Add-on Updater and Windows App Essentials 22.07 released, major add-on refactoring plan #addonrelease


Hi all,

Add-on Updater and Windows App Essentials 22.07 are now available. These updates bring localization updates and several bug fixes.


  • Add-on Updater: add-on download progress dialog is now centered on screen. In addition, various URL definitions scattered throughout the add-on are now collected under a module dedicated to URL constants (thanks to Luke Davis who was added as an author).
  • Windows App Essentials: initial support for Windows 11 Version 22H2 (build 22621). In Windows 10, if you are trying to install the add-on on old release, a list of supported releases will be presented. Table navigation commands in Mail app’s mail items is deprecated and will be removed in a future release.


Also, as the subject line indicates, a major add-on refactoring is planned, specifically for Add-on Updater. Stay tuned for a post announcing this work called Project Meteor.
