DEVONthink 2 third beta adds new search options

updated 04:00 am EST, Mon February 16, 2009

DEVONthink public beta 3

DEVONtechnologies has released its third public beta of DEVONthink 2.0 and DEVONnote 2.0. Both applications feature additional searching capabilities, including an OPT operator that enables users to expand searches with words that are preferred but not required. The beta also offers improved Adium Chatlog import and increased compatibility with del.icio.us feeds. All custom icons for databases are now displayed in the sidebar and users can also view PDF page counts.

DEVNthink Pro Office has been updated to integrate optical character recognition (OCR), based on the ABBYY FineReader engine, that is designed to create smaller PDF files. Users will also have more control over the OCR process, with an 'OCR Activity' panel for viewing or stopping processes.

Beta versions of DEVONthink 2.0 and DEVONnote 2.0 require Mac OS X 10.5 or later and offer 150 hours of non-continuous runtime before. Users can purchase DEVONthink Professional for $80, while the Professional Office version is priced at $150. The company plans to add a variety of features, including the implementation of smart tags, a fully functional sidebar, PDF annotations, enhanced image editing, and the ability to upload files through the web interface.
