Planets?

Forgive me - I'm confused. The BBC claim that another group have issued the first image of an exoplanet using observations of the star GQ Lup with the VLT. It may be the first to be 'imaged', but two other planets were 'seen' recently by the Spitzer Space Telescope, and the VLT thought it may have seen a planet last September. Either way, we have now found 154 exoplanets although none of them are Earth-like.
