    Staff Update - July 1, 2013:
    This thread is not from 2013. This thread is about the 2011, BETA version of Minecraft 1.6. There is no ETA for the 2013 Minecraft 1.6 update, as always. Please do not ask staff about when an update will happen, as they have no estimate for you. Again, this thread is not relevant to today's update.

    Update 2 - June 23, 2011 at 9:12PM EST:
    New Recommended Build #928.

    This Recommended Build addresses a few API issues and provides Plugin Developers with more events to work with, allowing more awesome plugins to be made. Unfortunately, this new RB WILL break some plugins (mostly plugins that deal with controlling a player's movement - details can be found near the end of this announcement). As always, please be sure to backup your server before updating just in case!

    See this post for more information.

    Update - May 30th, 2011 at 5:55PM EST:
    Since the release of Minecraft 1.6, we've seen quite a few rapid-fire bugfix updates from Mojang addressing issues the community has noticed and reported back on. While we're glad Mojang are on top of things and getting updates out there quickly to improve the community's experience, this does result in extra work on our part since we have to re-do some of the work we've completed for the previous update. As a result, I made the decision to hold off on getting a build out for Minecraft 1.6 until we were able to evaluate the update and decide if that is what we feel we should do or not.

    Over the weekend, that is what we have been busy doing. Unfortunately, I was out of town and unable to handle the situation as much as I would have liked, leading to a lack of communication on our part with you guys, our community. Nevertheless, my team was happily and diligently working on the update and in regular contact with me. Still, I would like to apologise for our lack of communication, I simply was not in a position to do so.

    That being said, we have noticed a few issues with the update that we've been able to address, so we are leaning towards bringing out a build for Minecraft 1.6.5. Though this build may not address all the issues we've found, it is still usable and produces a playable server with a decent experience. However, I am not yet sure if this build will qualify for recommendation.

    Please bear this in mind when using the build: it is not fully supported (though we welcome detailed, useful bug reports) and not recommended (we can't guarantee stability) to use. There are some Minecraft vanilla issues that Mojang need to address that are beyond the scope of our project to fix and we are still touching things up (like Nether/multiworld support).

    If you want to use the build we'll be pushing soon, please backup your server and make sure you understand the risks before doing so. Once again, we cannot guarantee that it won't eat your cake or spawn tiny creeper babies that take over your world.


    As I'm sure we're all aware, Mojang released Minecraft 1.6 today (Thursday, May 26, 2011) around 5AM EST and we've been hard at work getting a build out that is compatible with Minecraft 1.6 out. Since the release, Minecraft has seen quite a few small bugfix updates addressing some unnoticed bugs and we've pretty easily kept up with them. Unfortunately, there appear to be some issues with the update that is making the game unplayable for SMP players, so we've decided to wait for a bugfix update before we recommend any builds.

    Will there be a CraftBukkit for Minecraft 1.6?
    Given the reports of showstopping bugs present in 1.6, 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 Recommended Build for 1.6 until we have something stable to work with.

    That being said, we recommend everyone stay on 1.5 for a while until the showstopping issues are fixed and we can get a new, stable, compatible build out.

    You can already get CraftBukkit for Minecraft 1.6.4, but it is unsupported and not recommended.

    I'll be scouring the internet for further reports on how Minecraft 1.6 is performing, but preliminary research and our own testing has revealed it as unplayable due to chunks sporadically loading or not loading.

    It seems that the load times of chunks is attrocious. I'm not sure if that's a bukkit issue or a mc issue. Also there is a lag between block breaks and placements. As well as what seems like lag (placing a block and it removes itself). If these are bukkit issues I have no other qualms with 1.6 so far. Too bad I can't revert myself or my players That would be fantastic.

    Setting Allow-Nether to false instead of true in serverproperties seemed to fix my issues or at least alleviate them.

    Amen to that.

    Maps crash the server. Which I find hilarious. And warping plugins (like multiverse) are borked for some reason.

    anyways, keep us posted. I look forward to getting a stable build.
  8. First of all, thanks for all the hard work to the dev team! Your work is very much appreciated by me and the users of my server :)

    The first issue with build #812 I have is with the Announce plugin. Forcing a broadcast works, but the timer (interval) doesn't fire off any messages. Also, I had to teleport to another user and reconnect because I was stuck somewhere (no GUI, nothing).

    Well, to be expected with a beta build, just an FYI.

    Fair warning; if you are using a lot of plugins expect the unexpected ;) I have Announce and RealShop (for example) and the former kind of works but the second one boots users off the server with an internal server error.

    Until promoted, here be dragons :)

    The fact that you guys had a playable build only a bit after the vanilla release says a lot...this is not the Bukkit team's fault. Mojang definitely needs to do more testing of their product before it releases. 4 patches in the span of like 2 hours is just bad form from a multi-million dollar company.

    Regardless, awesome work Bukkit Team! Looking forward to the rec. build.

    HEY GUYS! My server is working wonderful without bukkit. Turning on bukkit (newest) we get MASSIVE rendering problems. Vanilla, there is no problem. PLEASE?

    Even though I warned the players on my server for this, some still updated...
    Good luck Bukkit team with making a recommed 1.6.4 build. Without bukkit a server would be boring.

    I'm not sure if updates are bad or good. They improve the game but you have to basicly scrap all server plugins.

    partly its mainly 'mcmmo' 'iconomychestshop' and block loading

    keep up the good work. i just want to mention that MojangAB is at an extremely low point in its history. Hear about all those bugs? i liked all of the bugs that they took out except for infinite fire spreading. Keep up the good work though! Pray that minecraft gets back up and functioning properly!

    God damnit. However, thank for everything dev-guys, ur job are just awesome.

    The reason for the incompatibility is that there's a stronger compression system in the 1.6.4 so the packet managing in 1.6.4 is not the same as in 1.5.

    There goes Notch with another buggy update... He needs to learn to test stuff before releasing.

    Thanks for the update, and yes the chunks dont like to load at all on the unsupported build. My mates server tried it and well i raged quit as it kept freezing and crashing haha.

    Can you try to implement a server side mod client that allowed you to have new block types in game without everyone needing a pesky mod loader/mod client.

    Block loading isn't that important, neither is chunk loading. Just useless code there.

    I would just like to say, i will wait for such a good program
