Important notice on Joseph Lee's add-ons: next add-on releases, NVDA version jump
The following announcement is applicable if you are using any of my add-ons (Add-on Updater, Control Usage Assistant, Enhanced Touch Gestures, Event Tracker, GoldWave, Resource Monitor, StationPlaylist, Windows App Essentials):
Currently most of my add-ons support NVDA 2020.4. Starting with the next version of Add-on Updater, I will ask you to use newer NVDA releases in order for add-ons to take advantage of features introduced in recent NVDA releases. This is especially true for people wishing to upgrade to Windows 11 once released to the public.
The reason for requiring newer NVDA releases is that version 2021.2 introduces several changes that will affect add-ons in a fundamental way. One of these changes is called “control types refactor” where it changes how developers specify control roles and states in add-on source code. As most of my add-ons are affected, I’m asking you to prepare accordingly. Note that the old way of specifying control roles and states will work until next year when the new style will become the default, and add-on developers were notified of this change a while ago.
