DEVONtechnologies has released an update for all editions of its information and document manager DEVONthink as well as for its smart notebook app DEVONnote.

The apps have been optimized for OS X 10.9 Mavericks and bring new features such as HTML-based formatted notes and support for Markdown. The updates are free and recommended for all users. In addition DEVONtechnologies cleaned up many menus of both DEVONthink and DEVONnote up for clarity, made synchronizing DEVONthink databases  more reliable, and enhanced the integration with the Open With mechanism of OS X. Finally, this release also improves many other areas of the application and brings important bug fixes.

DEVONthink and DEVONnote require an Intel-based Mac and OS X 10.6.8 or later. They can be downloaded from and be test-driven for free before they need to be properly licensed. DEVONthink Personal and DEVONnote are also available via the Mac App Store.
