DEVONtechnologies has updated all three editions of its DEVONagent research software (Lite, Express, and Pro) to version 3.9.7, ensuring that all search requests sent to Google or Bing now use secure connections (HTTPS). The Express and Pro editions receive updated Macintosh News (Latest/More) search sets. The Pro edition also gains a new contextual menu option that returns more precise see-also results for selected text, and it fixes a bug that caused automatic naming of files to fail (such as when dragging results to the Desktop). (All updates are free. DEVONagent Lite, free, release notes; DEVONagent Express, $4.95 new, release notes; DEVONagent Pro, $49.95 new with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members, release notes. 10.7.5+)
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the TidBITS Content Network for Apple consultants.
