Updating Java version?

I noticed that there is an update for the log4j issue. But when I download the java version it's still 3.0.5.

Is the java download going to be updated? I can manually update the log4j files in lib but that will probably break the hashes in minion.xml

Thanks!

The answer to how to update the jar file download on Linux is posted in the Sticky post about running Minion on Linux.

Basically,
  • change to the Minion directory
  • copy the existing jar file and lib directory to a backup directory
  • run Minion via terminal command "java -jar Minion-jfx.jar"
  • tell it to update (it won't restart)
  • copy the new Minion jar file and lib directory from the new "null" directory into the main Minion directory
  • restart to the new version

Just tried this at my linux machine at office, it works perfectly.
