Three days ago we were forced to lock down our build server, ci.bukkit.org, due to high load from all of you eagerly smashing F5 to see if a new Recommended Build had come out. While it is awesome that we have such a following that this is even possible, unfortunately CI runs on the same box as the rest of our sites and took down our site and forums whenever CI was under heavy load.

As a result, I had to make the difficult decision of stopping all public access to our build service in order to restore stability and reliability to our website and forums. Once we had done this and the site was mostly reachable and usable, we immediately went on a hunt to determine what the cause of the poor performance was on our servers. Although the site is relatively stable, we're still seeing problems crop up now and again and are doing whatever we can to get down to the bottom of things. As part of this effort, we'll be experiencing minimal downtime on Monday as we'll be updating various...

Today marks what could possibly be the largest protest across the internet to date. Many people have banded together to show their dislike and support against the SOPA and PIPA legislation and other bills like it.

I think I can speak for the team that we strongly disagree with such archaic limitations of our freedoms. So why aren't we protesting or blacking out bukkit.org?

Simple. We feel that we'd be preaching to the choir. Our community is filled with technically informed individuals who have probably already heard of the crisis a hundred times over. A small site like ours going black would achieve little other than causing an inconvenience for everyone. Larger sites like Google, Wikipedia and the like are already sending the message out there loud and clear and are the ones who can really make a difference.

While the current legislation mostly affects Americans, there are similar bills attempting to be...

For those of you who frequent our IRC channels and use the XChat-WDK (not sure if regular XChat or other variants are affected) or Pidgin client, the IRC network we're using was recently hit by individuals who have found a way to crash your clients. If you find that your client keeps crashing when starting up or connecting to our channels, update your client to the latest version.

If updating XChat-WDK doesn't work, try the following:
Delete %APPDATA%\X-Chat 2\scrollback

If updating Pidgin doesn't work, try the following:
Download, install and enable this plugin:

You may or may not have to clear your log/scrollback too.

We'll update this post as we discover ways to fix it on affected clients.

Our Jenkins build site is currently unavailable due to high load.

While it is down, you may download the latest RB from here.
You may also download the latest 1.1 development non-recommended build from here.

For developers only: You may download the latest version of the Bukkit API here

We apologize for the lack of an immediate post about this matter, and hope to have Jenkins available again soon.
