Re: When will the next NVDA be released?

Quentin Christensen

And just to reply to the original questions - it has been awhile between releases - partly because we didn't want to rush things over Christmas, so that delayed things, and also there were a couple of niggly bugs we wanted to fix with languages before going to the final release - we'd alway rather push back a release and put out something which is stable, than push out something just to meet an arbitrary deadline.  The suggestion to follow In-process is definitely worthwhile to keep up to date with what we're up to:

As noted, the release candidate came out today, and you can read more and download it here:

Unless anyone finds any major issues with it, then the final NVDA 2020.4 should be out within the next couple of weeks.

Oh, and yes our finances are sound, we're not about to disappear anytime soon :)  Thank you for your interest, and for your donation, it is very much appreciated!

Kind regards

Where are you looking?  Check for updates isn't on the main menu.  Its where
such things usually are, in the help submenu.

It's been a long time since there was an official release of NVDA that is
available with the Check for Updates on the NVDA menu. Is there a problem?
Is nv-access short of funds? I made a donation recently.
