Early Spring Updates

March 1, 2023 — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

Today’s maintenance releases for all editions of DEVONagent bring integration with three more search engines, the AI-based, general-purpose Neeva, the law-centric Caselaw Access Project, and the engineering-focused IEEEXplore. The scripts and scanners of the Pro edition also retrieve more image formats, the See Also inspector makes better suggestions, and DEVONagent understands more RSS feed flavors. For better search results, DEVONagent Pro and Express handle filtering advertisements a bit more aggressively.

The desktop search assistant DEVONsphere Express also received some attention. It refines the suggestions for related websites, adds thumbnails to web search results more reliably, and better handles percent-escaping in links. We also improved the built-in Welcome Assistant and the Help menu gives direct access to our ever-growing Frequently Asked Questions page.

Of course, all updates fix also bugs and glitches, and improve the overall reliability and performance.

You can find a complete list of all improvements by choosing Help > Release Notes inside the application. We recommend these free updates to all users of DEVONagent and DEVONsphere. Get them by using the applications’ update functions or from our Download page.
