Re: Joseph Lee's add-ons and NVDA 2019.3: release schedule for next add-on releases in preparation for 2019.3 stable

I think both approaches—yours and Gene’s—would be useful, for not everybody using NVDA—old or new—is on this list.

Hi,

The older version links will be posted to this mailing list. I also noted that these older version links will be up until 30 days after 2019.3 stable version is released, so at least until March 2020.

Cheers,

Joseph

But how will those who want to know about them know where to look?  Are you going to have a link on the add-ons page directing people to a page where older versions of add-ons compatible with older versions of NVDA can be found?  The links on that page can lead to wherever the add-ons actually are but there should be an obvious way for older users to know where to find such add-ons on the add-ons home page, such as a link to where they are listed.

Most are available from GitHub.

By God,
were I given all the seven heavens
with all they contain
in order that
I may disobey God
by depriving an ant
from the husk of a grain of barley,
I would not do it.
