Hi everyone,

 

All clear except for next branch users: if you are using next branch, please download the latest snapshot (13399) from the following page:

http://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/snapshots/

 

Also, if you are using next build 13392, please install the latest snapshot directly instead of taking the update check route, as update check fails due to wxpython assertions being enabled.

 

Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

Dear members of the NVDA community:

 

If you are using master (live beta) or next (alpha) snapshots, the following is for you (users of NVDA 2016.2.1 are not affected):

 

Since July 8th, NVDA snapshots are not being built for some reason. This means if you check for updates, the latest snapshots you’ll get will be July 6th and 7th for next and master, respectively. Thus, I’m hosting code that could have been built in the meantime on NVDA Korea website at:

http://www.nvda-kr.org/en

 

For consistency, the build number is 13400 for both snapshots. Note that these does not support updates nor works in secure screens, so please use them as portable copies. These snapshots will be gone once automatic update checking returns.

 

Changelog:

 

Master:

·         See What’s New document. In summary, if you are using Insider builds, you can hear NVDA announce search suggestions and browse mode in Edge returns. Color names were simplified.

·         Localization updates as of July 8, 2016.

 

Next:

·         You can test ability to disable/enable add-ons without resorting to restarting NVDA with add-ons disabled (Joseph Lee).

·         Improved support for BC600 series of braille displays from Alva (Davy Kager).

·         Other changes.

 

Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph
