Re: Windows 10 App Essentials 17.03 released

I apologize if it came across like I was complaining or not willing to be patient, etc. That was far from my tone. All that I was saying is I, too, didn't understand exactly the logic behind why things were not just included within the actual build, but seeing that little tweaks get made as problems arise, you definitely do have a very good point there. Otherwise, we'd have to wait until a whole new release was made public, which may be several months, as aposed to just patching what is needed through that addon, then pushing just an update to the addon itself, so yeah... at the end of the day, I see where you're going with this, most definitely.

What I've realised is that the features in the Windows 10 app
essentials add-on are being slowly integrated into NVDA release by
release. Certainly, these are tweeks being made by Joseph and others,
and they must go through a review process by the devs and others to
ensure quality.
Yes, I have the add-on, and I wish some of its features, like its
notification of updates, as an add-on, were integrated into NVDA, but
it takes time.
