Ready for OS X Yosemite: DEVONagent 3.8.2 (and DEVONthink 2.8.1)
Coeur d'Alene (Idaho, USA), October 16th, 2014. — DEVONtechnologies, LLC updates all editions of its smart research assistant DEVONagent for OS X Yosemite with new features and interface adjustments. DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.8.1 bring important bug fixes. The updates are free and recommended for all users.
The update to version 3.8.2 gets all editions of DEVONagent ready for OS X Yosemite. Interface adjustments and other fixes make them compatible to Apple's newest Mac operating system.
All editions of DEVONagent now also search Baidu, the #1 search engine in China. DEVONagent Pro lets users share web content via the Mac's native share mechanism on OS X Mountain Lion or later. Web addresses are named and displayed more user-friendly for a better research experience. For better highlighting and more accurate summaries DEVONagent Pro now uses a secondary search term if entered.
Scanners in version 3.8.2 are more accurate. Some overhauled scanner plugins return better results and are more reliable. Scanners in DEVONagent are plugins that filter results by formal criteria. For example they return only thumbnail galleries or pages with embedded videos. The new version also better filters links to social media, e.g. retweets.
All editions of DEVONthink as well as DEVONnote have received maintenance updates, too. Version 2.8.1 fixes a few more incompatibilities to the latest public beta of OS X Yosemite. It also works better with user-installed Spotlight plugins and imports incompatible files as generic items.
DEVONthink Pro Office 2.8.1 automatically reinstalls its Apple Mail plugin if necessary also on German and French systems. Finally, DEVONtechnologies has also increased the trial limit for imported email messages. Users can now import up to 1,000 messages per day when test-driving the app.
All updates come also with further improvements, are more reliable, and fix some bugs.
"Google, Bing, and DuckDuckGo are great search engines and easy to use. If one is serious about research, however, and wants to make sure to catch everything about a subject, then there's DEVONagent Pro. This new version returns even more accurate results, filters superfluous links, and creates precise summaries. Just what a good assistant does: help you get the job done." comments Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann, President of DEVONtechnologies.
