Re: Suggestion for upcoming NVDA build


You should just have the option in the main version if you wish to
update to a snap shot or not. I normally love grabbing the next build
as soon as I can.

Hi Chris
What I am talking about is the snap shot versions of nvda check for
snap shot updates them selves.
In that way the normal nvda dist users could just go on using the
normal nvda dist with out worrying if it will update to a snap shot.

Well, when on a snapshot, it actually does notify you of updates at
this point. Not sure when the last time was you tried.

Personaly i think it could be an good idea. I think many like me
often forgot to check for updates even for snapshot, so at least some
kind of notification would be apresiated.

no this is not a good idea, a newbey might try this feature that
you want and download a snap and it might have problems then threw
word of mouth nvda gets a bad reputation, this was asked for some
years ago and the devs gave this explanation of why it was a bad
idea I agree with them.

How hard would it be from the official build, like in this case,
to put an option in the NVDA menu, maybe under Tools, that
like downloading updates would let the user download and install the
latest snapshot build rather than them having to go out to the web
and manually get it. Either that, or maybe under the General tab of
preferences, where you have the box to check or uncheck for
checking for
updates, maybe have another one that says download snapshot builds
What do you all think?
