Re: NVDA 2019.3


Nikita
 

Hello!

Please tell me how it is planned to processing compatibility flags in the
manifest.ini?
For example, I am releasing an add-on with the lastTestedNVDAVersion =
2019.3.0.
What happens when NVDA version 2020.1.0 is released?
Will I have to update all add-ons with a single change in the manifest.ini,
and all users will need to reinstall this add-on?
And so every time?
What if my add-on is fully compatible, but I got hit by a bus?

Don't you think plain users should have more control over installing
add-ons? They should have the right to control the risk of incompatibility
without necessarily repackaging add-ons.
Any of us may no longer be alive tomorrow, and maybe the person who repacks
compatible add-ons will not appear.

Sincerely, Nikita.

No. If it was renamed to 2020.1 all add-ons will need to reflect that in the
manifest.ini...
So, all efforts made to make add-ons compatible will be lost and all authors
will need to change manifest.ini and submit again the add-on to the official
repository...

Yes, I thought that as well, indeed it has to be that way.
At the moment nobody can tell.

Actually and being serious for a moment as we are now in 2020, is it going
to be renamed 2020.1?

I don't know if you intended to do it this way. You made a little rhyme.
