Given that NVDA 2019.3 will see more betas than usual, along with the possible release window being early 2020, I’d like to provide a status update on all my add-ons (including ones leaving my nest in 2020) so you can prepare yourselves:
- NVDA 2019.3 optimized add-ons to be released in January: in January 2020 (starting from the New Year’s Day), NVDA 2019.3 optimized add-ons will be released. This will be done in stages – starting from one or two add-ons that will see compatibility updates, ending with Add-on Updater (NVDA 2019.3 optimized Add-on Updater will be released after 2019.3 stable version is released for sake of compatibility).
- Update procedure: once NVDA 2019.3 optimized versions of various add-ons are released, there is no going back. If you are using NVDA 2019.1 or later, you won’t be able to install these add-ons – you need to be using NVDA 2019.3 beta or later in order to install them. In case you are using Add-on Updater, Add-on Updater itself will report that you can’t update to newer add-on releases. I’m thinking about a way to let this add-on report no updates if you are using NVDA 2019.2.1 or earlier and the stable version of an add-on (or a development build) requires NVDA 2019.3 or later (at least as a temporary measure).
