StationPlaylist add-on 19.08.1 and 18.09.11-LTS, plans for the long-term suport version #addonrelease


Hi all,


StationPlaylist add-on 19.08.1 and 18.09.11-LTS are now available. The key difference between these two versions is which SPL suite is the minimum – 19.08.x supports SPL 5.20, and 18.09.11-LTS supports 5.1x. As always, these releases can be found on community add-ons website or through Add-on updater.


Today’s releases are bug fix releases. Both include fixes for encoder support, add-on settings, and for 19.08.x, a specific problem related to starting Studio.


Also, a note on future 18.09.x releases:


  • I expect two more releases in 18.09.x series – one in October and another one shortly after NVDA 2019.3 is released.
  • Support for 18.09.x (and consequently, Studio 5.1x) will cease on December 31, 2019 or at least 30 days after NVDA 2019.3 stable version is released, whichever happens earlier. I’ll announce the exact end of life date then.
  • 18.09.x is Python 2 and 3 compatible.
