    When rumours were abound of the coming of Minecraft 1.5, we were quite frantic since we were just beginning work on a new, better update handling process and were afraid the update would hit before we were ready to handle it. Luckily, to our delight, Mojang experienced a feature creep and couldn't meet the original estimated time of release, resulting in the update being delayed until the week after. While some of you were disappointed with the delay, we were happy and thankful as it gave us the weekend to push to complete the transition to our new update process.

    Unfortunately, when the Minecraft update was finally released, we were still finalising the move over to our new update process and this caused some delay. Quite a few of you were unhappy about this and we understand your frustration but we, honestly, feel the delay was for the better. With this new update process, barring local issues we have with our development environments, there should be less confusion and hard to trace bugs with future Minecraft updates. While we could have released a Recommended Build shortly after we had the update done (since we had Bukkit compatible and working with Minecraft 1.5_02 already), I made the decision for us to work out some of the issues that we were sure people would experience due to changes in Minecraft: like the addition of strict limits on certain things like chat or sign text, etc.

    Anyway, let's cut to the chase:
    We're happy to finally make available a Recommended Build for Minecraft 1.5_02 that you can grab and put on your servers right now, using the link below.

    Download CraftBukkit for Minecraft 1.5_02

    If you're just getting started, please read and follow this guide:
    BukkitWiki - Setting up a server

    Common Problems/Questions:
    I downloaded build 733 but got some other build!
    You're probably reading the version string incorrectly.

    Here's an example version string:
    git-Bukkit-0.0.0-700-gf3ae4c3-b733jnks (MC: 1.5_02)

    This version string is for build 733, as you can tell by the "b733jnks" at the end.

    Whenever I use a plugin that changes blocks, I can't see the changes until I reconnect!
    We had an issue with blocks not updating properly but this has since been fixed from build #707. This bug affected plugins that changed blocks in game, like WorldEdit. Update to the Recommended Build b733 to fix this.

    Help! My console keeps getting spammed with this error whenever someone gets kicked or disconnects and it lags the server!
    This is a bug we've fixed from build #701 onwards.

    Update to the Recommended Build b733 to fix this.

    I can't build or destroy anything! Help!?
    The common cause of this issue is a client mod called Single Player Commands, please try uninstalling all your client mods and seeing if this fixes the issue. If this is the case, then it isn't a Bukkit issue and you should contact the author of the mods you use.

    Every time I connect to the server and load a sign, the client crashes. What's wrong?
    Minecraft 1.5 has added limits for sign text. Plugin developers commonly used longer sign text to store extra data or add colours to signs. This is no longer possible, so we now cut off any line in a sign longer than 15 characters (as of build #712).

    Update to the Recommended Build b733 to fix this.

    I get kicked when flying and am told that flying hasn't been enabled on this server. How do I enable flying?
    Minecraft 1.5 added anti-flying checks. You can enable flying by setting allow-flight=true in server.properties.

    Whenever I try to send a long message in chat, it gets cut off at roughly two lines.
    A limit on chat has been added with Minecraft 1.5.

    Update to the Recommended Build b733 to fix this.

    Help! When I use the CLI arguments to set ports (or any setting), the server always starts up on 25565 or ignores the setting![/COLOR][/U]
    There was a bug that prevented the server from reading settings passed through CLI arguments. This has since been fixed from build #706 onwards.

    Update to the Recommended Build b733 to fix this.

    When lightning strikes a painting, the server crashes!
    There was a bug that caused the server to throw an error or freeze when a painting was struck by lightning, this has since been fixed from build 734 onwards. While this isn't a Recommended Build, it contains only this change and shouldn't break anything, so feel free to upgrade to this build to fix this issue.

    People are using a duping exploit involving workbenches!
    We've fixed this duping issue from build b735 onwards.

    While this isn't a Recommended Build, it contains only this change and shouldn't break anything, so feel free to upgrade to this build to fix this issue.

    Whenever I do something in game, like place a block, I get disconnected with an End of Stream error!
    This can be caused by an outdated or broken texture pack. Please try testing with a completely unmodified Minecraft client and see if it works then. If it does, you'll need to find a new texture pack or mod, get the author to fix it or run Minecraft without them.

