Release Notes

get_iplayer 2.97 Release Notes

Read First

  • get_iplayer 2.97 is a bug fix release. No deprecated features have been removed. The purpose of this release is to restore functionality in the Web PVR Manager that was broken by recent browser upgrades and Windows updates.

  • If you haven't already read the release notes for get_iplayer 2.96, read them now.

Fixed

  • Google Chrome 53, Opera 40 and Firefox 49 implemented a change in the WHATWG HTML specification for the <label> element that broke most links in the Web PVR Mananger, rendering it useless. The WPM has been amended to work around this problem. The new code should still work in older versions of those browsers.
  • Windows update KB3185319 (Cumulative Security Update for IE 11) implemented changes in the handling of internet shortcut (.url) files that caused an "Unknown File Type" warning dialog to appear when launching the Web PVR Manager in all browsers on Windows. The WPM is safe to launch, but a workaround has been implemented to prevent the warning dialog from appearing.
  • Fixed a typo that prevented the hlsvhigh recording mode from being included in default value of tvmode option.
