Re: Introducing Add-on Updater: check, download, apply add-on updates #addonrelease



That try build is way old now, as newer NVDA alpha builds include most of the changes included in that try build.

Joseph, using your try build of NVDA: try-w10-15530,16facaf1


And, there's no additional menu item under tools, etc., for this add-on?


Stay well

Hi all,


I’m delighted to announce the immediate release of Add-on Updater that brings one of the frequently requested features to life: ability to check, download, and apply community add-on updates:


To use this add-on, after installing it, go to NVDA menu/Tools/Check for add-on updates. If updates are found, a list of updates will be shown with an option to update add-ons. After installing add-on updates, say “yes” when asked to restart.


The following add-ons are excluded from add-on update check via this add-on because they provide their own add-on update feature: Braille Extender, StationPlaylist Studio, WeatherPlus, Windows 10 App Essentials. Also, add-ons not hosted on community add-ons website ( are also excluded.
