DEVONthink Personal 2.11.2

This maintenance release addresses a sporadic crash when accessing the Preferences on macOS Mojave. We also fixed a few issues people had with Brother and Epson scanners. The URL of clippings from the Brave and Vivaldi web browsers is now captured and we improved the use of Spotlight importers. Additionally, we improved support for syncing files indexed in local Google Drive folders. The overall reliability has been the primary focus of this release.
