Add-on Updater 19.01 (early Christmas present), requires NVDA 2018.4 #addonrelease


 

Hi everyone,

 

An early Christmas present for you: Add-on Updater 19.01 is now available. This one brings performance improves when checking for updates, two new add-on update checks, and new NvDA version requirement. Also, as of 19.01, Add-on Updater is Python 3 ready.

 

IMPORTANT: Add-on Updater 19.01 requires NVDA 2018.4.

 

You can get the new add-on release in two ways:

 

  • Manual: addons.nvda-project.org, select Add-on Updater and select stable version link.
  • Add-on Updater: check for add-on updates.

 

Changelog:

  • Several new and updated localizations.
  • Performance improvements when checking for add-on updates (done via threads).
  • Python 3 ready.

 

Another note to be aware of: there are add-ons hosted on some cloud datacenters that imposes time limit as to when you can download the add-on package. Thus, when NVDA says new add-on updates are available, please apply them as soon as possible. If you get an error that ends with “error 403” while downloading add-ons, please try checking for updates again.

 

Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

That last point has in fact affected File hippo in recent months on and off on ordinary downloads,when it says thanks the download failed.its obviously a bit stingy on waiting for our end to reply.

Incidentally, Those using older versions of nvda are they going to be constantly pestered with this new download which then fails to install due to the changes?
Maybe a new version of 18 with a check of nvda version should have been offered first?
