DEVONtech Releases Three Updates

DEVONtech Releases Three Updates

by , 4:00 PM EST, December 23rd, 2003

DEVONtechnologies has released updates for DEVONagent, DEVONthink, and Easy Find. DEVONagent is a utility designed to be an automatic user defined search assistant. DEVONthink is a personal data management tool designed for organizing data, ranging from pictures to source codes. EasyFind is a search utility designed as a Sherlock replacement. The updates feature several new enhancements and fixes. According to DEVONtechnologies:

DEVONtechnologies published new versions of DEVONagent, its intelligent search agent and alternative browser, the freeform database DEVONthink and the super-fast find-file utility EasyFind.

DEVONagent 1.2 features new XML-based plug-ins which makes it easier for third-party developers to write interfaces to websites not supported by the standard plug-in set. Also, new version comes with a couple of new plug-ins searching the Wikipedia encyclopedia, the Wiktionary online dictionary, the Electronic Poetry Center, the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, World News and BBC News as well as directly querying Google and Altavista.

DEVONthink 1.7.4 now displays HTML pages using Apple's WebKit, the Safari engine, effectively making DEVONthink also an alternative browser. In the notepad and outline views, selected URLs immediately display the web page they point to in the preview area.

EasyFind 3.1, finally, allows to specify any folder for searching, uses localised folder names, comes with an updated Japanse localisation and fixes a minor interface glitch

You can find more information about the updates at the DEVONtechnologies Web site. The updates are free for registered users, while the full versions of DEVONagent and DEVONthink are available for US$35.00. EasyFind is available as freeware.
