Community add-ons notice: Audio Themes add-on removed from stable distribution channel on add-ons website

 

Dear NVDA community,

 

Please circulate the following community-wide notice to all channels devoted to NVDA and other places:

 

Over the last few months, the add-ons community has received countless compatibility reports regarding Audio Themes 3D add-on. The latest of these, as detailed in a recent NVDA issue filed on GitHub, describes a change made to 2019.2 where the add-on would fail to start correctly due to a missing component in NvDA settings interface used by this add-on. Given this bug, coupled with other bugs reported from the NVDA community, the add-ons website maintainers decided to pull Audio Themes 3D from stable channel distribution until reported bugs are resolved. Note that this add-on will remain under development section and translations will continue to be generated, and updates for this will be checked by Add-on Updater.

 

Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

I'm assuming you have alerted the author of this decision.
Having a look through logs there do seem to be about three main errors but all are, at the moment seemingly advisory except one. I'll not clutter here with them, but thought it worth mentioning.
