    Update (Oct 27 @ 10:24 PM EST): We've just pushed out our first CraftBukkit for Minecraft 1.4.2 development build, see this post for more information.

    --------------------------

    With the Minecraft 1.4 release date fast approaching, a lot of people are wondering when we will be releasing a CraftBukkit Recommended Build for Minecraft 1.4. We hope this short announcement will answer those questions.

    Due to the rapid release of preview builds for the impending 1.4 update, we are unable to guarantee that we'll have a compatible CraftBukkit Recommended Build out in time for the release of Minecraft 1.4.2. Although we started working on the update immediately after the Minecraft 1.4 preview was made available to the public, each new preview build leads to delays in our update process as we, essentially, need to start over with each one.

    In the past releasing a Recommended Build has caused apparent confusion within the community, as a result for this release, and moving forward, we will follow the "Dev -> Beta -> Recommended Build" release methodology. We are going to release a Beta build as soon as we can get a stable build devoid of any significant bugs.

    As we have done a significant amount of important work on CraftBukkit 1.3.2 builds, we have promoted a new Recommended Build recently. This was done so that people have a reliable, stable build to use until we can get a 1.4 compatible build out and so that everyone who relies on Recommended Builds are able to take advantage of all the fixes, improvements and so on we've done since the last 1.3.2 RB.

    Thank you for your patience, understanding and continued support; we greatly appreciate it!

    Haha what? I'm not even flaming, I'm telling him why things are the way they are. And in fact that's the literal term for what he's doing; leeching from work done at Bukkit, and then complaining about it without actually helping or doing anything to benefit the work.

    Seems like a fun experience. I heard that in this "outside" lived a hot blinding creature called the sun.

    I'm... pretty calm right now. I don't understand why you think I'm calling people names, I never even said he was a "leech" I said what he's doing is leeching off the work of the Bukkit team and the community, and he's not being supportive of it.

    That's good that you love your server and are waiting patiently, as such I don't see why you have an issue trying to straighten someone out here. In any case if you're going to reply to my posts please either tag or quote me so that I get an alert.

    Nobody has a problem with you waiting for an update, what we do have a problem with is people "waiting" for an update and spamming us with PMs about when the update will come, making posts about how this work is unacceptable, tagging us on IRC mad about something, which all happens to us on a daily basis.

    I really hope that the project of getting a craftbukkit version out for 1.4.2 will be successful, but I do ask if you could do it as quickly as you can, because the vanilla servers are absolutely no fun, so without Bukkit, there is not much fun in playing multiplayer minecraft. Just one more question, will the 1.3.2 plugins be able to work with the 1.4.2 craftbukkit version, or will they not be compatible?

    I believe this "sun" is a massive mob something far larger than even a ghast and that a spawner or group of spawners is somewhere nearby. It seems to be a special mob that is a level 15 light source. I've checked the wiki and the only references to it I find are incomplete. The wiki misses the fact that you take damage when in its effect outdoors for too long, that water can be used to mitigate the damage (always keep a spare bucket or bottle with you) and that looking directly at it causes the blindness debuff which i didn't think was implemented in vanilla.

    This is unbelievable. I mean, I know Minecraft appeals to players of all ages, but...really that's unbelievable. I wouldn't put up with that kind of BS :D .

    Bukkit should take a leaf out of XDA-DEV (if you're familiar with custom Android ROMS) and put some of their draconian rules in place to put an end to this sort of thing. People may complain, but they'll still wait for Bukkit...and do it without the shenanigans.

    It amazes me how many different ways the Bukkit team can say "We'll get the update out as soon as possible," yet people still don't get that it takes TIME. I've only coded minor chat-related plugins, and although they aren't difficult, it took a bit of time. Now imagine building the compatibility interface on top of a version of a game that came out YESTERDAY.

    I'm sorry for ranting, but seriously, there is no magical button that they push that automatically updates Bukkit. If there was, this thread would say "we haven't pushed the button yet, but maybe if you bug us enough, we will." The Bukkit team KNOWS that we all want the latest release. I'm 99.9% sure they are working on it at this very moment. The only reason I'm not 100% sure is because I'm not there watching them code it :p

    I'll happily wait for an update to this wonderful addition to Minecraft, not only as a plugin developer, but also as a player. Without Bukkit, there would be no Hunger Games, no grief protection, no Factions, no anything! If it takes a longer time, fine! 1.4 is a huge update, so it's natural to assume that the 1.4 CB would be a larger update.

    Be patient. Perhaps set up a small vanilla 1.4 server (if you have the resources) so your users can still join and explore the new features.

    Want craftbukkit 1.4? Throw your computer against a wall and put it back together again. By the time you're finished, 1.4 will be ready.

    Long story short, some people hacked a 1.3.2 craftbukkit to accept 1.4.2 clients and either sold it or gave it to people they know, then if anyone places any of the new stuff from 1.4.2 in the server, it crashes.

    My word, how many times do people have to ask, its been mentioned over SEVERAL times in this thread, there is NO ETA, NO VERSION, or anything towards when/if there is a bukkit version released.

    Simple Answer I will be using now: Wait...

    You may be exited, but the team is working hard, and we sit here release after release telling people there's no ETA. Would you rather me ignore him?

    I have to admit I was put off by the staff member referring to a customer/user as a leech or is leeching -- the leech theory sounds really cool I am sure at parties and in the cubicles but the logic is flawed. Otherwise the food you eat is leeching off stores the cell phone your using is leeching off phone companies etc the logic is easy enough to follow. The fact is your offering a product because a) you enjoy doing what your doing for others and would probably not refer to someone as a leech and probably have sympathy for a customers frustration whether warranted or not or b) you are getting a benefit from your "staff" postion in which case that benefit is derived directly from the customer whether you agree with said customers opinion or not. Maybe the guy did not word his frustration very well but there are thousands of people feeling the same way. The updates/expectations are not communicated very well -- what should have been communicated was -- if you want to experience that same great experience you are now having with minecraft then do not upgrade to minecraft 1.4 until bukkit is updated on "xx-xx-xx" date. Ohterwise if you update to 1.4 you will have a new experience. We understand you guys are not superhuman or have the funding/schooling of the same caliber as Blizzard addon (mod) personal so more patience is required -- With all that said I and the community do appreciate the job you guys do and I thank you

    haha GRPGamer this is h31ix and his other staff members forum, and he did ask people to be patient and not to PM them. so he has every right to talk to him as he sees fit.

    Way to go Mojang. What's the point of a prerelease if you change it three days, then two days before it goes public?
