Hi Matthew,

Sorry, DinkPumpkin already fed me the fix needed for this.

I probably won't have another beta til next week, but if you're happy
editing python, you can probably fix this at line 2901 or thereabouts of, which looks like this, but with leading tabs and not wrapped:

= re.compile('get_iplayer ([0-9]+\.[0-9]+)')

change this

  re.compile('get_iplayer ([0-9]+\.[0-9]+)')



probably will do it, if

  get_iplayer -V

returns something like 'get_iplayer v2.83-....'  , ie. with a v in front
of version number.
