Evernote, the online note taking and sharing service, has released a new version of its Windows client. Evernote 4.2 promises a host of new features coupled with improvements and bug fixes, and is a recommended download for all Windows Evernote users.
Version 4.2 adds a preferences dialogue box for the Evernote Web Clipper option for Internet Explorer, which is built into the Windows client (Firefox and Chrome extensions are also available separately). URLs are now automatically converted into clickable links when typed in, and there are a number of improvements across the program, including the note editor which is now described as more “robust and reliable”.
The Web Clippers Preferences dialogue box now lets users specify where web clips are sent to by default, plus choose whether to strip all but the most basic of formatting and suppress the New Clip dialogue box if it’s not required.
The note editor has been made more stable through a number of improvements. Fonts are handled better, while there’s better reliability when creating or pasting numbered, bulleted and multi-levelled lists. There’s also improved control over the display of encrypted text, while the clipboard shortcuts benefit from improved support across the note editor too.
Background synchronisation can now be enabled from the Task tray, while there’s also better printing options, ink note support and improved file drag and drop, with support for adding text files. Corporate users will also be pleased to learn that Evernote 4.2 has improved its proxy support too.
Evernote 4.2 is available now for Windows XP, Vista and 7.
