DEVONagent Lite, Express, and Pro 3.9

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

DEVONtechnologies has updated all three editions of its DEVONagent [1] research software (Lite, Express, and Pro) to version 3.9. DEVONagent Pro gets the most attention with the addition of a new Inspectors pane, which unifies several previous panes to provide access to page properties, objects retrieved by scanners, and related pages. The update also improves the See Also algorithm to be more precise and deliver more useful summaries, enables you to remove all search results from a selected domain via a menu command (Data > Delete Domain), and adds support for .webhistory and .webbookmark bookmark files. Both the Pro and Express editions now support importing Safari 8.x history and update the Linked Audio/Video Files scanners to support embedded streams and videos (they’ve also been renamed to Audio/Video Files). All three editions now use HTTPS for all Google plug-ins and provide workarounds for memory management issues. (All updates are free. DEVONagent Lite, free, release notes [2]; DEVONagent Express, $4.95 new, release notes [3]; DEVONagent Pro, $49.95 new with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members [4], release notes [5]. 10.7.5+)
