DEVONthink, DEVONnote get updates

DEVONtechnologies, LLC releases free updates for
all editions of its information manager
DEVONthink as well as for the intelligent
note-keeper DEVONnote re-introducing
Image-Capture-based scan support and other new
features.

While the whole team is focused on the
development of DEVONthink 2.0, further
maintenance updates for the 1.x line of
DEVONthink and DEVONnote have been released
today, the most prominent improvement being the
re-introduction of the Image Capture based scan
module that broke due to changes in Mac OS X 10.5
‘Leopard’.

DEVONthink Pro Office 1.5.3 users now have the
choice between the built-in scan function and
ExactScan Capture allowing them to connect to
both Image Capture compliant scanners and via
TWAIN drivers. In addition, the original scan
module supports document feeders and grayscale
scanning now. The ExactScan Capture module and
the embedded IRIS OCR engine have been updated,
too, improving compatibility especially to Epson
scanners and fixing glitches such as the ‘blurry
images’ problem.

Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann, DEVONtechnologies’
President: “The problems we had with the
unexpected and undocumented changes in Leopard
were annoying for our users. So we’re glad we
were finally able to fix them. Now DEVONthink Pro
Office users can connect to both worlds, Image
Capture and TWAIN, giving them maximum freedom of
choice for their scanners: from flatbed to
document scanners and the Fujitsu ScanSnap.”

In addition, both DEVONthink Pro and Pro Office
1.5.3 add a new global script for capturing
abstracts from DEVONagent, come with improvements
for handling RSS feeds, and enhance the display
of sheets. Finally, all three editions of
DEVONthink as well as DEVONnote better support
the Camino web browser, create and update the
Spotlight cache faster, and feature an improved
inline advertisement filter. ‘.mdwn’ files are
imported as plain text files and the online help
has been made easier accessible.

“We’re fully focused on finishing DEVONthink 2.0
but we will continue to deliver important
maintenance updates for 1.x users until version
2.0 is ready,” remarks Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann. He
continues: “Consequently, everyone who buys any
edition of DEVONthink or DEVONnote today will
also receive a free upgrade to DEVONthink or
DEVONnote 2.0 when they are released later this
year.”
