Have used JBidWatch for many months. Today though, from about 8pm GMT Snipe has failed, and continues to do so. Machine has been rebooted and Snipe synchronises OK. However, error message received is:

“Bidding £22.50 apparently failed for an unknown reason. Check the auction in the browser, to see if the bid went through.”

When checking the browser the bid did not go through.

Anyone able to help/confirm problem?

Yeah, eBay changed their bidding confirmation page, and messed JBidwatcher up. Small change, big effect.

I’ve got a 0.9.3pre1 fix ready to go, I’m just testing it, since it also has my changes since 0.9.2 in it.
