DEVONtechnologies has updated all editions of its intelligent information and document manager DEVONthink, as well as the smart notebook DEVONnote.
Version 2.8.4 simplifies moving documents into the database, enhances smart groups, and improves performance and reliability. The updates are free and recommended for all users. The upgrade lets users move new documents to their databases more quickly. Dragging files or folders to the application with the Command modifier key pressed imports the items and trashes their originals in one go.
The release also enhances smart groups with new options for filtering by date. It supports new file types for bookmarks and plain text files. The AppleScript support in DEVONthink Pro and Pro Office features two new commands and runs database queries up to 50 times faster.
DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.8.4 retain tags when splitting documents. All parts are tagged the same and are no longer placed into the inbox but next to their original. The Activity panel informs about the progress of lengthy tasks in more detail.
All editions of DEVONthink as well as DEVONnote require Mac OS X 10.7.5 or later (in the Mac App Store: OS X 10.9 or later). They can be downloaded from www.devontechnologies.com and be test-driven for free before they need to be properly licensed. DEVONthink Personal and DEVONnote are also available in the App Store; DEVONthink can be purchased in bundles with DEVONagent for a bundle price in DEVONtechnologies’ online shop.
Pricing is: DEVONthink Pro Office: US$149.95; DEVONthink Pro: $79.95; DEVONthink Personal: $49.95 (Mac App Store: $49.99), and DEVONnote: $24.95 (Mac App Store).
