The attached external tool is for use only by those who want to engage in beta testing.
This tool will replace the bundled 'jAlbum core update tool' in the list of external tools, to revert to the bundled tool simply remove this one from the tools folder of your jAlbum config folder.
The tool will install both formal core updates for non-beta versions of jAlbum and beta core updates (and if included in a beta core update any associated texts.properties file.)
With this tool there is no need to remember the static address for beta updates.

Updated to include an option to look for beta core updates that have no preceding beta installer. Only recommend if David has released a core update file before releasing an installer, or if you like to live dangerously and being amongst the first to try stuff. Definitely no responsibility accepted by me for those using this feature.
