Variable file reader build task bombs after upgrade to Bamboo 8.


EDIT: Self-corrected. It was subsequently realized that this was due to an out of date add-on. Welp!


The below stack trace happens whenever Variable File Reader runs. Prior version of Bamboo was 6.x, where it worked fine. I have tried recreating the build tasks in question, but still with the same java.lang.NoSuchMethodError result.

Running on Oracle JDK 11. Same result with JRE 1.8.
