So Minecon is over, and we all had a blast! Between giving random autographs, helping out lots of people with issues, and explaining why bukkit isn't out yet, we were working on updating bukkit live at our booth for people to come watch!
We also had a panel during the first day, which was really scary but also lots of fun for all of us. We initially wanted to split it into three parts - intro, Q&A and then twitter Q&A for those who couldn't join us in person, but unfortunately there just wasn't enough time as we had so many great questions to answer.
Unfortunately again we also only had one mic, so the sound quality isn't as awesome as we'd like, but we're working on getting subtitles/captions up soonish to help clear up anything you can't hear
For those who are curious, the team members are, in order from left to right: EvilSeph, Dinnerbone, Grum, and Tahg.
In less than a week, the launch event for our favourite game takes place: Minecon! It’s been a really long time but Minecraft will soon be out of beta and will finally reach version 1.0.
The entire Bukkit core team: Dinnerbone, Tahg, Grum and myself will be at Minecon. We’ll have a booth on the floor and we’ll have our very own panel. If you’re going to be at Minecon, come check out our booth and you’ll get to meet us! Since Minecraft v1.0 will be released at Minecon, we’ll be doing a live update to Bukkit at our booth, so come find us and you’ll get to see, first hand, what goes into getting Bukkit ready for a newly released Minecraft update.
We hope to see you there!
Update! Fun stuffs!
During our panel, we'll be doing an open Q&A for people to come ask us anything they like about bukkit or minecraft. However, we realize that a lot of people would like to attend but can't. With this in mind, I'd like to present you all a chance to join in from your very homes.
Our bug tracker, affectionately named Leaky, is currently down due to technical difficulties. The HDD on the server hosting Leaky is having issues. The issue is being worked on but we're not sure how long it will take to get it back up. In the meantime, we'll be investigating our steps forward; looking into an alternative solution or setting up redmine on a server again.
We may have a backup of the database but it is severely outdated. On the bright side, we've been working on cleaning up Leaky anyway, so we may be moving to a different system - possibly GitHub or another self-hosted solution.
We'll keep you posted as we have information. Thank you for your continued support and understanding in this matter.
