Add-on version 21.01 released: Enhanced Touch Gestures, Resource Monitor, StationPlaylist, Windows 10 App Essentials #addonrelease


 

Hello everyone,

Four add-ons were updated to version 21.01:

  • Enhanced Touch Gestures: dedicated touch support toggle command was removed from the add-on as NVDA provides one. As a result, NVDA 2020.3 or later is required, and Enhanced Touch Gestures settings panel is hereby removed. For Windows 10 Version 1709 (Fall Creators Update/build 16299) users, performing a four finger flick left from a text field will summon dictation feature (Windows+H).
  • Resource Monitor: Windows version information is shortened. On Windows 8.x, Windows version announcement will now include build.revision information similar to the one Windows 10 users are accustomed to.
  • StationPlaylist: version 21.01 requires NVDA 2020.3 ion order to take advantage of recent GUI feature changes from NVDA, and SPL Studio 5.30 or later is required. Also, version 20.09.5-LTS (long-term support) version is also available for Studio 5.20 users, and I expect it will be the second to last 20.09.x release.
  • Windows 10 App Essentials: version 21.01 is the last version to support Windows 10 Version 1909 (November 2019 Update/build 18363), with the next stable version requiring Version 2004 (May 2020 Update/build 19041) or later. It also restores support for recent Mail and Calendar app and resolves history and memory list item announcements in Calculator. Also, from 21.01, NVDA 2020.3 or later is required.

 

As always, the new add-on updates can be retrieved via Add-on Updater or from community add-ons website.

Cheers,

Joseph
