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For purposes of record keeping, a legacy add-on is an add-on that is no longer actively maintained and/or incompatible with recent NVDA releases.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

I could not figure out this page. Should it not look like the normal add ons site?

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For purposes of record keeping, a legacy add-on is an add-on that is no
longer actively maintained and/or incompatible with recent NVDA releases.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.
