[prMac.com] Coeur d'Alene, Idaho - Apple is about to release OS X Yosemite, the newest incarnation of your Mac's operating system. Version 2.8 prepares all editions of DEVONthink as well as DEVONnote for it. User interface adjustments make the apps look better in Yosemite's new flat design. Compatibility fixes iron out many of the little glitches of the major operating system update.
Also, DEVONthink 2.8 comes with a brand new sharing extension. It allows users to clip text and web addresses from other Mac apps with a single click. Extensions are Yosemite's new way for exchanging data between applications.
Other new features include a script for Safari that adds the web addresses of all open tabs as bookmarks to DEVONthink. Sharing information becomes easier with a Share submenu available in contextual menus of PDF and web views. The Clip to DEVONthink web browser extension now also works from Safari's reading list. Users of both DEVONthink and DEVONnote can set images in web views as the bookmark's thumbnail. Finally, DEVONthink Pro Office 2.8 now supports the ScanSnap Manager 6.x releases too.
All updates come also with further improvements, are more reliable, and fix some bugs. In addition to the updates for DEVONthink for Mac, DEVONthink To Go 1.4.3 improves the compatibility to iOS 8 and the iPhone 6. Another update with more adjustments and a new feature is already in Apple's review queue.
"OS X Yosemite is the next step in the evolution of the Mac operating system. Its extensions are a new way to share data from and exchange data between apps. DEVONthink is all about collecting information, organizing, and sharing it. And so we embrace extensions, starting with a sharing extension for DEVONthink for Mac", comments Eric Bohnisch-Volkmann, President of DEVONtechnologies.
