DEVONthink 2.9.5 and DEVONthink To Go 2.0.4

As with most major operating system releases, macOS Sierra and iOS 10 bring not only new features but also many under-the-hood changes. We have just released updates for all editions of DEVONthink as well as for DEVONnote and DEVONthink To Go. The maintenance releases for the Mac work around the multitude of issues introduced with Sierra’s overhauled PDF library, changes in Mail’s script support, and more. On iOS, DEVONthink To Go 2.0.4 fixes many issues related to memory and database management....

DEVONthink To Go 2.0.3 fixes ‘pending files’ issue

Version 2.0.2 of DEVONthink To Go which became available yesterday unveiled an issue that unfortunately didn’t surface even in our beta tests. In some situations it’s currently not possible to synchronize due to ‘pending files’. We have immediately sent a bug-fix release to Apple which is now waiting for Apple’s App Store review. If you experience this problem also on the Mac you can create a custom smart group searching for Instance is Pending and Instance is not Indexed and remove or update the pending items manually....

DEVONthink 2.9.3 and DEVONthink To Go 2.0.2

We know how important a robust sync is. And so here’s another maintenance release for both DEVONthink for Mac as well as DEVONthink To Go. We’ve made synchronizing to e.g. WebDAV or Dropbox up to 3.7 times faster. Direct connections via the local network are more reliable now too and during a sync you can see which database is being synchronized. On the Mac side DEVONthink now shows if there are unsynchronized changes and truncates sync location names in the middle instead of at...

DEVONthink 2.9.2 and DEVONthink To Go 2.0.1

Another week, another update for DEVONthink. But this time we also have an update for DEVONthink To Go too. We’ve worked hard to make the synchronization on both platforms even more robust and enjoyable. For example you can now again connect securely to your own WebDAV server with self-signed certificates. Both Mac and iOS versions come with detail enhancements too. On the Mac you can now quickly locate pending items by using smart groups or the advanced search, and sync all databases with one click.

DEVONthink 2.9.1 speeds up sync, fixes bugs

Two weeks ago we released DEVONthink 2.9 with our next-generation sync. Today there’s the first maintenance release for it with many improvements and bug fixes related to the synchronization. For example, downloading from sync stores is now up to 2.5 times faster than with the previous version. In addition DEVONthink Pro Office 2.9.1 allows you to select and delete ink annotations in PDF documents. We also taught all editions of DEVONthink a number of new new XML file name extensions and enhanced its drag-and-drop...

DEVONthink 2.9 is here with light-speed & super-safe sync

After three betas our next-generation sync has finally reached production status. Today we’ve released DEVONthink 2.9 with our completely rewritten synchronization. It’s built for speed, robustness and flexibility. It works both on the local network, with any removable volume, as well as with internet-based services such as Dropbox or WebDAV servers. Our next-generation sync is up to 688 times faster than DEVONthink 2.8 and up to 70 times faster than competing services. It uses less disk or cloud space and requires...

Next-generation sync now available as public beta

It’s no secret that we have been working for quite some time on a new sync technology (code name: “DEVONcloudy”, our little cloud). It replaces the Mac-to-Mac sync presently part of DEVONthink for Mac and will be the foundation of the upcoming DEVONthink To Go 2.0. The new sync uses direct network connections, WebDAV, or Dropbox to keep DEVONthink databases in sync between multiple Macs (and soon iOS devices). Exclusively on the Mac it can also use local sync stores, e.g. on file servers,...
