DEVON apps add Spotlight, Leopard features

DEVON OS enhancements

DEVONtechnologies has released updates for several of its applications, concentrating on features of Mac OS X. DEVONthink 1.9.12, Pro/Pro Office 1.5, and DEVONnote 1.9.12 now include native support for Spotlight, as a result of metadata caches that allow the tool to probe for documents stored inside databases. Inclusion of Spotlight also has the secondary benefit of allowing search through multiple databases simultaneously, for the first time in any DEVON product.

The programs now also have improved ad filters and Javascript support, as well as more stable interaction with background tasks. The update for DEVONthink Pro Office removes the 50-page OCR limit, due to use of a less restrictive license for the associated engine.

The company's freeware applications -- XMenu, EasyFind, ThumbsUp and PhotoStickies -- are now Leopard compatible, with XMenu in particular receiving new menu and application icons. DEVONnote costs $20; prices for DEVONthink range from $40 to $150 for Pro Office.
