Version Checker
This plugin uses a version checker to notify you about available updates.
This updater is disabled by default and can be enabled in config/brotkasten.conf by setting the value VersionChecker to true.
If enabled it will asynchronously check (once per server start) if the Ore repository has any updates.
This will only print update notes into the server log, no files are being downlaoded!

You can’t perform that action at this time.
