DevonAgent Pro 3.0 released, new plug-ins added

updated 02:00 am EDT, Thu July 21, 2011

Full Devon lineup now Lion compatible

Devon Technologies has renamed their internet search agent program to DevonAgent Pro to further distinguish it from the Express and Lite editions, and updated it to version 3.0 following several betas. The new version is compatible with OS X 10.7 Lion, and supports 64-bit mode for better memory management on machines with large amounts of RAM. The company have added three new plug-ins, and made a host of minor improvements.

DevonAgent Pro uses plug-ins and algorithms to dramatically improve search results over what a user might get from a simple Google search, particularly by scouring specialized databases such as those of the new plug-ins, which bring results from JSTOR, the SEC and Lexis Web. All of the standard plug-ins have been updated or rewritten, and now support authentication.

The thumbnail gallery has been improved, along with compatibility changes to the MultiMedia and Code scanners. Enhanced workspace handling has been brought over from DevonThink, which also adds better "See Also" results, news feed handling and a more reliable full-screen mode. Compared to version 2, the new v3 also offers a plug-in assistant for creating new plug-ins, saved searches, Cover Flow views, an improved web browser with bookmark management, a better archiving process and an overhauled user interface and support assistant.

Customers who purchased DevonAgent after January 1st, 2009 are eligible to upgrade to the new version for free. Older licenses can be upgraded for either $40 (from version 1) or $25 (v2). The program sells for $50 and will soon be available via the Mac App Store. The program requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later and can be test-driven for free up to 60 non-continuous hours before needing to be licensed.
