Today, we released updates to both Evernote for Windows and Evernote for Mac. The Windows update includes a great new option for our tech savvy users. That’s in addition to a bunch of under-the-hood bug fixes and improvements.
Join the pre-release track
Evernote for Windows (version 4.2.2) now allows you to join our pre-release track to try out the newest versions of Evernote before their public availability. By becoming a pre-release user, you’ll get early access to features and functionality that are almost ready for primetime. Be aware: if you join the track, you will get updated more frequently than before.
It’s very important to note that pre-release software is not, by its definition, final, and carries some inherent risks. These risks can range from corruption of your notes to data loss. If you’re not comfortable using beta software, we recommend sticking to the normal update cycle.
To join the pre-release track, go Tools > Options > General and check the “Update to pre-release versions when available” option.
A note to Evernote 4 beta testers
If you were one of our early Evernote 4 beta testers, then you may have two versions of Evernote running on your machine, with two separate Evernote databases. This update will prompt you to select the database to use going forward and will the remove the old beta software from your computer. This will make you life a lot easier.
