We are currently experiencing issues with one of our servers.

This downtime affects the following services:
  • jd.bukkit.org
  • dl.bukkit.org
  • Minecraft Account Association
  • Curse Account Association
  • certain aspects of forums login (now resolved)
  • plugins.bukkit.org
I am working towards a speedy resolution, but cannot at present provide an estimated timeframe for the restoration of the listed services.
Services unaffected include the forums, repo.bukkit.org and BukkitDev.
Thank you for your patience.

Services are coming back online. I will continue monitoring the situation as it normalises.

All services appear to be stable and running normally. Sorry for the downtime!

Technical writeup:

A new CraftBukkit Beta Build (1.7.9-R0.1) that provides Minecraft 1.7.9 compatibility is now available. Please note: the stability of this build is relatively unknown due to the impact Minecraft 1.7 had on the core code.

Will plugins break with this build?
Minecraft 1.7 is one of the most involved and impactful updates to date, bringing about many changes to the core of Minecraft. As a result, there is a chance that plugins might break with this build. Even if that isn't the case, we have not completed work on API changes for 1.7 yet so future builds might still break plugins.

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...

A new CraftBukkit for Minecraft 1.7.9 DEVELOPMENT build is now available!

As of this post, we've shifted development over to Minecraft 1.7.9 compatibility and now have development builds available. We strongly suggest that you only use this build if you would like to help us get a Beta build out sooner and are experienced with using unsupported development builds.

Minecraft 1.7.6+ contains important changes to enable support for the upcoming switch to UUIDs and name changing. We strongly recommend you read our previous article on the switch to UUIDs to help you understand what it means for servers and how to prepare for Mojang allowing name changes by Minecraft 1.8.

WARNING: Minecraft 1.7.9 is an update that requires clients to update before being able to connect. This means that players will not be able to connect to your server if they have not updated to at...
