DEVONtechnologies has updated all three editions of its DEVONagent research software (Lite, Express, and Pro) to version 3.8, updating nearly all of its plug-ins while also adding a language-aware “Shopping > Amazon” plug-in and a submenu that provides quicker access to recently used plug-ins and search sets. DEVONagent Express and Pro also add support for JSON-based plug-ins and search results from search engines in JSON format, improve the recognition of inactive results in the menu extra, add support for VoiceOver search results, and add support for Yahoo. On its own, DEVONagent Pro adds support for language-specific keywords entered in the address bar of browser windows (if available), brings support for FTP on OS X 10.9 Mavericks, and enables the optional UserAgent plug-in key to specify the HTTP user agent. (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. 10.6.8+)
Untrash the Trash
Feeling trasher's remorse? On Snow Leopard, you can open the Trash (click the Trash icon in the Dock) and "untrash" individual items there. Select one or more trashed items (files and folders) and choose File > Put Back. This returns the items to where they were when you originally put them in the trash. The keyboard shortcut is Command-Delete - the same as the shortcut for trashing an item in the first place, since in deleting something from the trash you are untrashing it.
