DEVONthink 2.11

14. Dezember 2018 — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

Coeur d’Alene, Idaho - DEVONtechnologies updates its smart document and information manager DEVONthink with push notifications for faster synchronization, support for JSON news feeds, and improved drag-and-drop with other applications. All four editions also receive additional improvements and bug fixes. The updates are free and recommended for all users.

DEVONthink is DEVONtechnologies’ document and information management solution for the Mac. It supports a large variety of file formats and stores them in a database enhanced by artificial intelligence (AI). Many document formats can be directly viewed and edited, PDFs annotated. DEVONnote is DEVONthink’s little sibling with a reduced feature set targeted at users with notetaking-centric needs.

Sophisticated organization tools, AI-based techniques that handle even the largest collections, and numerous integration options make DEVONthink the work environment of choice for researchers, lawyers, and educators. With its fast, reliable, and secure synchronization users keep their data available on all their Macs and iOS devices. DEVONthink To Go for iPad and iPhone completes the DEVONthink ecosystem.

  • Keep your data together in one place
  • Scan your paper, archive your email
  • Let artificial intelligence help you file your data
  • Sync your data to all your devices, fast and secure
  • Share your data with anyone, whether they use Mac or PC

New in DEVONthink 2.11:

The latest update for DEVONthink adds push notifications to the synchronization. Whenever users make changes to their databases on their Mac, iPad, or iPhone, notifications are sent to their other devices. This decreases the amount of time before changes are available on all devices and enables iOS devices to pull the new data in the background.

DEVONthink 2.11 now supports JSON feeds in addition to RSS, RDF, and Atom feeds. This integrates relevant news sources directly into the work environment of, e.g., researches, students, journalists, or lawyers.

Also in this release, dragging text selections includes the reference URL of the source document, and DEVONthink Pro Office’s metadata entry window features new contextual menu options. Workspaces can be easier updated, and formatted notes and web archives keep their custom icons when saving changes. Updating an encryption key for a sync location now prompts the user what to do if they have already synced to it.

Finally, version 2.11 improves the reliability of using Spotlight importers on macOS Mojave, better names files created by dragging pages from the PDF sidebar to the Finder, and enhances the built-in web server of DEVONthink Pro Office. The Support Assistant is now loaded live and uses styled, longer tips.

“We honor our users privacy and their choice of cloud services. The push notifications that we introduce with this release make keeping data synchronized across multiple devices a much more natural experience without compromising flexibility and confidentiality. As a bonus they let us wake up DEVONthink To Go in the background and receive the changes. Of course, we keep the data that we need to accomplish this as small as possible, and fully anomymized”, comments Eric Bohnisch-Volkmann, DEVONtechnologies’ President.

DEVONnote 2.11 receives the relevant enhancements and bug fixes from its siblings, too.
