    A new CraftBukkit Recommended Build (#1000) with Minecraft 1.7.3 support is now available. This new build contains a fix for a huge memory leak (resulting in significantly improved performance), a rudimentary Piston API and a built-in permissions system, among other things (for more information, look at the Recommended Build announcement thread linked below).

    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. However, there are possibly changes included in this build that could break some plugins, though this is highly unlikely to happen.

    Known Issues:
    • Signs, chests, furnaces, etc. sometimes wipe under certain circumstances. This is a vanilla Minecraft 1.7 bug that we're still investigating.
    For more detailed information on what is contains in this update, please see the Recommended Build announcement thread here:

    Updating to this Recommended Build is highly recommended as it contains, among many other things, a fix for a huge memory leak that should result in better performance overall. As always, please backup your server before updating, just in case.

  2. Who wants to put money on how long until we get someone without backups asking how to undo something? :D

    This is a win-win. Either the builds are stable and I lose, or I get to steeple my fingers and pronounce that mine is an evil laugh.

    It's a sucker's bet, there are thousands of minecraft servers out there and most of them are run by children. By children I mean people that have yet to grow up and realize that you can't look a gift horse in the mouth. Bukkit is a free server mod service (thank you for all your contributions) that people think they are entitled to because they spent a mere pittance on the initial game (despite the large print stating the game was in alpha/beta and is in development) and feel they are to be waited on hand and foot for something they aren't paying for. People like this annoy me to high hell since someone decided to be nice and share their skills with the community and they spit on the fact that they are doing this of their own free will with their own time, knowledge and resources. If people are so damn impatient, then they can form their own server mod development team and do it themselves. Heck, they don't even need to do that, I'm sure the Bukkit team appreciates the help from outside coders and programmers that help them fix code errors. How many people here do that though? I'm almost sure the number is lower than the total number of fingers on both hands. Players like to gripe about everything, yet don't realize the fact that they actually stall service to themselves simply by using nonconstructive complaints and simply throwing a "tantrum" when things don't go their way.

    Touche! (Missing the inflection on the 'e') Stay the course as you are all doing a ripper job on Bukkit. MUCH appreciated. I can empathise from the days of BBS and email in batches.

    Good luck,

  5. Zephyr, are you involved in debugging or coding for Bukkit? Or was that just an annoyed rant? Im always open to look over code on my spare time, barely started this whole "Minecraft" thing just before 1.8 came out. There is alot of babble on these forums, is there anywhere in here that says when they are projecting an RB for 1.8.1 will be available... or can I expect to play Vanilla till 1.9 or possibly the full release of the game? Anyone with answers would appreciate a response.... And again, if your looking for someone to browse code, well Im always open to new projects when I am not working *which is not often, but I do enjoy it....

    Every time i try to play.. it's keeps on come up with..

    " Connection Loctions wrong: net.minecraft.EntrieChicken"
    What the hell is that about
  7. Oh they annoy me something fierce. Which is why I'd be happy to watch a few of their servers crash and burn. Of course they'd just come complaining here, still not understanding their own part in the fault, but at that point it's either laugh or cry, and children don't make me cry any more.
    There's no ETA that I'm aware of.
    Well I may not know what that's about, but it sounds like the chickens are restless.

    well like i said i have an up to date and everything version of bukkit 1.81 that runs mods current/backwards compatible that im willing to share i just need to upload it...its just a shame the bukkit devs havent gotten this far by now

    Just a bit of an "annoyed rant/cheerleading support for the Bukkit team". If I knew how to code, I'd be glad to help the bukkit team out. I can still do troubleshooting though and post error messages for them though. Something we should all do to help them out IMO.

    And no, there is not yet an RB for 1.8.1 just yet. I wouldn't be surprised if 1.8.2 comes out soon and sets the Bukkit team back a few steps though -.-

    well if i could speak withe team directly soon to show them some of the errors, than yes that would be a viable thing to do, but on the flipside at least can do everything an official build can:)
  11. Cool thanks, Ill keep an eye out for the RB - and keep in mind...that the point of a forum is to bug and ask questions... they set up a seperate forum for posting "bugs and/or errors" - Cant expect people to stay quiet when they are given a microphone -

    Im enjoying playing this in Vanilla anyway... keeps everyone on an equal playing field... well .... keeps the less creative from being

    Eh, it always gets me to see people get so antsy about a RB for Bukkit. The team has put in a ton of effort in the past to release a reliable product, and I have faith it will be the same way this time, so I firmly believe that good things will come to those who wait. In the meantime, my server can play 1.7.3 or they can update and play SP. Doesn't bother me any.

    Not that I share this perspective but, what about people that have regularly donated to the bukkit team? When they ask about ETR for Recommended Builds, should they also be looked upon with the same distaste and bile?

    i concur, and like i stated above, i have fixed the missing pieces so it is as "Official" as it gets, unless your looking for a "Sticker" to slap on it for all the people who want to see its a RB, but wouldn't you look for SOME input when someone is already at the finish line?

    yeah, it's always the same.
    hopefully mojang implements the api engine soon (and commits some performance stuff - my server runs on a ramdisk with a 5-minute disk-synch :-/)

    bravo would be a nice alternative:
    since it's not close to be finished, it's useless :S

    There is a huge difference between constructive criticism and outright douchebaggery. If you do contribute and are patient. then that attitude is not reserved for you. As I said before, this is a free service in which they all donate their own time and resources. Just because you donate does not entitle you to act like a spoiled child. As I said before, it's all about attitude. Just like the people that pay for the beta version of minecraft, they act as though Mojang should be their personal waitstaff. I understand people have questions and comments, but some people go about them in very poorly thought out ways. There is a difference between helpful complaining and angry complaining. Yes, it is all right to ask if there is an ETA on an RB, but NOT when dozens of others have already done this and have been responded to. Also note on donations, you are NOT paying them, but merely dropping them some extra appreciation for their work. It is not much different than the street musician. You don't give them money so they can be your personal bard, you pay them because you appreciate their work and want them to continue.

    So I've been out of the community for a while and I just want to say thanks to all the devs. 1.8.1 has a huge amount of changes so it only makes sense that it is taking a long time to get all the bugs worked out for a RB. I can't wait (but I will patiently) for the new release.
  22. Actually - RB is Recommended Build (Its the official "Released" build but it is the "Recommended" build
  23. Whoops. You are correct. I didn't catch my own mistake. Thanks. :)

    I really can't help but wonder why people are asking what RB stands for when a quick look at lets you know that there is a list of Recommended Builds available.

    Probably the same reason why people ask for 1.8.1 right after someone else has,
    and the same reason why people demand more information for having given tokens of appreciation.


    PS. If you notice, Bukkit has never been released.
