rename.jar
If this file has suddenly appeared in your Fragile Soul directory, be not afeared! All you have to do is run this jar, and you only need to do it once.

What, run a random file? What does it do?
Glad you asked! I've since made a lot of changes to the updater (some of them larger than others), and it needs to be updated as a result. So in your update, there will also be a launcher.jar (or .exe if you're on windows). This needs to be renamed to fs_laucher.jar (or .exe), so that's what this little .jar does! And what's best is if there are other updates to the launcher, the new version will run this automatically when it finds a launcher.jar (or .exe) in the update, so you don't ever have to worry about it again.

Okay... but why is this necessary?
It's not as necessary for Windows users, as for them it would mostly be cosmetic changes. However, for users of Linux or OS X, the way updates have been handled has changed entirely. So for future updates after update 10, users of the old launcher (for Linux and OS X) will not be able to update at all, as the name scheme for it has changed.

Other than that it's just a few small additions, like the ability to delete the data and assets folder if I need to overhaul them entirely (but that would really only be necessary for the data folder in most cases), and some polish stuff.

That's all to do with that, catch you on the flip side!
