I assume you meant something like r535.....

See issue #27, comment 23. There was a change in the script syntax: "target" is now "TWTarget". So all scripts need to be updated accordingly.

(And it will probably change again soon. This is an unstable, experimental feature! Once it's a bit more stable again, I'll update the various sample scripts to match. But of course you'll still need to deal with any local copies yourself.)
