The master branch has already a few fixes, and we are now working on tickets like JENKINS-38889, which we can ship quite soon. A hotfix with just this fix is doable, but I would rather wait to release everything in the next days.
The plug-in is part of the BioUno project. And we will have a project meeting on November 18th. I just replied the meeting announcement e-mail from Ioannis Moutsatsos suggesting to cut a release before the meeting, and another release before the end of the year - https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/biouno-users/2Scg0u6V3kM
So if, besides this ticket, there are any other features/bugs that you would like to get shipped in the next releases, just reply here or join the hangout
