When will Bukkit be updated for Minecraft 1.5?

    We have completed the update to Minecraft 1.5_02 (and have had it done for a while now) and are working out a few issues before we promote a recommended build. A TEST ONLY build is available but we highly recommend that you wait until we promote a Recommended Build before putting it on your production server.

    You can find the latest test build on ci.bukkit.org. Please note, though, that if you don't already know how to get it, you probably shouldn't be using it. Only Recommended Builds have gone through extensive testing. Anything else could result in unforeseen problems like Bukkit eating your cake or your world. You have been warned.


    Common Problems/Questions:
    What's the first build that works with Minecraft 1.5_02
    The first CraftBukkit build that works with Minecraft 1.5_02 was made available 2 days ago and is build #689. However, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that if you are running the test builds, you always stay up to date as we usually fix bugs, exploits and improve stability.

    I downloaded build 714 but got some other build!
    You're probably reading the version string incorrectly.

    Here's an example version string:
    git-Bukkit-0.0.0-686-g71ef92a-b714jnks (MC: 1.5_02)

    This version string is for build 714, as you can tell by the "b714jnks" at the end.

    Whenever I use a plugin that changes blocks, I can't see the changes until I reconnect!
    We had an issue with blocks not updating properly but this has since been fixed from build #707. This bug affected plugins that changed blocks in game, like WorldEdit.

    Help! My console keeps getting spammed with this error whenever someone gets kicked or disconnects and it lags the server!
    This is a bug we've fixed from build #701 onwards.

    I can't build or destroy anything! Help!?
    The common cause of this issue is a client mod called Single Player Commands, please try uninstalling all your client mods and seeing if this fixes the issue. If this is the case, then it isn't a Bukkit issue and you should contact the author of the mods you use.

    Every time I connect to the server and load a sign, the client crashes. What's wrong?
    Minecraft 1.5 has added limits for sign text. Plugin developers commonly used longer sign text to store extra data or add colours to signs. This is no longer possible, so we now cut off any line in a sign longer than 15 characters (as of build #712).

    I get kicked when flying and am told that flying hasn't been enabled on this server. How do I enable flying?
    Minecraft 1.5 added anti-flying checks. You can enable flying by setting allow-flight=true in server.properties.

    Whenever I try to send a long message in chat, it gets cut off at roughly two lines.
    A limit on chat has been added with Minecraft 1.5. This is one of the issues we're hoping to address before we promote a Recommended Build.

    Help! When I use the CLI arguments to set ports (or any setting), the server always starts up on 25565 or ignores the setting!
    There was a bug that prevented the server from reading settings passed through CLI arguments. This has since been fixed from build #706 onwards.

    The easiest fix for most problems is to update to the latest Bukkit test build.


    As is the case with every Minecraft update, we saw our usual influx of extra traffic from people wondering if we have a build of CraftBukkit working with the Minecraft update seconds after release (seriously). Usually, you'd see a pretty standard post from me stating we're working on an update and providing the usual advice that you aren't forced to update. However, this time there was a distinct lack of communication from the team regarding the status of the update, other than the usual "we're working on it". Couple this with the slow development occurring lately and we can forgive people for posting the expected "is Bukkit dead?" or "what's going on?" posts. I hope this post will explain everything.

    Will there be a CraftBukkit for Minecraft 1.5?
    Given the reports of showstopping bugs present in 1.5, there's a high chance a new bugfix update for Minecraft will be out tomorrow or even several times this week. As a result, it is unlikely we will be releasing a 1.5 compatible build and, instead, will be waiting for something stable to work with.

    Due to the nature of the project and the methods we use to provide Bukkit for Minecraft, any update - no matter how small - requires us to figure out the mapping of obfuscated classes and update our code. This takes a lot of time and work, so hopefully you understand our decision.

    Having said all this, we recommend that you stay on 1.4 for a while until the patch storm subsides if your server depends on Bukkit.

    Further, I wanted to apologise for the lack of communication regarding this update. I was really hesitant announcing this since it would only serve to disappoint and annoy people, however, I noticed quite a few supportive comments on here and IRC that pushed me to post this announcement because the people that have supported us through everything deserve it.

