A Recommended Build candidate with Minecraft 1.5.2 support is now available!
What's an RB Candidate?
A Recommended Build candidate is a build of CraftBukkit we designate as having an extremely high chance of becoming our next Recommended Build release. These candidates are released to help facilitate and direct testing efforts within the community to ensure that we are, indeed, ready to release it. As many servers rely on our Recommended Build system to run their servers with the peace of mind that their production servers will run without any problems, we like to focus the efforts of our community on testing our candidates to make sure that there are no glaring bugs present.
If there are no issues discovered with this RB Candidate, we'll likely be promoting this build to a proper Recommended Build soon afterwards.
Why did this RB take so long?
Many servers within the Minecraft community have grown to trust our Recommended Builds system as a sure fire way to run a...
A new CraftBukkit Beta Build (1.5.2-R0.1) that provides Minecraft 1.5.2 compatibility is now available.
Will plugins break with this build?
Provided the developers of the plugins you are using are keeping up with the development of Bukkit, all your plugins should work fine, with the exception of plugins that use Minecraft or CraftBukkit code.
What is a Beta build?
A Beta Build is in between a developer build and a Recommended Build. These builds simply work and are promoted much more frequently than a Recommended Build. While we will do some testing before promoting a beta build, we will not be running it through our extensive test process. As such, there are no guarantees that they will not contain minor bugs. If we do find out they are broken, we will mark it as such on DLB and promote a new one. A beta build may contain incomplete API and new features but they should not interfere with running the build in any way.
This particular Beta build, like every first Beta...
With the news that the Minecraft 1.5.2 update will be released some time this week, we've decided to push out a developer quality build (i.e. "it compiles and runs", no guarantees) to help us get to a Beta release faster. As of this post, we've shifted development over to Minecraft 1.5.2 compatibility and now have development builds available with Minecraft 1.5.2 support. While we would love to be able to do this for every Minecraft update, the speed at which we can update is determined by the size and complexity of the update and this varies with each release.
Please only use this build if you're familiar with the Minecraft snapshot/pre-release process and would like to help us get a Beta Build out soon after Minecraft 1.5.2 is officially released. This build is COMPLETELY UNSUPPORTED and if you do not know how to acquire Minecraft 1.5.2 early to use it, you should not be running it. We will be deleting any questions asking how to get this usable. If you have to ask where or how to...
