DEVONtechnologies has updated all three editions of its DEVONagent research software (Lite, Express, and Pro) to version 3.9.1. All three add plug-ins for searching Stack Overflow and GitHub, and the Express and Pro editions also add a recipe scanner that filters results for contained cooking recipes (with support for microdata, RDFa and microformats). DEVONagent Express and Pro also improve HTML-to-text conversion, handling of background tasks, and compatibility with invalid BASE URLs of Web pages. The Pro edition also gains an improved email scanner (which recognizes email addresses in HTML metadata) and better exporting to DEVONthink (adding application name and version, the name of the search set, and the search query to the comments). (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. 10.7.5+)
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the TidBITS Content Network for Apple consultants.