    Why are things so quiet? Why is the update taking so long?
    Before I answer this, I think it is appropriate to cover what usually happens when we're aware of an update coming soon. Whenever we recieve word of a Minecraft update (which, contrary to popular belief, is generally the same time as everyone else), we place all development in the Bukkit project under a code freeze to prepare for the update and make things easier. That being said, last week thursday we were expecting a Minecraft update and appropriately placed the project under a code freeze. Unfortunately, the update was delayed and pushed to the next week, resulting in a much longer code freeze than normally occurs. Naturally, this lead to activity within the project seeming critically lower than it really was and prompted some people to post the inevitable "what's going on?" thread.

    On top of the code freeze, we're working on some larger changes to Bukkit or CraftBukkit that require quite a bit of time to complete and will only be commited to the public code when they are ready. Quite often you'll find that, while you don't see any updates, we definitely are still working hard programming awesome things and appreciate your patience and support.

    So why is this update taking so long? After we had updated for Minecraft 1.4, we came across some annoying chunk related issues and bugs that were incredibly difficult to pinpoint due to confusion with the new obfuscated names mappings (d -> c and c -> d). Naturally, these kinds of issues were unacceptable for the project and we immediately got to work on improving our update process to avoid issues of this nature in the future. While I think we can all agree with this decision, the unfortunate result is the delay we're currently facing since we're not yet done improving the process. The good news is, we're nearly done improving our update handling process and the wait will definitely be worth it come future updates.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding!

    Yes, it is out for servers, but if the stability issue is in the main game, then the update for everything will need to be out first. That is why I am hoping for both updates to be stable.
  8. Could CB change the version to "Recommended build" so this stupid piece of software McMyAdmin will pickup the new version and install it not keep outdating the server every time it starts.

    I should clarify, and provide a link to the original posting detailing the ban.

    We don't allow sharing of unofficial builds within the Bukkit project. Of course anyone can do nearly whatever they want with the code including distributing, but we are within the license to disallow such sharing within the spaces we control. The main point is that it is very difficult to tell if something is 'official' or not, so we have a blanket ban on distributing any build.

    If someone would like to host builds they can - we just do not allow them to advertise it on the forums, IRC etc.

    Hope that adds some clarity to our position.

    See the following for more information:

    Whenever a new Recommended Build is created it is widely advertised, particularly when its to a minecraft update.

    If you want to know when that happens, watch the front page, or one of the many other ways news is promulgated (IRC, twitter etc)

    Please, do not spam this thread, infractions will be given.

    It would be nice if the Build numbers could incorporate the MC server that they are based upon in to the title, for example CB #XXXvV.V Where XXX is the Build Number and V.V is the Minecraft Server version.

    Yes It is I was just running Bukkit with 1.5_02 Try looking Here!

    This is why my server is staying on 1.4_01 until I see a version 1.6, I think some will agree 1.5.x is still far to buggy to be used on any server wishing to give two shits how it runs.

    Far enough I host a Home server that runs happily with 20 players but that does not mean im going to run a server that drops every 5th player and time outs everyone just for sake of keeping up with the latest gossip and version.

    I will choose a version that is stable enough to be playable for more then 40mins with out issues over the abundant complaints I will get if I even dare host 1.5.x in its current state.

    I have tested 1.5_02 with Bukkit installed and my main staff members who normaly join and play just fine with minimal lag now cannot even connect and instead get dropped with the "Cannot remove existing player" error or there clients just crash on login.

    this is running on a FRESH clean bukkit install purely for the sake of testing 1.5 while my main server runs completely fine on 1.4_01.

    The only issues we are having with our main server right now is the constant flood of 1.5 client connections.
    Just to rap this post up I will conclude in saying that why bother updating to 1.5 if not all of your plugins are updated or known to be working.

    I need to wait for Multiverse and any other plugin that needs an update most likely it after easter they will ALL be updated just to match the current Reco build and Minecraft will porbably be at 1.6 at least if you go by the rumours 1.6 will be out after easter.

    Happy Easter All!

    its not a recommended build. but i do agree with u, it is very buggy. i dont get much spam, but it is pretty laggy, especially a lot of block lagg. on 1.4_01 it ran pretty smoothly so its not my machine. also magic carpet dosnt work, :/ its one of my favorite plugins.
    for now id sugest to stick with 1.4_01. if u need a copy of the files i can send u mine.
    ......wait is uploading the bin file against the rules??
