    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.

    You can't until Notch releases the new build for 1.7. As sillyrosster pointed out - you would have to run a 'vanilla' minecraft server, until craftbukkit releases their new build

    Just to note: There are some dev builds of Bukkit that show much progress to 1.7 so they ARE working on it - but the fact of the matter is if you run a dev build right now, using pistons can hose your map and crash your server. It's still a work in progress, and many of the bugs come from Minecraft itself (as usual :/), not from Craftbukkit. Once Mojang gets all the kinks out, Bukkit can release a version that won't trash everything. Keep your users from updating for the time being. I'm sure EvilSeph will post an update for us at some point soon (Disclaimer: That is a complete assumption on my part), but right now they're busy with the code (that part I know for a fact).

    Sooo. I just crashed a vanilla minecraft server about 20 minutes from startup with about 25 people on.
    Anyone else come across this? http://pastebin.com/qCM1czj2

    Stopped the server, restarted with the same error no one able to connect.
  7. That error is amazing. Somehow Notch called a function which calls the function that called it.

    So, I tried the b950 that runs on the current 1.7_01 (?). Basic plugins work just fine, but I didn't dare touch any pistons yet. Basically updated after a thorough backup because of my users complaining.

    There will be a bit more flux than normal, I'm sure. I don't envy the dev's or plugin devs. Thanks guys!!

    what kind of crap coding is that? I don't understand how that happens. I hear he's a sloppy coder? Is this true? I know very basic java from HS (enough to make managing other people's plugins a tad bit easier) and that's a mistake that a newbie usually makes. Am I right?

    Yeah that's called recursion. Usually it can be very useful, but sometimes...

    I STRONGLY recommend that anyone who attempts what @obscurehero has done here follows suit and creates a FULL BACKUP of ALL their data, including your MySQL tables (if you use anything like that), maps, config files...

    Hell, I just made a new empty folder and copied my working 1.6 stuff INTO that. Don't even mess with the working setup, just make something you can trash because you will have to at some point, trust.

  10. I would consider this particular error a noob mistake, yes. You should never write complex functions if you don't understand every possible data-flow.

    I know all about recursion. I also know how dangerous it can be. Fortunately Java runs in a VM so the stack overflow doesn't break anything besides that single process.

    I got tired of seeing 20 "outdated server" messages every minute. So I moved my 1.6.6 server to a new Ip and put up a 1.7_1 vanilla server on the public address, so all of the boneheads that were filling my mailbox could get on.

    It ran for about 25-30 minutes then threw this error, on restart it would throw it from the beginning and not let anyone connect. So Im back to the "outdated server" messages.

    I especially love watching the same people try to log in with the same error LITERALLY 50 times.
    sigh... running a server has stolen any hope I had for this generation of young kids.

    my server is running cb build 950, and we are having a blast with pistons, I have just recently recreated the cool door thing from the teammojang piston video.
    So far, no errors.

    When it happens my server crashes and the map gets rolled back to the last save, which, can be annoying. Any solutions?

    Another World-Breaker machine which my players have managed twice... is making a Piston push a pressure plate... Its like dividing by zero.....

    +1 on that
    and +1 on the button one.
    Should actually be fixed as its kind of disturbing when wanting to make such traps... maybe make a dropping mechanism for those

    Awww, wanted to update my server. But I'm getting a 502 error now, when I visit the website with the builds. :p

    Anyway, everyone is talking that I should have a SNAPASHOT_O or something similar in my main-directory. But I don't. So where should I be placing the build, when I can download it? (I'm using McMyAdmin btw)

    Anything that pushes redstone or changes a redstone circuit layout will crash the server and corrupt your map. Don't do it.
    If you have a website, you'd think they'd be refreshing that looking for an update about when the serer was 1.7 compatible. If you don't have a website, I don't blame them for the refreshes because that's about the equivelent.

    I wish there was a way to customize the "Outdated Server" message (does it come from the server? As in, is it just a kick message that fires off really early on depending on version detection?). "Client too new: Just like last time, you should have waited."
