Leopard updates for DEVON
DEVONtechnologies has released updates for a variety of its applications, in all cases focusing on making the programs current with Mac OS X Leopard. DEVONnote, and the DEVONthink Pro, Pro Office and Personal suites, for instance, have been fixed to address changes to the launch version of Leopard; they can now properly read Office 2007 and OpenDocument files, and accept e-mails dragged in from Mail. The new Find indicator is spread throughout the apps, and standard PDF options appear in the contextual menus of PDFs loaded from the web. Non-Leopard updates include an improved ad-blocking filter and two new plain text types, as well as CanoScan Toolbox support for DEVONthink Pro Office.
The DEVONagent research tool has meanwhile been updated to v2.3, and adds features such as one-click webpage translation, a better history function, and an export option for archived groups. Scanners in the software have also been improved, primarily thorough the ability to screen for images, e-mail addresses and document attachments.
All of the above software requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later. Prices for DEVONthink scale from $40 for Personal to $150 for Pro Office; DEVONnote costs $20, while DEVONagent is $50.
