    With the recent move to http://dl.bukkit.org, we're happy to announce a change to our building system that people have been wanting for a while now: recommended builds. The way the new system will work is that every week or so we'll be picking a CraftBukkit build and marking it as recommended so that plugin developers have an idea of what build they should be up to date with.

    Recommended versions will be what we consider a "stable" revision of CraftBukkit. This means that we expect plugin developers to support the latest Recommended version at the very least. Plugin developers then also have the option of developing and releasing for the latest builds to help us test and mold the API, but we cannot guarantee any form of stability with development builds.

    Since we only just recently deployed the Recommended builds system, things will not work as we planned: it is highly likely plugin developers will not be caught up for a few days but we hope this change will provide our community with a more stable "release" cycle to work with.

    The latest recommended build can always be found here:
    http://dl.bukkit.org/downloads/craftbukkit/list/rb/

    With this link always pointing to the latest Recommended build download:
    http://cbukk.it/craftbukkit.jar

    And here's an RSS feed for the Recommended Builds system that you can subscribe to for notifications:

    At the moment we have chosen to keep development builds available to the general public, but this may be changing in the future.

    I've come to notice how the changes that don't break most plugins have a tendency to break my one. Though teleporting has always been a bit ... unreliable. Though I'm glad the to and from events are fixed.
