Information regarding our last release can be found:
For Windows PC users, using Oracle requires a base level of Java JRE version 1.8.0_141 which all of our users have already. There is no harm for
windows users to update to JAVA JRE 1.8.0_181. MAC PC users only, when logging in for the first time after October 22, will be required to update
to Java JRE version 1.8.0_181. If users receive a popup message that a more recent version is available, they should NOT act upon the request.
MAC users should use Safari as their Browser.
