DEVONagent Lite, Express, and Pro 3.7

Send Article to a Friend

DEVONtechnologies has updated all three editions of its DEVONagent research software (Lite, Express, and Pro) to version 3.7. DEVONagent Pro receives a new scanner plug-in that not only searches Twitter but also scans found pages for links containing Twitter IDs and reports them. Additionally, the Pro edition improves how it highlights selected items in lists, fixes minor issues with URL handling with regard to OS X 10.9 Mavericks, and fixes the handling of filenames that begin with a tilde (~) by various Automator actions. All three editions also receive an updated Tube scanner (which brings back compatibility with YouTube), updated search sets (including “Marketing,” “Macintosh News (Latest),” and “Macintosh News (More)”), updated plug-ins (the JSTOR and SEC references and the Technorati blog), and improvements to the French localization. (All updates are free. DEVONagent Lite, free, release notes; DEVONagent Express, $4.95 new, release notes; DEVONagent Pro, $49.95 new with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members, release notes)
