A new release of Java, version 8 update 161 has just been made available.

We have been informed by a user of an issue with the Designer Data Browser that appears to have occurred as a result of updating to this new version of Java.

The Designer Data Browser allows users to run SQL queries against reference data and imported answer data in the Designer's database. Using Java 8.161 the Data Browser is crashing from time to time when running queries. This is inconvenient for users.

Until we have investigated the issue fully and identified a resolution we advise surveybe users not to download the Java 8.161 update.

If you've already downloaded the update, and are not experiencing any issues, there's no need to take any action.

If you have updated and are having problems with the Data Browser, please let us know by emailing support@surveybe.com and we will advise you how to roll back the Java update.
