v0.9.16 and problems fetching news/rss

Upon upgrading to v0.9.16, I am unable to fetch the Instapaper newsfeed. The error included in the output is this:
"Python function terminated unexpectedly
unbound method get_browser() must be called with BasicNewsRecipe instance as first argument (got nothing instead) (Error Code: 1)"

I've since switched back to 0.9.15, and it works again, so it isn't something with the Instapaper website.

Anyone else experiencing such problems with either Instapaper or other rss feeds? Or any suggestions for modifying the recipes to comply with perhaps new code requirements in 0.9.16?

Thanks!

If you are using a custom recipe as oppossed to a builtin one, you need to change the line of code that reads

BasicNewsRecipe.get_browser()

to

BasicNewsRecipe.get_browser(self)

If you are using the builtin recipe that change should have been made automatically.

A custom recipe was precisely the issue! (I had been using a modified version of the built-in Instapaper recipe). After using the new built-in recipe as the base, everything works perfectly now.

Thanks for the info Kovid!!
