Following up on yesterday's alert. We have posted patched versions of the NKSE and NKEE downloads. These distributions contain an update to the http-server module to version 2.5.1 containing Jetty 7.2.0.
We discovered that the Jetty 6.1.x series libraries used in the existing distribution builds were triggering the Java regression. The more recent Jetty 7.2.x series does not trigger the same problem.
You have the following choices:
1. Download a clean copy of NKSE or NKEE (note they are both still numbered 4.1.1 since 4.1.1 corresponds with the complete set of "distribution stem system + online repository") . We have tested extensively on different JVMs and these do not now trigger the Java bug.
2. If you have an existing NK install make sure it is running the latest http-server 2.5.1 package by looking in Apposite. If it is, then you will not experience any problem and you do not need to do anything.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Please understand at no point was this a bug in NetKernel - we pride ourselves on our QA. I won't make any pointed remarks about other platforms.
If you do go with a clean download and install, it would be very useful if you can report back to confirm there are no corner cases on different platforms. Notably we'd like to hear about OSX Lion.
