New version: not launching on Mountain Lion


I cannot call myself an absolute beginner, as I used ebooks for some years now. I still am a beginner with using calibre, I used mostly Stanza for my needs. Still I came to a point where I need to transfer my ebooks from Kindle to iPad2. So... here I am: I have upgraded my calibre software to the latest version (while the former version was working) and not... it does no longer start.
I'm working on a new Macbook Pro Retina, version of the OSX software is 10.8.2. I have replace a 0.8.64 version of calibre with the newest (0.9.20). The output I get when attempting to start from the terminal is:
MBP-2:MacOS mihail$ ./calibre
Python function terminated unexpectedly: 'bool' object is not callable

Any ideas on this?
