DEVONAGENT 2.2 — WORKSPACES, BONJOUR, AND MANY IMPROVEMENTS
Coeur d’Alene (Idaho, USA), August 9, 2007 — DEVONtechnologies, LLC
releases version 2.2 of DEVONagent, its intelligent Web research tool and
alternative Web browser.
DEVONagent 2.2 allows the user to save the addresses of all currently open
web pages in a ‘workspace’ that can be recalled at any time later. This
way, the user can create specialized workspaces for various browser-centric
tasks such as news reading or database work. Also, DEVONagent shows the
available web services advertised on the local network through Bonjour in
the Go menu, the bookmarks drawer, and gives access to both workspaces and
Bonjour services via the Dock menu. The Bonjour integration makes it easy
to access, for example, shared DEVONthink Pro Office databases or other
devices present on the local network. The Go menu and the bookmarks drawer
use web page icons, too, to make it easier for the user to find the
bookmark she or he is looking for.
A new search engine plugin for Apple’s Cocoa Dev mailing list has been
added, several other plugins have been improved, and all scanner plugins
got a major internal overhaul. DEVONagent now much more reliably recognizes
thumbnail galleries, wallpapers (desktop pictures), news feeds,
downloadable files, multimedia files, email addresses as well as Office
documents. The new XML-based Office file formats are supported, too.
In addition, Finnish, Swedish and Polish have been added to the language
filter, and the other available languages have been extended and revised.
DEVONagent 2.2 follows links of matching items of news feeds, too, comes
with a stronger advertisement filter as well as better filtering of social
bookmarking services. Finally, the Dashboard widget has been completely
redesigned, the overall performance has been improved, and some minor
glitches have been fixed.
