After releasing seven public beta versions in the last five months (starting with “DEVONthink 3.0 Public Beta,” 29 April 2019), DEVONtechnologies has issued the official release of DEVONthink 3.0 that irons out rough spots in the evolving upgrade to the information management app. As a reminder, the new DEVONthink now sports a single-window interface with a sidebar for quick access to databases, favorites, smart groups, smart rules, filters, and a new reading list. The redesigned Sorter also makes it easier to capture text, audio, and voice notes, screenshots, or Web clippings.
Changes since the last public beta release include support for viewing and editing PDF note annotations in macOS 10.15 Catalina without using the Annotations panel, improved HTML parser reliability in the Clip to DEVONthink browser extension, display of iCloud uploading progress when syncing, and improved handling of indexed items by resolving alias data when possible. The app also resolves an issue where edits made to Finder comments in the Annotations & Reminders inspector weren’t always saved, fixes a bug where searching in PDF documents in 10.14 Mojave didn’t support diacritics, and corrects issues when pasting links from various sources, such as Google Chrome.
DEVONthink 3.0 is available in three editions, with the standard DEVONthink 3 replacing the previous DEVONthink 2 Personal and Pro editions and DEVONthink 3 Pro and Server editions replacing the DEVONthink 2 Pro Office edition. All three current editions now require macOS 10.11.5 El Capitan or later.
The standard version of DEVONthink 3 costs $99, with DEVONthink Pro 3 priced at $199 and DEVONthink Server 3 at $499. Upgrade discounts are available for those with previous licenses purchased either directly from DEVONtechnologies or via third-party promotions. ($99 new for DEVONthink, $199 for DEVONthink Pro, and $499 for DEVONthink Server with a 15% discount for TidBITS members; upgrade pricing available; 93.3 MB; macOS 10.11.5+)
