Community ad-ons process and website update: legacy add-ons

 

Hi all,

 

The add-ons people have received numerous reports of incompatible add-ons listed on community add-ons website, along with reports of at least one add-on that wasn’t maintained actively until recently. To highlight these, a “legacy add-ons” section has been created at the following page:

https://addons.nvda-project.org/legacy.en.html

 

For purposes of record keeping, a legacy add-on is an add-on that is no longer actively maintained and/or incompatible with recent NVDA releases. When a new add-on maintainer is found or the add-on becomes compatible with recent NVDA releases, they will return to either “stable” or “development” status depending on the status prior to legacy declaration. Some add-ons will be removed after being declared “legacy” for some time if the add-on becomes unnecessary, mostly due to features from the add-on becoming part of NVDA screen reader.

 

Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

Joseph, I recently got an update for “extended Winamp”. V1.2. when I went to the web page it is still showing v1.1. Addon manager does not show what the new changes are in v1.2

Hi,

Version 1.2 is identical to 1.1 except making it compatible with upcoming NVDA 2019.3 (I should have sent out a generalannouncement…).

Cheers,

Joseph
