DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.6

Send Article to a Friend

Paving the way for the upcoming release of Apple’s new operating system, DEVONtechnologies has updated all three editions of DEVONthink (Personal, Pro, and Pro Office) and DEVONnote to version 2.6 with support for OS X 10.9 Mavericks. In particular, DEVONthink and DEVONnote ensure that labels appear similarly to those in the Finder on Mavericks. Plus, tags and Spotlight comments can be imported and indexed. DEVONthink Pro Office also revises the Apple Mail plug-in for Mavericks compatibility.

Beyond future-proofing, DEVONnote and all three versions of DEVONthink provide support for importing Evernote notes (including names, tags, and dates), as well as importing references from the Bookends reference management app. DEVONthink introduces a new, HTML-based “formatted note” document type that can be viewed in any Web browser, supports Markdown and WYSIWYG editing, and is ready for the upcoming DEVONthink To Go 2 iOS app. All versions of DEVONthink also rearrange and tidy up many menus for clarity; improve synchronization reliability; create thumbnails of plain text, rich text, and HTML documents (if selected in preferences); add support for displaying and indexing WordPerfect documents; and fix contextual menu and drag-and-drop issues after Control-clicking. (All updates are free. DEVONthink Pro Office, $149.95 new, release notes; DEVONthink Professional, $79.95 new, release notes; DEVONthink Personal, $49.95 new, release notes; DEVONnote, $24.95 new, release notes; 25-percent discount for TidBITS members on DEVONnote and all editions of DEVONthink)
