JetBrains Tackles Information Overload with Release of Omea Pro 2.0

Award-winning Information Environment Adds Enhanced Usability, Versatility and Categorization Features to Desktop Search

PRAGUE, Czech Republic -- September 6, 2005 — JetBrains™, Inc., creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing tools, today announced the availability of Omea Pro 2.0, the newest version of its award-winning Integrated Information Environment for easily and efficiently managing multiple forms of incoming electronic information; as well as, existing files of all formats on the desktop. With the growing number of incoming information sources available, from email to Instant Messages to RSS feeds and websites, Omea Pro brings these sources together so users can distinguish their vital information based on it's relevance to specific projects or job functions.

In addition to Desktop Search tools that help to find information, Omea Pro's intelligent information management features bring together and categorize all types of incoming information, regardless of its format, according to its potential use and relevance to projects, research, and contacts. Users can then quickly search all of their information, within one, easy-to-use Integrated Information Environment.

The newest version of Omea Pro synchronizes with Microsoft Outlook® emails, contacts, and tasks, as well as ICQ®, Miranda, Internet Explorer and Mozilla© Firefox, and works with MS Word, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint, PDF files, pictures, newsgroups, and RSS feeds. It can also be easily extended to work with other file types. Additional enhancements in v2.0 to help tackle information overload and improve user productivity include:

  • Automatic search and categorization of digital information based on user defined rules
  • Subscribe to multiple RSS feeds directly from the webpage being viewed
  • Create Clippings (blocks of important information) directly from a website without leaving the browser
  • Support for podcasting and importing subscription archives from SharpReader, RSS Bandit and FeedDemon
  • Relationships between associated resources are easily and automatically displayed using "Links"

"Alone, desktop search utilities help to find information on a one-time basis", said JetBrains' co-founder and CEO Sergey Dmitriev, "They are a temporary efficiency improvement. Information Environments provide desktop search capabilities as a base, and then help users to permanently improve their efficiency with intelligent categorization features."

Omea Pro 2.0 is available now and can be purchased at www.jetbrains.com/omea/buy/. Additional information about Omea Pro's innovative information management features and capabilities, as well as a free, fully-functional, 30-day trial version is available at www.jetbrains.com/omea/?pr. Users who purchased Omea Pro 1.x can receive a free upgrade to Omea Pro 2.0 by simply downloading the newest version and using their current License Key.
