Just downloaded/configured turnkey-jenkins-12.0 - which runs jenkins 1.464, I'd like to upgrade it to latest (1.513 as shown in jenkins UI) as some of the Android based plugins require it. I'm a linux newbie so apolgies if it's just a case of dumping the updated jenkins war file somewhere. 
 
how can I do this? or am I tied to the turnkey build of jenkins?

So the typical tomcat deployment by replacing the jenkins.war at /var/lib/tomcat6/webapps/jenkins seems to work (make sure you take backups encase it doesn't)

I had to alter permissions on jenkins.war so that tomcat could read/unpack it. 

Logged in to jenkins and shows version 1.513 yay! 

however in the admin console there was an noification about security issue that linked to https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/SECURITY/Jenkins+Security+Advisory+2...

I followed the link in the noification to reKey, that completed ok. boom! all good on the latest jenkins.
