DEVONthink 1.3 released
DEVONtechnologies today released DEVONthink Professional and DEVONthink Professional Office 1.3 final, updating the document and information managers for the Mac based on artificial intelligence. DEVONthink Professional Office 1.3 final adds French and Danish localizations to the additional functions over the regular Professional edition, as well as a keyboard shortcut for the Capture function and support for inspecting a captured image when optical character recognition (OCR) fails. The latest release of DEVONthink Professional Office also enables users to import Unix mailbox files via drag-and-drop, enhances the reliability of the OCR process, and fixes some minor interface glitches. DEVONthink Professional Office is priced at $150, while DEVONthink Professional is available for $80. Both applications require Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.
DEVOnthink Professional and Professional Office allow users to scroll through PDF and PostScript documents by moving the page with the mouse, and improve support for Mozilla Firefox. Applescript support is enhanced in the latest release, and the advertisement filter built into the browser is more reliable, according to DEVONtechnologies.
The 'Backup Archive' script saves database-specific settings with exported files, and DEVONthink Professional 1.3 final offers better handling of incorrect encodings and the BASE tag in HTML. The update improves Web archive handling, fixes an incompatibility in the 'StopLight' SIMBL plug-in, and repairs some minor glitches.
