    I haven't been keeping up, to be honest. How long did it take the Bukkit team to pump out a working 1.4.7 build? It seems like it has taken an awfully long time, which concerns me regarding an actual big update like 1.5.

    2 months, 6 weeks, 12 days, 10 hours, 61mins, 10secs to be exact.

    When its ready it will be released, tell your members not to update or open up a vanilla server till its ready.

    We didn't really need a 1.4.7 build. I believe that the main bugs fixed in MC1.4.7 were already fixed in Craftbukkit 1.4.6-R0.3.

    To be honest, that is pretty fair to say. I noticed that even with 1.4.7, we could connect to a 1.4.6 CB. That was really great. Saved a lot of trouble.

    If I remember correctly, there was a working dev build within days.

    If anyone's curious about the details, here's a complete diff from Minecraft 1.4.6 to 1.4.7, and the changes in the first CraftBukkit 1.4.7 dev build not in 1.4.6: http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/craftbukkit-1-4-7-r0-1-is-now-available.123453/#post-1507955

    For what it's worth, a while ago I ported CraftBukkit to a Minecraft 1.5 snapshot (I think it was 13w02b) as an experiment and it took one day, a full day literally sunrise to sunrise, to get it into a compileable and playable state. It was a fairly tedious task to get there, though it may be easier for someone more familiar with the process (on the other hand, there could have been more changes since 13w02b which could make updating more difficult than when I looked at it, who knows).

    But even at this point, although usable it wasn't a complete merge; going over every single edited NMS class to ensure all the proper edits are in, would undoubtedly take a while. Patience =) However, the good news is that once this painful process is completed once (per Minecraft update), all plugins using the Bukkit API can benefit from it without having to perform the updating themselves – the genius of the Bukkit API as an abstraction layer to "insulate" plugins from the volatile internals of Minecraft itself.

    If all you wait for is RB's, then you'll be waiting a while once 1.5 is released.

    We often have dev builds and beta builds out much faster.

    Last time I ran RB was 1.2.5 I believe. :p
