Coeur d’Alene (Idaho, USA), 5th of October, 2006 —
DEVONtechnologies, LLC updates all its commercial applications: the
document and information managers DEVONthink Professional and
Personal, the Internet research agent and alternative Web browser
DEVONagent, and the intelligent notepad application DEVONnote.
DEVONthink Professional 1.2.1 features full screen editing of rich
text files with customizable background and foreground colors, allows
to manually rearrange the items in the Three Panes view, and
recognizes more plain text file types. Previous versions always
displayed rich text documents using the documents’ colors in full
screen mode. In addition, the new version improves CSV (comma
separated values) files import, URL handling as well as handling of
bugs in Mac OS X’s PDF engine. The improved advertisement filter used
by the built-in Web browser recognizes and blocks inline
advertisements of RSS feeds. The AppleScript support has also been
enhanced, some scripts have been overhauled, and the Automator
actions have been updated to use DEVONthink Professional’s log panel.
DEVONagent 2.0.3 also comes with the improved advertisement filter.
The Plugins & Scanners panel highlights groups with special plugins
for clarity and shows a help button that links to the according pages
in the online help. A number of plugins has been updated as well,
most scanner plugins have been optimized, and the Marketing search
set has been enhanced. Version 2.0.3 also removes more unimportant
words from the list of topics, and improves the URL handling.
DEVONthink Personal 1.9.8 “inherits” many improvements from its
Professional sibling, for example the support for “bookmarklets”, the
better advertisement filter, the enhanced full screen mode, and the
support for third-party QuickTime file types. Finally, DEVONnote
1.9.1 is a maintenance update that also brings many improvements of
the latest releases of DEVONthink to DEVONnote.
All four applications greatly benefit from recent improvements to the
underlying technology that make them faster and use less memory.
Again, all search operations, AI-based functions such as classify or
see-also, as well as many database operations have been sped up. All
releases also fix minor bugs and interface glitches, too.
All four applications require Mac OS X 10.3.9 later and a fast
Internet connection is strongly recommended for DEVONagent. All
updates are immediately available from www.devon-technologies.com.
They must be purchased after the evaluation period of 150
(DEVONthink, DEVONnote) or 60 (DEVONagent) hours of non-continuous
