Error: unexpected exception java.lang.NullPointerException

I got this error (end red minimwatch icon) after upgrading Minimserver 0.8.2 to 0.8.3 strictly according to the installation instruction ("Updating MinimServer and Java").

My Setup: Minimserver running on QNAP TS-219P+, firmware: 4.1.1, Minimwatch running on laptop, Win 8.1

Before the current update I was running Minimserver version installed before June 2014 major changes to the MinimServer and Java packages for QNAP.

I succesfully concluded the update process (to Minimserver 0.8.3 and JRE_ARM 8.6.0) but failed to complete restarting the new version of Minimserver - the restarting process take few minutes and the red icon appears with error description: 'unexpected exception java.lang.NullPointerException'.

Attached is the last part of the MinimServer log file.

Please advise how to solve the problem

Thanks for letting me know about this. This problem will be fixed in the next update. As a temporary workaround, you can add

Album.sortTags={Album, Artist}

to the tagOptions property.

I also have this error, and can confirm the workaround enables Minimserver to start correctly.
