DEVON updates think, agent

Devon Technologies today released updates to its DEVONthink and DEVONagent applications, offering Universal Binary versions of both programs to natively support Intel-based Macs. DEVONthink Professional 1.1 is an information manager with built-in artificial intelligence, aiding users with organizational tasks. The update removes a number of unnecessary preferences, simplifies import options, and includes a redesigned search dialog window. Version 1.1 trims options down to importing and indexing, and cleans up the various import preferences for different file types. The application uses the system-wide proxy settings, as well as a more sophisticated download manager. Indexed documents are compatible to the phrase and wildcard search, and the upgrade improves reliability of synchronizing documents in the database with files in the file system. The full application is priced at $80, and requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.

The update to DEVONagent 2.0 features an easy-to-use interface, as well as an interactive topics map. DEVONagent is designed as an intelligent internet research assistant. Further features include language filters, scanners, actions, and a scheduler. Additional items like scripts are automatically installed if needed, and a contextual menu extension inserts a "Search with DEVONagent" item into other applications' contextual menus. A Dashboard widget provides users with access to DEVONagent from any application by activating the Dashboard, and the documentation has been completely rewritten. DEVONagent 2.0 is priced at $50, and requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.
