Release notes

We release new versions of our applications on a regular basis. Every release comes with bug fixes and detail enhancements as well as very often also new features. Read here what has changed in the most recent version.

DEVONthink To Go 2.4.3

This maintenance release is all about synchronization. Version 2.4.3 adds synchronizing automatically when DEVONthink To Go is being put into the background and improves the reliability of the sync status indication. Downloading shallowly synchronized documents is more reliable, and DEVONthink To Go is more compatible to some WebDAV services. Further enhancements include basic authentification for bookmarks, better performance, and reduced memory usage.


  • When the app is going to the background and automatic synchronization is chosen a sync is performed if possible.
  • Basic authentification for bookmarks.


  • Plain text, Markdown, and markup documents no longer use smart quotes, smart dashes, and smart insert/delete behavior in the editor.
  • Improved compatibility of web views to, e.g., web pages using OAuth.
  • Improved performance of indexing documents containing a lot of text.
  • Improved responsiveness.
  • Reduced memory usage.