    I can't ban anyone!
    This issue is usually caused by an outdated plugin, like Essentials. You should be keeping your plugins up to date - especially when an update hits - as they could contain fixes that make all the difference in the operation of your server.

    As Essentials isn't properly communicating updates with the community at the moment (and their plugin appears to be the leading cause of this issue), many of you are still running a version that prevents banning from working. Please update to 2.2.x (or whatever the latest is) to fix this issue.

    If this hasn't fixed this issue, make sure you've updated all your other plugins too.

    I can't spawn any mobs!

    As Essentials isn't properly communicating updates with the community at the moment (and their plugin appears to be the leading cause of this issue), many of you are still running a version that prevents mobs from naturally spawning. Please update to 2.2.x (or whatever the latest is) to fix this issue.

    If this hasn't fixed this issue, make sure you've updated all your other plugins too.

    The easiest fix for most problems is to update to the Recommended Build b733.

    Thanks for your patience, support and the many kind words you've all sent our way!

    New Recommended Build: #739

    This new build addresses some remaining issues that we didn't notice when we were testing the previous RB, like the server freezing when lightning strikes a painting.

    There are no breaks in this build so all plugins should work fine.

    FlyMod is buggy in builds 738 and 739, deals fall damage when you fly to the ground.
    It doesn't do this 737 and previous.

    I reported this in Leaky.

    Are you talking about zombe's fly mod? If you are, your post is completely and utterly ridiculous.Bukkit has nothing to do with fly mod. It never has and never will support any client-side modification.

    If you're talking about a Bukkit plugin that allows for flight, go report the error in the respective thread. Do not post plugin errors here. If this is the case, your post is slightly less ridiculous. :)

    Nevermind, just talked with EvilSeph and he said he fixed an exploit that allowed for clients to negate fall-damage (which would cause issues with fly mods). Sorry, I just enjoy calling posts ridiculous. My mouth is full of foot.

    New Recommended Build: #740

    Addresses the block lag in the last RB. Sorry about that guys! I'm always moving when I dig so I didn't notice it in testing!

    Alright guys, not to add to the list, but for some reason I keep getting a random server crash that says "Read Time out"

    Is that in the CB build or the server box, or the minecraft server?

    Hey bukkit,
    My server has currently been lagging for a lot of the players playing on my server, since the 1.5 update.
    Will there be a fix to this soon?
    There has just been a lot of people complaining, sorry to add to the list of problems.

    Thanks, keep up the good work!

    Just wanted to acknowledge that we see the many bug reports coming in about the Minecraft 1.5 compatible builds and are looking into it. However, I don't want to get anyones' hopes up - there is no guarantee we can solve these issues.

    So far, we have been unable to reproduce these issues and that makes for more difficult bug squashing. On top of this, we're seeing reports of these issues happening in vanilla, too. So there is a high chance it isn't something caused by Bukkit and possibly not something we can fix, though we might try anyway.

    Sometime soon, I'll be writing up a troubleshooting guide (probably specifically for Minecraft 1.5) so that we can be sure what is a vanilla bug and what is a Bukkit bug. From that point onward, we'll have a better idea of what we're working with and hope we can sort out these issues. Shortly after that, I hope to head a movement to compound all the information we have on these issues, probably in a forum thread on here. If anything, this will hopefully give us something to work with to replicate the issues.

    Please do remember, however, that Bukkit is a only a server mod and it isn't really within the scope of the project for us to fix vanilla bugs. Nonetheless, it is clear that these issues are affecting a large number of servers so we hope to do something about it.

    Seconded, exact same problems on my server. It randomly freezes and starts giving Read time out errors, not letting you even stop it. Most of the times it wakes up after a while, but sometimes it requires restarting Bukkit. And this has only been happening with 733 and 740, never happened with 6xx, or 5xx, or Vanilla Server. Also when it requires restarting, it leaks a lot of memory. ;)

    we had this problem before aquiring bigbrother
    i changed system memory allocation from programs to system cache, and took off the -server command line. if this fails, we will change -xmx1g to -xmx768mb and see if that helps.
    using last sucessful build 754
    EDIT: taking off the -server command lined helped alot. but it still happens occasionally. we kind of think we MAY being DOS attacked. would being DOS attacked cause the socketexceptiontimedoutexception?

    Unfortunately, the speedhack code is not disablable, so the only way to solve this is to use a custom build of bukkit.
