Error

Here is the error message:

gPodder requires Python 2.7. Do you want to install it now?

Multiple Places

When it's fixed, it's always announced in multiple places and the version number will change. This bug is updated (and the title switched to Fixed) and the new release is announced on the homepage/rss/twitter. It also automatically shows up in the PortableApps.com Platform's updater, which is the recommended way to get it. You can track progress until then here: https://portableapps.com/development/outdated

Fixed in 3.3.0 Rev 2

This has been fixed in 3.3.0 Rev 2. Platform users with 3.3.0 installed will get a quick-install incremental update of under 2MB. Sorry this took a couple days longer to fix than expected.

Download Location

Did it change download location? All my previously downloaded podcasts are missing. Is there anyway to fix this?

Nope

It's exactly the same. If you're seeing this issue, please create a new forum post in this forum with all the details (old version, version upgraded to, operating system, install path, etc).

Download Location

I don't know the version number that was before two updates ago but the download location was gPodderPortable\Data\config\Downloads.

But now the download location is gPodderPortable\Data\downloads. No longer in config.

I fixed this issue by cutting the downloads folder from config and pasting it into the data directory.
