DEVONtechnologies has updated its intelligent notebook application DEVONnote to version 1.8 and releases maintenance updates for the freeware service CalcService and the free services menu helper HotService. DEVONnote 1.8 includes a new option that allows to float DEVONnote main windows above all other windows, making dragging contents from other applications to a note easier. Links between notes or from a note to a file or folder can be created simply by drag-and-drop, and whole groups can be dragged to the Finder (requires Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger). Items can now also be sorted by comment, and the contextual menus of text views provide a convenient “See Selected Text” command that lists other notes in the database related to a selected text passage.
