also, version 2.8.6 adds a placeholder for the name of the top group that you can place into templates.

Of course, DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.8.6 bring further usability enhancements as well as important bug fixes too.
