April 13th snapshot, time-based broadcast profiles feature is no more and other announcements #testdrivebuilds


 

Hi all,

 

April 13th snapshot is on its way (to be released in a few hours). This build is a mandatory development snapshot build:

 

As of April 13th snapshot, time-based broadcast profiles feature is no more.

 

This change won’t show up to stable channel until late May at the earliest.

 

Also, another important announcement: this snapshot is the last snapshot to feature Window-Eyes command layout for SPL Assistant. Starting from the next development snapshot, people using Window-Eyes layout will receive a warning and migrated to NVDA command layout. This change is also destined for stable channel by late May.

 

Lastly, feature suggestions are still welcome until May 31, 2020. After that, SPL add-on will switch to bug fix only mode unless Studio 5.50 includes new things the add-on needs to support. As for addressing feature suggestions, I’ll let you all know after May.

Cheers,

Joseph
