With the release of NVDA 2022.1 beta 1, I understand that many of you might be wondering about state of your favorite add-ons, more so as 2022.1 is a compatibility breaking release. I can assure you that I and other add-on authors are working hard to ensure that add-ons you know and love are ready for the upcoming NVDA release.
A few important reminders before talking about my own add-ons:
Now for the fun stuff: I know that some of you are wondering about status of my own add-ons. I can report that if you are running 22.03.1 releases of my add-ons, you are good to go. The following add-ons are affected:
You may have noticed that most of my add-ons are marked with EOL (end of life). And indeed, these add-ons (five of them) are no longer being maintained by me. The last release under my maintenance is 22.03.1. The official end of life date for these add-ons is April 1, 2022 as I will be making changes between now and then to remove support for older Windows releases (as I announced previously, 22.03.1 will be the final releases of end of life add-ons to support Windows 7, 8, and 8.1).
Thank you for your feedback for Enhanced Touch Gestures, GoldWave, Resource Monitor, Sound Splitter, and StationPlaylist over the years. Your feedback made all the difference for these add-ons. Now it is the community’s turn to make a difference for these add-ons in the future by maintaining them.
P.S. One more milestone before I say goodbye (finally) to the NVDA community…
