DEVONagent 3.11 and DEVONsphere 1.9.2 for macOS Mojave

8. November 2018 — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

Search sets are part of what makes DEVONagent so powerful for serious research. Whatever the topic of the search, they run it on multiple search engines, crawl sites, post-filter the results, archive them, and finally hand them over to other apps or AppleScript. DEVONagent Pro 3.11 reorganizes search sets into groups. This allows to create and use more search sets for even specific use cases without cluttering the menus or losing track.

Of course we’ve updated a number of plugins as well. And to make this even easier in the future we’ve added an option that lets DEVONagent install and update new plugins from our website automatically.

Other enhancements in DEVONagent 3.11 include:

  • Better automatic selection of web page content
  • Improved keyboard navigation in lists
  • More accurate See Also, translation, and scripting by using the rendered web page
  • Enhanced VoiceOver support
  • New web service for generating web page thumbnails

In addition we’ve also updated DEVONsphere Express to version 1.9.2:

  • Fixes for visual artifacts and incorrect autocompletion on macOS Mojave
  • Improved indexing of ePUB, Tinderbox, and textclipping files
  • Re-enabled 32-bit Spotlight importers for file formats that haven’t seen updated importers so far
  • Enhanced VoiceOver support
  • New web service for generating web page thumbnails

We recommend these free updates to all users. Get them directly by using the apps’ update function or our Download page. If you purchased them in the Mac App Store you’ll receive them as soon as they’ve passed Apple’s review.
