DEVONtechnologies has updated all three editions of its DEVONagent research software (Lite, Express, and Pro) to version 3.9.2, offering improved compatibility with the public beta of OS X 10.11 El Capitan, improved memory management, and a fix for a crash that occurred after changing the system appearance. The Express and Pro editions improve HTML 5 support of Video and Audio scanners, HTML-to-text conversion, filtering of links to social bookmarking, and communication with background tasks. DEVONagent Pro 3.9.2 now displays the title of online PDF documents in Web views (if available), adds support for eight concurrent downloads in the Download manager (10.10.3 Yosemite or later), improves clipping of non-HTML documents, and fixes glitches in the History menu.
