    A new CraftBukkit Beta Build (1.4.5-R0.1) that provides Minecraft 1.4.5 compatibility is now available! Please only use this build if you'd like to help us get a new Recommended Build out and don't mind running a preview build to help us test things.

    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. Unless we specifically have to break plugins or the plugins you are using are employing inappropriate practises, most plugins should work without needing an update whenever we put out a new release.

    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.

    The release of Minecraft 1.3 introduced built in auto-save functionality that is completely new to Minecraft: prior to this release, server admins had to provide their own means to save things on their server at a set interval. As a result, the vast majority of servers already have an auto-saving mechanism of some sort, rendering the newly provided built in auto-save largely redundant. On top of this, it was also immediately noticeable that the built in auto-save was the cause of a significant performance hit to the server, even going so far as to lock up the server each time it ran.

    Bearing this in mind, we decided the best course of action was to make the auto-save interval configurable and default to being disabled. By doing so we immediately saw a noticeable performance increase on servers and noticed overwhelmingly positive feedback on our Beta builds. While some might argue that this could leave servers without frequent saving, this change simply reverts behaviour back to what server admins are familiar with from Minecraft 1.2.5.

    As mentioned before, we have made the auto-save interval configurable and disableable within the bukkit.yml. Simply set "ticks-per.autosave" to the number of ticks you want between each save or set it to 0 to disable it completely and use a script or plugin to manage it instead.

    Known Issues:
    • Torch flame graphical glitch resulting in a torch's flame flickering randomly on the screen. This is a Minecraft bug that can't be fixed by Bukkit.
    • Client displays "Unable to locate sign" debug messages under certain circumstances. This is a Minecraft client change that can't be fixed by Bukkit.
    • Monsters, villagers, etc. using portals (added in Minecraft 1.4) has been temporarily disabled.
    For more detailed information on what is contained in this update, please see the changelog here.

    Awesome work guys, Such a shame there's no way to fix the torch flicker tho. But I did kind of predict it was unfix-able as well its clearly client rendering Fingers were still crossed tho as you have worked magic before :D

    Great work y'all. So from what I understand, this version runs with 1.4.4 Minecraft?
  13. Offline


    Yes, 1.4.4 clients work with 1.4.5 servers, and 1.4.5 clients work with 1.4.4 servers.

    Fantastic effort folks.

    The nether portal hold backs relating to entities, are those restrictions still in place?

    Yes, sorry, I forgot to mention that in the announcement. I've amended it.

    Excellent job, great to have a beta build out before the official release.

    I assume this isn't a "support" request... Just have a question regarding the bug fixed in 1.4.4 relating mob spawners having custom NBT data. I tested it with /give and the plugin SilkSpawners, it all works great. But someone on my main server placed a mob spawner and it crashed the server, I'm wondering if that's because the spawner was spawned back in 1.3.2 or the bug wasn't patched properly?
