DEVONthink 2.5 is Here with Syncing and Web Sharing

February 28, 2013 — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

Using multiple computers, working from different places, sharing data with coworkers: In today's highly connected world it’s essential to always have access to the latest data. And because we know that, of course, we worked hard on creating the most versatile yet robust synchronization technology and rewriting the build-in web server of DEVONthink Pro Office.

All editions of DEVONthink 2.5 synchronize databases between multiple computers and locations either directly or via Dropbox, WebDAV, file servers, or just any mountable disk. The new web server gives your PC and Linux colleagues access to the databases you want to share with them directly through their favorite web browser. And if you're still fighting the paper flood you will like the enhancements we have made to the scan feature.

Don't miss our screencasts that explain step-by-step how these great new feature work. 13 minutes well spent! Watch them directly from inside the app in the Support Assistant (Help > Tutorials).

Important: If you used previous public betas of the sync technology you need to delete your existing sync stores before using the final version. Please simply delete the sync store folder on your file server, WebDAV drive or on Dropbox. Visit the Dropbox website, navigate to the folder "Apps" and delete sync store folder there. It is named "DEVONthink" or has the name extension ".dtSyncStore". If you haven't excluded the sync store from synchronizing via the Dropbox app you can delete it from the Dropbox folder on your computer, too.
