DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.8.7 with El Capitan updates & more
Coeur d'Alene (Idaho, USA), October 15th, 2015. — DEVONtechnologies, LLC updates all editions of its intelligent information and document manager DEVONthink as well as the smart notebook DEVONnote. Version 2.8.7 brings compatibility changes for OS X El Capitan, a faster and more reliable synchronization, and improved Evernote import. The updates are free and recommended for all users.
OS X El Capitan is out and DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.8.7 add some necessary changes for it. In addition the built-in synchronization both between Macs and from Mac to iOS has been overhauled for reliability and speed. Importing or indexing files is up to twice as fast as in previous versions. DEVONthink 2.8.7 improves taking over notes from Evernote by grouping attachments and cross-linking them. It imports all images regardless how they were originally created by Evernote.
Other improvements in DEVONthink 2.8.7 include more comfortable navigation within PDF documents, better PDF printing, and fullscreen support for videos from web views. The extension of text files containing tabular data is no longer changed which increases the compatibility to third-party applications. Rebuilding databases retains all dates and directly imported email messages, e.g. dragged into DEVONthink, support additional metadata. An automatically updated user agent string improves compatibility to modern websites on OS X Yosemite and El Capitan. Finally, the Markdown and SkimNotes engines have been updated to their latest versions.
The updates also bring further internal optimizations and bug fixes that improve their performance and reliability.
"DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.8.7 bring the usual compatibility fixes that are necessary when Apple releases a major new version of OS X. But that's not enough for us so we added an update for both Mac and iOS syncs as well as better import from Evernote. It's a multi-device multi-app world and every release of DEVONthink and DEVONnote will bring more improvements here to make it easy to keep your documents at hand at all times," comments Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann, President of DEVONtechnologies.
