DEVONthink 2.9 is Here with Light-Speed & Super-Safe Sync

After three betas our next-generation sync has finally reached production status. Today we've released DEVONthink 2.9 with our completely rewritten synchronization. It's built for speed, robustness and flexibility. It works both on the local network, with any removable volume, as well as with internet-based services such as Dropbox or WebDAV servers. (more)

And Another One: Next-Gen Sync Public Beta 3

We announced that public beta 2 would be the final beta but we found what we hoped we would(n't) find: critical bugs. So, here's public beta 3 with important bug fixes.

In the meantime we're polishing DEVONthink To Go 2.0's user interface in preparation for the App Store submission. (more)

Beta Test for New Sync and DEVONthink To Go 2.0 Starts

Since first mentioning DEVONthink To Go 2.0 more time has passed than we anticipated. We started to build our own sync technology including our own cloud service to use in both iOS and Mac versions of DEVONthink in 2013. Unfortunately our approach didn't work out as expected and so we boxed the project in August 2015 to write an alternative sync from scratch. (more)

Use Dropbox to Sync with Friends

If you are collaborating with others and using Dropbox as a DEVONthink sync location (never putting your database in a Dropbox or automatically cloud-synced folder), it is not possible to sync between Dropbox accounts. This means you need to have a shared account where everyone using the sync data will need to know the name and password to access it.

DEVONthink 2.7.1 Fixes Sorter and DEVONthink To Go Sync Bug

Last week we released DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.7 with exciting new features such as encrypted synchronization. Unfortunately the update also "featured" two hindering issues: When the Sorter starts after logging in, e.g. after a system restart, DEVONthink itself opens in addition to the Sorter. And if your Mac runs OS X 10.6.x or 10.7.x, DEVONthink is no longer visible to DEVONthink To Go on your Wi-Fi network. (more)

Mavericks, Encrypted Sync Stores, and Markdown

We have just released DEVONthink (all editions) and DEVONnote 2.7 with great new features and improvements. DEVONthink 2.7 now encrypts all metadata and all contents stored in remote sync locations such as Dropbox, WebDAV, or AFP. No other document management app on the Mac gives you so much flexibility and control over you data! (more)

Spring Updates, Part One

"Alles neu macht der Mai," Germans are saying. We do it already in April! We have just released maintenance updates for all three editions of DEVONthink popup: true as well as for DEVONnote popup: true. The update improves the reliability of synchronization, clipping with the Clip To DEVONthink browser extension as well as the bookmarklets, and many other parts of the apps. If you're using the new web interface of DEVONthink Pro Office popup: true you'll like that we have made it a lot faster. (more)
