HI, Dear GATK team,

I downloaded the new released version of GATK-2.7.4. However, when I tested it with commands " java -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -h" under the right directory, It showed as followings and it was the same even I re-downloaded and run it. (There is no problem on my Linux system with java version 1.7.0_25). Very appreciated if you can answer me on it!
