Re: Add-on Updater 19.08 released, first of two mandatory updates for everyone #addonrelease


This means the author may have (and did) provide wrong update channel
identification for stable releases (it should be None, but some add-ons did
say "stable"). I'm going to add a workaround for this issue in 19.08.1 and
19.09 and no more after that.

Subject: [nvda-devel] Add-on Updater 19.08 released, first of two mandatory
updates for everyone #AddonRelease

Hi everyone,

Add-on Updater 19.08 is now available. This is the first of two
mandatory updates for anyone using Add-on Updater.


* Version 19.08 removes an experimental feature to present a toast
message on Windows 10 when new add-on updates become available.
Although this is useful, it was found that it isn't ready for
primetime yet (thanks for community feedback). Because this experiment
was controlled by a setting, version 19.08 removes this, hence this being
a mandatory update.
* Version 19.08 includes a possible fix for download time-out.
Specifically, if you respond to update notification more than five
minutes of it appearing, you may get an error in regards to update
download. This has been corrected, along with a new way of accessing
the add-ons website to retrieve update status information for various

The following describes Add-on Updater releases for the next few weeks:

* 19.08 (released today): supports NVDA 2019.1, first mandatory
* 19.08.1: to be released shortly after NVDA 2019.2 is released. The
only change will be minimum NVDA version supported - 2019.2. This is
not a mandatory update.
* 19.09 (anniversary update): to be released later in August (or by
early September at the latest), second mandatory update for everyone
and requiring NVDA 2019.2 or later. By then, if the time-out bug is
resolved, it'll become a permanent feature of this add-on.
