DEVONagent 3.8.3 and DEVONsphere Express 1.8.2

December 10, 2014 — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

Privacy matters, even if there are some large companies seeing things differently. DuckDuckGo popup: true is a search engine that claims that it doesn’t track its users and respects their privacy. And it delivers good search results, too. Reason enough for us to support it natively in all editions of DEVONagent popup: true 3.8.3.

Other new features include a new preference option that stops search runs from the menu extra as soon as you open the first result. We have updated the Macintosh News search sets as well as the Facebook Profiles plugin. For results without proper date information DEVONagent searches their plain text for usable dates.

Version 1.8.2 of DEVONsphere Express, our context-sensitive assistant, retrieves Finder comments and handles damaged file systems better. It also imports damaged or incompatible Word documents differently. These files could otherwise bloat the index and increase memory usage.

All updates fix bugs, are faster, and more reliable. We recommend these free updates to all users. Get the new versions directly by using the apps’ update function (if available) or visit our Download page popup: true.
