    Release Notes: This release adds the ability to filter which PVR searches are run and the ability to exclude PVR searches by name. It allows you to sort by connection priority in mode numbering. It has an improved user agent function. It will skip subtitles download if the file already exists. It adds the modeshort substitution parameter, which is the same as mode but without the trailing digit. It makes sure that any file prefix that specifies mode doesn't use the trailing digit to prevent duplicate recordings in some cases. It adds BBC Radio Sussex into local radio lists. It fixes a regression bug where URLs would not get recorded. There is a new Web PVR Manager with new Record functionality.

      Release Notes: The iPhone mode was updated due to a BBC change that removed the stream data from the public XML metadata. If --pid is used with series or brand, PIDs/URLs will now list all contained episodes. If --pid-recursive is used with the above, it will record all the contained brand/series episodes. Search now applies to the concatenated fields as opposed to each field individually. The ability to get iPlayer program metadata and thumbs even if a program is unavailable was added. The use of --metadataonly, --subsonly, or --thumbonly options will now prevent recording when used with --pid. Many other changes were made.

        Release Notes: The --future and --refresh-future options were added to allow searching of future programme schedules for BBC Radio and TV. The nameshort and episodeshort fields were added, which are Series and Episode with numbers stripped out. The <senum> field was added to contain s##n## format for XBMC series and episode number parsing. The <descshort> and <descmedium> fields were added. Running the PVR is now faster due to caching the cache and history files in memory. The available radio channels were updated. The --refresh-include option was added so that only matching channels are indexed.

          Release Notes: Improved series/episode number extraction from meta-data. Improved episode name extraction from meta-data to include episode number where appropriate.

It adds the --pvrscheduler option to run the PVR at regular intervals. It fixes a bug where stat was called on a non-existent cache file in debug mode. It adds a workaround where abs_path does not work in Win32. It fixes flvstreamer/rtmpdump version detection.

            Release Notes: Automatic detection is done of whether a URL is http:// or <type>:http:// in a search term, and is then set as if it were a --url option. A change from 2.21 was reverted, and system-wide options are read additionally from /etc/get_iplayer/, as /var/lib/get_iplayer/ violates the FHS and Debian policy. Extended metadata is gotten if --fileprefix is used. Extended, alternate, and duplicate programme versions that have no version name set in the meta-data are allowed. Some deprecated options were removed. The --ignorechannels option was added, which causes matching channels not to be indexed when refreshed. Embedded MP3 flashaudio programmes that do not have the encoding attribute set are parsed.

              Release Notes: iphone mode was fixed after BBC changed things earlier this week. Improvements and fixes were made to mms and rtsp URL parsing from asx and ram playlists, which now parses new wma radio stream metadata. A new pattern was added to connection metadata parsing for AAC audio, which fixes world service. The purchaseDate tag was removed from AtomicParsley tagging, as this causes problems with iTunes. Unsubstituted tags in metadata files are stripped out. The URL passed to a prepend type proxy request is now URL encoded. A bug where stream metadata lookup was skipped if only iphone mode was specified was fixed. The --itvnothread option was changed to --mmsnothread.

                Release Notes: Episode and season numbers and aired date were added to metadata files and nfo files. The --fatfilename option was added for DOS users. The AtomicParsley tagging was tweaked some more to make it more iTunes firendly. Using the full datespec for the year tag in AtomicParsley MP4 tagging was fixed.

                  Release Notes: This release fixes a bug with iPlayer HD where an authstring typo in level3/iplayertok CDN rtmp parameters often caused it to fail.

                    Release Notes: This release adds a --before option to limit search results to programs added before a specified number of hours. It fixes a bug where the --atomicparsley path override was ignored. It adds advisory and genre tags to AtomicParsley tagging. It uses full datespec for the year tag in AtomicParsley tagging. It sets the AtomicParsley MP4 'stik' tag to 'Film' or 'TV Show' depending on the program category. It fixes a bug where non-Unix systems set the $HOME environment variable and subsequently had the wrong profile/preferences directories set.

                      Release Notes: Support was added for new flashvhigh, flashhigh, flashstd, and flashnormal BBC Live TV modes. Detection was added for different audio rtmp AAC stream bitrates. flashaac is now expanded into flashaachigh, flashaacstd, and flashaaclow. AtomicParsley support was added for tagging mp4 files. A check was added for generated filename paths longer than 255 characters. The localfiles plugin no longer uses the Unix find command, so it will work under Win32. Name and episode extraction from URL title metadata was fixed. Thumbnail download is done before running user commands.
