DEVONthink 2.9.5 & DEVONthink To Go 2.0.4
Coeur d'Alene (Idaho, USA), October 6th, 2016. — DEVONtechnologies LLC updates all editions of its intelligent information and document manager DEVONthink as well as its iOS counterpart DEVONthink To Go with compatibility changes for Apple's latest operating systems. The new releases also improve the overall reliabilty and performance. All updates are free and recommended for all users.
The updates to DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.9.5 improve compatibility to macOS Sierra. They fix issues related to Sierra's new PDF library, changes in Mail's script support, and more. In addition all four editions allow to restore previously dismissed alerts and to tab through date fields in the Info panel. Notifications have thumbnails now and videos can be zoomed also to 50 or 25 percent. DEVONthink 2.9.5 recognizes MPEG-2 transport stream videos now too.
DEVONthink To Go 2.0.4 fixes minor issues with iOS 10 as well as many issues related to memory and database management. The new version is also more responsive in everyday use. Hardware keyboard shortcuts for common functionality make the app faster to use on an iPad. Users clipping data from e.g. Safari or other apps can now send any file to DEVONthink To Go. Clip to DEVONtink also remembers the last used database. Markdown users will like the new MultiMarkdown renderer including support for links and custom CSS. Finally, it's now possible to duplicate or trash items from smart groups which makes organizing on the go more comfortable.
Furthermore, both DEVONthink 2.9.5 and DEVOthink To Go 2.0.4 improve the synchronization reliability and performance. Synchronizing uses less disk space, less memory, and less bandwidth. It also also handles interrupted transfers better and cleans sync stores up to 13 times faster.
Mac users can now choose a shorter synchronization interval of one minute. On macOS Sierra DEVONthink 2.9.5 prevents users from creating or synchronizing databases in the Documents folder or on the Desktop if these locations are uploaded to iCloud Drive.
