Bietigheim-Bissingen (Germany, EU), 17th of June, 2002 — DEVONtechnologies
has updated it’s ServicePack 1, consisting of three top-rated freeware
tools: AntiWordService 1.0.1, CalcService 2.7 and WordService 2.3.1.

Thanks to overwhelming support from users from all over the world, the
latest version of CalcService now features a French and WordService 2.3.1
an Italian localisation as well as improvements in the German and Danish
localisations. CalcService 2.7 also comes with improved number formatting.
Last but not least, AntiWordService 1.0.1 now theoretically supports Word
documents without the proper file name extension “.doc”. Due to a bug in
Mac OS X up to version 10.1.5, this feature does not work yet, but but it
will as soon as the system works according to Apple’s documentation.

AntiWordService enables all well-behaved Cocoa applications able to read
plain text, for example TextEdit or DEVONthink Personal Edition, to open
Microsoft Word documents. CalcService and WordService insert new commands
into the Services submenu allowing to make simple calculations and reformat
text within any Cocoa application, for example TextEdit, Mail,
ProjectBuilder, OmniWeb or DEVONthink Personal Edition. CalcService
replaces a selected formula by the result of the calculation sending into retirement, and WordService provides a variety of 30
functions for converting, formatting, sorting or speaking text, inserting
the current date, time or folder contents, and showing statistics about
selected text.

AntiWordService, CalcService and WordService require Mac OS X 10.1.5 or
higher and are available as “ServicePack 1” or as separate files for free
download from
