Re: Golden Cursor 3.8, SystrayList 3.7, important notes about these add-ons #addonrelease


One thing, the latest extended winamp version as posted on the addons site is 1.1

There are no stable and dev versions posted and that info is probably what nvda requires to update, 1.1 is the official version.

If its not, and 1.2 is stable or if there is a dev and stable channel then that page will need updating.

The updater is reading whatever data is there and 1.1 is the last version it can find according to the web page itself.

Its reading the right data, if its not right, that data needs updating.

Hi one little issue which needs sorting in either add on updater or nvda itself is what happens when an nvda update and add on update both flag together.
This morning being unaware of the add on update, I was asked to download the latest nvda alpha.
I did this, then instead of the install dialogue I got an add on update prompt, I was so busy deselecting extended winamp, since for some reason it thinks version 1.1 is later than 1.2, that I let it update the two other addone in this thread.
However I'd have expected, after the restart or maybe even before it, that it would have flagged about a downloaded   snap and asked if I wanted to use it. It did neither, in fact it vanished as far as nvda was concerned and I had to manually go in and look for an update, whereupon it downloaded it again and then al went well.
I just wondered what the suggested behaviour might be in such situations?

Subject: [nvda-addons] Golden Cursor 3.8, SystrayList 3.7, important notes about these add-ons #AddonRelease

Hi everyone,

Golden Cursor 3.8 and SystrayList 3.7 are now available. These releases ship
with latest localization updates. As always, they can be found by checking
for updates via Add-on Updater add-on or visiting the community add-ons

IMPORTANT: please keep the following in mind:

1. Last version compatible with old NVDA releases: today's releases are
compatible with old NVDA releases, and they are indeed the last releases to
be compatible with them. The next release of these add-ons will require NVDA
2019.3 or later; thus, they will come out shortly after NVDA 2019.3 stable
version is released.
2. Penultimate versions from me: a few months ago I announced to the
NVDA add-ons community that I'll be handing over maintenance of Golden
Cursor and SystrayList add-ons to the community, and at least for Golden
Cursor, at least one person is willing to maintain it. At the moment I'm
maintaining these add-ons on behalf of the community as we lost contact with
authors of Golden Cursor.
3. Development releases will be removed: on October 31, 2019,
development versions of these two add-ons will be removed from community
add-ons website. Those using Add-on Updater to check for development
releases of Golden Cursor and SystrayList are advised to switch to stable
channel today (to do so, go to NVDA menu/Preferences/Settings/Add-on
Updater, and under "prefer development releases" list, uncheck these two
