Important notice: Windows 10 app Essentials 17.08.2 is the last version to support NVDA 2017.2 and earlier #addonrelease


 

Ladies and gentlemen,

 

Those using Windows 10 App Essentials add-on stable builds may have noticed a prompt to update to version 17.08.2. Please do go ahead and update. More info can be found at:

https://github.com/josephsl/wintenApps/releases/tag/17.08.2

 

Few important announcements:

 

  • Windows 10 App Essentials 17.08.2 is the last version to support NVDA 2017.2 and earlier. This was a necessary decision as 2017.3 (now available as a release candidate) brings backwards incompatible changes to the code the add-on relied on, as well as integrating key add-on features into NVDA itself. The next stable version (hopefully 17.09) will absolutely require NVDA 2017.3.
  • The next stable version of the add-on will go out at least a week after release of NVDA 2017.3 final build (not RC).
  • Going forward, if you wish to change update channels via Windows 10 App Essentials dialog, you’ll need to say “yes” when a warning message appears, especially if switching from stable to development builds.

 

Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph
