DEVONthink is DEVONtechnologies' document and information management solution. It supports a large variety of file formats and stores them in a database enhanced by artificial intelligence (AI). Many document formats can be directly viewed, edited, and annotated. A powerful search language finds documents in an instant, smart groups keep them always at hand.
Sophisticated organization tools, AI-based techniques that handle even the largest collections, and numerous integration options make DEVONthink the work environment of choice for researchers, lawyers, and educators. Smart rules, flexible reminders, and deep AppleScript support allow automating even complex repeating tasks. And with its fast, reliable, and secure synchronization users keep their data available on all their Macs. DEVONthink To Go for iPad and iPhone completes the DEVONthink ecosystem.

This release brings a wide variety of additions, changes, and improvements. A new preference allows you to decide whether viewed items are marked as read, and a new filter pane finds multimedia documents. With dates being prevalent in many naming conventions, new smart rule actions and AppleScript properties help deal with finding or changing dates. Markdown editing has been polished, including easier indenting of lists, and RTFD documents now support displaying pencil drawings made in DEVONthink To Go 3.5 and later. In addition, several inspectors have seen modifications and the improved sync engine makes Dropbox and iCloud synchronizations more robust. The FAQ is now accessible via the Help menu.
