GATK 3.8 log4j error

I just upgraded from GATK 3.7 to the newly released GATK 3.8 (3.8-0-ge9d806836) and I am getting a StatusLogger error:

ERROR StatusLogger Unable to create class org.apache.logging.log4j.core.impl.Log4jContextFactory specified in jar:file:/path/GenomeAnalysisTK-3.8-0/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar!/META-INF/
ERROR StatusLogger Log4j2 could not find a logging implementation. Please add log4j-core to the classpath. Using SimpleLogger to log to the console...

Despite the error message, the tools seem to work just fine as far as I can tell.

Is this really an error? Is there a way to fix it?
