Clock September 13th development build posted


 

Hi all,

To fulfill a suggestion from Abdel and to let others test upcoming changes, here is Clock add-on September 13th development build:

https://github.com/hkatic/clock/releases/download/v21.09/clock-20210913-dev.nvda-addon

 

Note that this is a snapshot candidate – if things go well and I get around to resolving bug reports, the next official dev build will be released in a week or so; in the meantime dev builds will be in try build form – you can install it and give feedback, but when you check for updates, Add-on Updater will give you what appears to be an older release (don’t worry about it; you can et around by telling Add-on Updater to prevent updates for this particular add-on).

 

Changes:

 

From 21.07:

  • This build includes everything from upcoming 21.09 release, mostly modernization updates.

 

From 21.09:

  • Some messages will be in English as messages are being edited to be more user friendly.
  • If you are using Persian calendar, pressing nVDA+F12 three times quickly may result in NVDA appearing to do nothing for a short while – don’t worry about this and is beyond NVDA’s control.
  • Clock and alarm setup screens: messages should be more user friendly.
  • Time formats: a possible resolution to a bug where 24-hour format is shown as 12-hour format within specific time periods (shortly after midnight, for example). Please test and make sure this is working as intended.
  • Quiet hours set up: quiet hours start and end times interface has changed completely. Instead of entering quiet hours into edit fields (using specific format), combo boxes will be used to define quiet hours. Also, “input in 24-hour format” checkbox is now a time format combo box where you can choose between 12-hour and 24-hour format, and as you do so, hour combo box items will change to reflect the chosen time format. Note that due to the way the combo boxes work, it may take up to a second for clock setup settings panel to be ready – in order to speed things up, we must give up 12-hour format and standardize on 24-hour format for quiet hours specification (which also means hours and minutes combo boxes will become edit spin controls), something that won’t happen unless the community says otherwise by next year. A bonus for developers: with this change, there is no longer a need to validate quiet hours spec before saving settings.
  • Various optimizations.

 

I won’t be able to work on Clock add-on until the weekend due to graduate school classes. Keep comments, suggestions, and bug reports coming.

Cheers,

Joseph


 

Hi,

One more thing I forgot to add: if you clear quiet hours checkbox, quiet hours you’ve defined will be removed completely. This is done to simplify the add-on logic.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hello,
Quick question: if I have Clock 21.07 stable installed, when can I
expect to get the latest version through add-on updater?
Best regards,
