DEVONtechnologies has updated all three editions of DEVONthink (Personal, Pro, and Pro Office) and DEVONnote to version 2.7.7, adding recognition of source code files from Apple’s new Swift programming language (for more on Swift, see Michael Cohen’s “Swift: Who Is Apple’s New Programming Language For?,” 12 June 2014). The three editions of the DEVONthink document and information manager also improve the speed and reliability of importing and indexing files; retain more metadata in exported documents; pre-fill the Save panel with tags (when running OS X 10.9 Mavericks); ensure that scroll position, insertion mark position, and selection are retained when toggling views; scale images in new formatted notes or notes imported from Evernote; and work around unspecified issues with the Yosemite Public Beta. All editions of DEVONthink and DEVONnote now require 10.7.5 Lion at minimum if purchased from the DEVONtechnologies Web site. If you purchased DEVONthink Personal or DEVONnote from the Mac App Store, 10.8.3 Mountain Lion or later is required. Note, however, that both of those Mac App Store titles have yet to be updated to version 2.7.7 as of this writing. (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 all editions of DEVONthink and DEVONnote. 10.7.5+)
