DEVONthink is the Mac incarnation of the real paperless office. It's a notepad, outliner, scrapbook manager, information manager, freeform database, archive, image database and bookmark manager - your personal »supplementary brain«. Based on our revolutionary DEVONtechnology, DEVONthink is an information manager capable of intelligently storing and organising all types of data, text files, PDFs and images. Put in whatever you want, organise it and let DEVONthink search for it.

Key features:
- Stores whatever you like, from texts, images, PDF documents and HTML to URLs
- Helps organising your stuff with a built-in, simple outliner
- Easy-to-use Finder-like user interface
- Super-fast navigation and display of contents
- Helps you to sort in new stuff (auto-classify, see-also, keywords)
- Advanced text editing including highlighting and realtime word and character count
- Lightning-fast, intelligent search function
- Built to seamlessly integrate with Mac OS X

What's unique:
- Works with much more file formats than all alternatives
- Imports and exports huge amounts of data extremely fast
- Works flawlessly with huge databases (>100 MB)
- Does not need indexing and still searches the database faster than all other freeform databases or scrapbook managers (which are in both, handling and performance, built for small databases)
- Stays highly performant even with big databases, i.e. double the size of the database does not mean half the performance
- Is built around industry standards and uses all major features of the operating system

Improved Dock icon bounces once if "Take Plain/Rich Note" and "Summarize" services or DEVONagent's "Add To DEVONthink" commands were successful (otherwise DEVONthink beeps) but only if no window is visible
Improved Highlighting of search words is now anchored to words if OR/AND mode is active
Improved Optional "Open Externally" and "Launch" toolbar items for content windows
