Yes, and I clicked that button and heard the surprise!  Thanks Joseph for all you have done with nvda and its ad ons over the years!

Hi all,
The "surprise" will show up only once.
Also, "to let the cat out of the bag" (as they say), the "surprise" is not the text itself. If you listen to the dialog content carefully, you'll notice an interesting button. Clicking that button will reveal the "surprise".

It wasn't the audio message? That was a surprise to me. I thought that
was so cool! And Happy new Year to all of you! :)

Annette, who hopes she didn't give it away

Wow, did that come through the addon or was it part of email.

This is interesting though, obviously for seecurity you would have to
be carefull, but some sort of daily message or something on new
things or whatever well that was good.

Then again you said a surprise was coming and well yeah.

I have never had a happy new year from my screenreader, thats novel.

Hi Joseph

A good message to start the year with same back at you like a boomerang.

We are already 17 hours into the new year.

I will not copy and paste the message they will see when they update it.

Hi everyone,

Happy New Year (or New Year's Eve depending on where you are).

Sometime in 2019 (few seconds after midnight UTC on January 1, 2019
to be
exact), Add-on Updater 19.01.1 will make its appearance on any
computer running NVDA with this add-on installed. Although this is a
point release, it is a major release that resolves more compatibility
issues with Python 3 and simplifies certain portions of this add-on
source code. You will also find a surprise inside (shhh, you'll see
it after upgrading to that version).
