Investigate jars (why they are necessary) and upgrade whenever possible.
(4) Investigate jars (why they are necessary) and upgrade whenever possible.
It is better for us to make the latest jars available, so that Kepler developers can easily use the latest functionality. The assumption is that later versions are usually better than older versions. Also, we should have a better understanding of the interrelationship between jars and code.

quite a bit of work. I'm not sure if we have the resources to go
through each jar file and update it. Having more tests that exercise
the old and new behaviour would help.
