DEVONthink 2.9.13 improves decluttering service and Markdown support

Coeur d'Alene (Idaho, USA), July 6th, 2017. — DEVONtechnologies today releases version 2.9.13 of all editions of its intelligent information and document manager DEVONthink as well as its smart notebook DEVONnote. They let their users quickly capture data without interrupting their workflow. All documents are stored and can be worked with in a single place with a unique AI assisting users in getting the most out of their information collection. Version 2.9.13 enhances the decluttering service, rearranges a few menu commands for clarity, and improves importing bookmarks from Google Chrome and references from Bookends. The update lets Markdown documents reference scripts with relative or absolute links and improves the overall reliability and performance, too.

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.

Use DEVONthink to:

  • 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

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. DEVONthink To Go for iPad and iPhone completes the DEVONthink ecosystem.

New in DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.9.13

Version 2.9.13 of DEVONthink uses an enhanced version of DEVONtechnologies' decluttering service when clipping articles from web sites as archives or Markdown documents. The service works more reliably with web pages reporting a wrong encoding, uses HTML5 ARTICLE tags and ROLE attributes to detect the main article, and better cleans up unrelated elements.

The update also rearranges a few menu commands for clarity and improves importing bookmarks from Google Chrome. Users in the scientific fields can copy references now also from Bookends purchased in the Mac App Store. And when sending notes via the Services menu from the Roccat web browser to DEVONthink the URL of the frontmost browser window is captured, too. Markdown enthusiasts will like that they can now reference scripts with relative or absolute links. 

"Markdown is a very simple yet powerful format for storing information without relying on proprietary technology. Our now further improved decluttering service lets our users quickly clip articles from the web as clean, ad-free Markdown. And the new ability to link to JavaScript scripts inside a DEVONthink database makes it possible to, e.g., spice up Markdown documents with mathematical formulas by using Math libraries. The possibilities are endless", comments Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann, President of DEVONtechnologies.

Indexing files and folders, contrary to fully importing them into the database, makes it possible to, e.g., keep them on a shared server and synchronize only the database that references them. Version 2.9.13 enhances support for this scenario by marking existing indexed items automatically as not pending and by updating indexed images, PDFs, and audio and video files smarter so that they don't trigger unnecessary sync runs. DEVONthink 2.9.13 also stronger encrypts local connections for synchronizing between Macs and handles indexed items on currently unmounted servers more reliably.

DEVONnote, DEVONthink's little brother, gets basic support for the Roccat web browser, too, opens links, images, and frames in tabs more reliably, and verifies databases faster. Finally, all updates bring also bug fixes and improve the overall reliability and performance of DEVONthink and DEVONnote.
