So at the moment then those on the stable channel will not get any add on update requests for these, until the full release version of nvda is released, is that correct?

In the mean time alpha, and whenever beta snaps come on line will get the nod to download updates. Of course I've already turned off updates to goldwave as I'm not using the 64 bit version of Goldwave at present.

Subject: [nvda-devel] Joseph Lee's add-ons and NVDA 2019.3: dev snapshots for Golden Cursor, Resource Monitor, SystrayList

Hi developers and add-ons community,

As part of moving my add-ons to NVDA 2019.3, the next phase has begun:
development snapshots for three more add-ons will now require NVDA 2019.3 in
any form:

* Golden Cursor
* Resource Monitor
* SystrayList

The usual notices:

* Some of them does not include development version download link on
community add-ons website. To test development snapshots, you need to switch
to dev channel via Add-on Updater (NVDA menu/Preferences/Settings/Add-on
Updater/Prefer development releases).
* Just like snapshots for StationPlaylist and Windows 10 App
Essentials, these three additional add-on snapshots will require NVDA 2019.3
in any form.

Add-on changelog:

* Golden Cursor: downgrading to 3.8 after installing today's
development snapshot is not supported nor recommended.
* Resource Monitor: no more Python 2 version of psutil library.
* SystrayList: as requested by Rui Fontes a few weeks ago, donation
requests will no longer show up. Also, Windows XP specific workaround for
fetching Taskbar icons has been removed.

In December, more development snapshot releases will continue with GoldWave
and one or two additional add-ons. Thankfully, dev snapshots of Add-on
Updater will not be released so updates to existing add-ons will not be
