Yes this has been in next for some time. One word of warning. It does not always prompt to install or postpone unless you switch away and back from the screen. I don't know if perhaps it does not always know if the dialogue has changed, but its a real thing, as Its happened several times.

Subject: [nvda] Important user interface and experience change: postponing NVDA updates, now a reality


Dear NVDA community,



The following is considered a major change as it'll affect everyone who
chooses to check for and download new NVDA updates:



As of March 28, 2018, a change has been made to how NVDA will present update
notices. This change, now part of master snapshots (beta-level), will
require you to adjust how you respond to update notices.



Specifically:



Old behavior:



1. NVDA will check for updates.
2. NVDA will offer to either download and install the update (installed
copy) or just download the update (portable version). You can also ask NVDA
to remind you later.
3. For those who've installed NVDA: once the update download is
complete, you can press Escape to select OK button, and update process will
begin.



New behavior:



1. NVDA will check for updates.
2. NVDA will offer to just download the update (both installed copy and
portable version) or let it remind you later.
3. For installed copy: once the update is downloaded, you can either
choose to install it now or postpone it. If you press Escape, NVDA will
assume that you want to postpone update installation.
4. If you choose to postpone update installation, a new item will
appear when you exit NVDA, which will offer to start the update process when
NVDA restarts.

The ability to postpone NVDA updates will be made available in NVDA 2018.2
(May 2018 at the earliest). Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph
