DEVONtechnologies has updated all three editions of its DEVONagent research software (Lite, Express, and Pro) to version 3.8.1. The Pro and Express editions now support Open Graph for matching HTML pages, enable you to skip Amazon search results while crawling, improve the reliability of the Twitter Accounts scanner, fix an incompatibility with DEVONthink 2.7.6 that caused delays, and improve the handling of background tasks. The Pro edition now executes many scripts in the background, adds a German localization, ensures the address bar is properly updated, and fixes support for RSS feeds using isPermaLink=false. All three editions also receive an update to the MacUpdate plug-in. (All updates are free.
