Mavericks, Encrypted Sync Stores, and Markdown

October 16, 2013 — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

We have just released DEVONthink (all editions) and DEVONnote 2.7 with great new features and improvements. DEVONthink 2.7 now encrypts all metadata and all contents stored in remote sync locations such as Dropbox, WebDAV, or AFP. No other document management app on the Mac gives you so much flexibility and control over you data!

DEVONthink 2.7 also improves its support for Markdown and formatted notes. Take notes with a single keyboard shortcut also as Markdown or, via the separate Sorter, as formatted note. Formatted notes are based on HTML you can edit them like rich text but also view them in any web browser.

The update fixes some severe sync issues with DEVONthink To Go, too. Finally all editions got user interface refinements, improve the overall reliability and the compatibility to e.g. Safari 6.x, and, of course, fixes bugs. We recommend the update to all users.

Note: The new encryption makes it necessary to clean your remote sync locations, e.g. on Dropbox, and re-upload your data. To clean your sync locations select them in the Preferences, Sync tab, and choose “Clean location” from the action menu.
