Release notes

We release new versions of our applications on a regular basis. Every release comes with bug fixes and detail enhancements as well as very often also new features. Read here what has changed in the most recent version.

DEVONthink To Go 2.5.1

This maintenance release enhances Clip to DEVONthink and the app security introduced with version 2.5. It makes synchronizing via sync stores more reliable and checks the available disk space before importing databases from remote locations. Background tasks are handled more reliable and providing indexed text to Spotlight has less impact on performance and battery life. The update also fixes a number of bugs and glitches.


  • Clip to DEVONthink adds text retrieved for a web page to the comments of bookmarks.
  • Clip to DEVONthink now recognizes also URLs provided as text, like Safari sometimes does.
  • The security lock screen now covers also full-screen videos and popovers.
  • Item lists display the pixel dimensions of images.
  • OmniOutliner, OmniPlan, and MindNote files are properly recognized even though they cannot be viewed.
  • Improved performance and energy impact of providing text to Spotlight.
  • Improved background task handling.
  • PDF library updated.
