get_iplayer 2.82 has been released. The new release contains a number
of bug fixes (in both command-line script and web pvr) and several new
configuration options. Please see the change log and Git log for details.
Employ the get_iplayer installer:

will detect the new release (if you are connected to the internet) and
offer to upgrade only the get_iplayer component.
If you installed get_iplayer 2.80 with your system's package manager,
the new release should eventually appear in your repositories if and
when the package maintainer is able to make an update. The changes in
version 2.82 do not affect any core functionality, so version 2.80 will

If you installed get_iplayer 2.80 from a tarball and did not use a
package manager or the Windows installer, you may be able to use

To reiterate: Please *do not* use the self-update facility if you
installed get_iplayer with the Windows installer.
PS: For anyone keeping score, the previous release version of
get_iplayer was 2.80. However, there was no version 2.81. It was
withdrawn due to a packaging error discovered immediately after the
release was posted. Your update path goes directly from 2.80 to 2.82.
