DEVONthink/DEVONnote 2.8.1

DEVONtechnologies has updated all three editions of DEVONthink (Personal, Pro, and Pro Office) and DEVONnote to version 2.8.1 to improve compatibility of user-installed Spotlight plug-ins and fix superfluous title extension additions when syncing DEVONthink To Go. The three editions of DEVONthink now import incompatible, unsupported, or damaged image files as unknown files, fix a crash that occurred with the scanner/camera interface after displaying or editing images, ensures compatibility with AVI movies imported from Canon cameras, and fix several unspecified localization glitches. DEVONthink Pro Office also reinstalls a disabled Apple Mail plug-in automatically on German and French localizations and fixes an incompatibility with the Apple Mail plug-in on OS X 10.7 Lion and 10.8 Mountain Lion systems. (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+)
