DEVONsphere Express 1.9.2

This release improves compatibility with macOS Mojave. It addresses some visual artifacts, as well as some incorrect autocompletion in the search field. General improvements include improved indexing of ePUB, Tinderbox, and textclipping files. We've re-enabled the use of 32-bit Spotlight importers for file formats like those from Microsoft Office, and added or enhanced some much needed VoiceOver support. DEVONsphere Express generates thumbnails now via new servers as the previous thumbnail service is shutting down.
