Way too many posts about skin/script compatibilities that confuse even experienced users.
My sugestion is to imprement something like min and (optional) max xbmc version to skin's/script's addon.xml so eden skins/scripts can be disabled when upgraded to frodo. Similarily, to prevent pre-frodo skins from install in eden.
Very confusing is the need to use diferent skin names to avoid this, which leads to user using quartz-svn with nightly xbmc builds but have to "change" skin to quartz when stable is released.
Just my two cents.

or add the XBMC version to the add-on version. 10.1.yyyy 11.0.yyyy. I never liked the idea to use a version gap to separate dharma version from eden version.
EDIT: I realize this is also a version gap....but with some logic to it.

Fixed it. By the way, for anyone that doesn't mind tweaking under the hood, just renaming
/Users/frontrow/Library/Application Support/XBMC/addons/script.recentlyadded/RecentlyAdded.py will get everything working for right now until updates are made.

I like the Recently Added feature and was hoping to at least manually correct the problem to get it working again. If nothing else, to keep the constant error notifications from popping up everytime I go to the home screen.
What happens if you refresh one of those episodes?
There might not be any image because, at the time of scraping, there wasn't an image available on the tvdb.

i don't think XBMC version numbers have to do anything with this. it's all about which api or xbmc.gui is used. The recent added script is really an exception to the rule because the functionality has been moved to core.

Nothing. It wasn't a matter of tvdb not having the images as those images were present under Dharma. The existing images disappeared after upgrading to Eden. However, the images and everything returned once I renamed the RecentlyAdded.py file to something else. It was like the core functionality and script file were conflicting with each other since they both were trying to accomplish the same thing at the same time.
