Screen Curtain: September 6th build, preparing for future NVDA releases #addonrelease
In about an hour from now Screen Curtain September 6th build will be released. This build is important because it includes a good news and a bad news (depending on how you view it):
As for this being a bad news for Screen Curtain add-on, not entirely a bad news: Screen Curtain add-on has found a new home, and that is latest NVDA alpha snapshot. As part of this transplantation, Leonard de Ruijter (the author behind routines in this add-on and allowing me to package his work as an add-on for field testing) rewrote major portions of screen curtain facility. Thus, if you are using latest NVDA 2019.3 alpha snapshot, today’s Screen Curtain add-on release will recognize this and not load itself.
As for today’s release being one of the last releases of Screen Curtain add-on: yes, although it won’t be until NVDA 2019.3 stable version is released that this add-on will be declared end of life. This is because there might be changes that will require me to adjust end of life strategy for this add-on. The repo will not be removed from my GitHub so people can study it once the add-on ceases active development.

So it will still work where it worked before, so no issues to anybody then?toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Not that I use it myself as my puters do not have a screen in the first place!
