That's concerning. What happens if you try checking for the update after
installing Add-on Updater 18.08.3A?

Hi Joseph

I just updated the add on to update add ons and it got the latest.

I read to get the curtain one which i already have i had to go back a
time for it to see it and up date it so i did.

Only thing is it is still looking and i could not really cancel it it went
on for quite a few minutes yet all the other add ons which i have were
already updated.

I had to restart nvda so it would stop it from looking. Would that also be
because the other add on is not up there? or a bug?

Hi everyone,

I'm delighted to announce the immediate release of updates to Add-on
and Screen Curtain. Note that these add-ons are proof of concept
add-ons and should be used to provide feedback to people developing these
feature in NVDA Core:

* Add-on Updater (NVDA Core issue 3208): Joseph Lee
* Screen Curtain (NVDA Core issue 7857): Leonard de Ruijter/Babbage

In case of Add-on Updater, today's build includes work from checkable list
(NVDA issue 7491), thus serving as a field test of that issue. If you have
any comments on checkable list, please send them to Leonard.

To check for add-on updates:

1. If you have Add-on Updater installed, go to NVDA menu/Tools/Check
for add-on updates.
2. If you don't have Add-on Updater, go to community add-ons website
and install Add-on Updater.
3. Due to addition of Screen Curtain in "add-ons under development"
category, you'll need to check for add-on updates a second time to update
Screen Curtain.


Add-on Updater:

* When new add-on updates appear, the first entry will be selected and
announced automatically.
* Added ability to exclude add-ons from being updated. You can
configure this by going to NVDA menu/Preferences/Settings/Add-on Updater
panel. From "do not update add-ons" checkable list box, check add-ons you
not want Add-on Updater to update. This was requested by an add-on author.

Screen Curtain:

* Added a check to make sure magnification wrapper can be imported.
* Added an unassigned gesture to toggle screen curtain.
* Added a toggle menu item in Tools that shows state of Screen
