DEVONthink 2.9.1

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

DEVONtechnologies has updated all three editions of DEVONthink [1] (Personal, Pro, and Pro Office) to version 2.9.1 with improvements and bug fixes related to the new synchronization engine introduced in the previous version (see “DEVONthink/DEVONnote 2.9 [2],” 22 July 2016). All three editions now allow you to select and delete ink annotations in PDF documents, improve download speed from sync stores, support some new XML file name extensions, enable the content of DEVONagent searches to be indexed, improve Bonjour resolving, and fix an issue with inconsistent error messages. Note that DEVONnote, which typically receives updates along with DEVONthink, remains unchanged.

The company also released version 2.0 of its DEVONthink To Go [3] iOS app, which was rewritten from scratch to be faster and more robust, and to use the Mac version’s new synchronization engine. The new release supports direct connections via a local Wi-Fi network as well as via Dropbox and WebDAV servers, supports tags, enables direct data reorganization, and adds a rich text editor that supports editing and rendering of Markdown documents (see more details from this press release [4]).

DEVONthink To Go requires DEVONthink 2.9 or later and costs $14.99. A Pro Package in-app purchase of $4.99 unlocks additional features, including space-saving metadata-only sync, PDF annotations, viewing email messages, and tabular data. (All updates are free. DEVONthink Pro Office, $149.95 new, release notes [5]; DEVONthink Professional, $79.95 new, release notes [6]; DEVONthink Personal, $49.95 new, release notes [7]; 25 percent discount for TidBITS members [8] on all editions of DEVONthink; 10.9+)
