    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!

    The point wasn't that he was "leeching", it was that he was being rude about it, that was the entire purpose of my reply; just have a little respect is all.

    Normally, yes, you'd be right. Between the time I made that reply and now, I've recieved about 10 pms asking about ETAs, and all of them have gotten that answer.

    However,

    Does that help explain why we get exasperated at certain people after stuff like this? :/

    it is basically the truth.
    we are kind of "leeching" off of bukkit's work.
    where would we be without bukkit?

    Oh please, show me where you've paid a single dollar for this service.
    In fact, show me where you've donated a single dollar to this service.

    Cell phones, food, and other COMPANIES charge fees for their services.
    When you use bukkit, you are using a community-sponsored, community-edited project that has a fairly small support team. They're building this project so you can continue to use it for free and enhance your server.

    There are threads on this forum that clearly explain what will be expected with the update.
    There is also this thread that explains:

    "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."

    I alert my users ahead of time that they should not update their clients until we post an official announcement, and I wait patiently for the next recommended build.
    Doing anything other than this (using an untested, non-recommended build) is providing an non-optimum, reduced quality experience for your users.

    If you're on this thread asking for an ETA, I'm sorry to break this to you, but you are actually kind of "stupid".
    There's plenty of information indicating that they have no way of giving you a clear answer as to "when" the new build for bukkit will be available.

    Not to mention, the poor staff on here has to answer the same stupid questions over and over again.
    If you read any page on this thread, you would have some level of awareness of the situation.
    Me personally, I'd have locked this thread and any other similar threads.

    There has been no officially released version of bukkit for 1.4.2.
    Anything they are using is a cracked version/custom updated version, and isn't condoned by Bukkit.

    I honestly wouldn't hope for a Mod-API. It's been promised for a very long time now and the version continues to be pushed further back. I highly highly doubt it will ever appear. Every time they make a new release they change enough code for bukkit to break completely. The same would happen for a mod api. Mojang is not coding with backward compatibility in mind, and therefor making a Mod-API impractical, costly, and time consuming.

    I imagine you would consider it to be a "cracked/hacked" version of bukkit.
    Someone with enough knowledge of Java + MineCraft could potentially make enough small changes to make bukkit functional for their own server for 1.4.2, but there's absolutely no guarantee of stability.

    OK FFS lets stop the flame wars and just Stop, bukkit isn't going to give you ANYTHING if you keep sucking up and trying to Defend them, and Yelling at everyone and complaining isn't going to make it faster. This topic isn't so you can argue with 10 yearolds or complain about how your server is so important. Just calm down. Every update its the same.... last time this thread got 86 pages of spam.... just please no more criticism. If someone says "is it out yet?" kindly tell them no..... easy as that. It does take a while to code these things. and in there defense there alot of new AI's to deal with, and let alone the Beacon block.. but just chill out because with a game update, means pluggin updates..... Dont you want plugins to allow you to emite lasers from dispensers??/ because with the new bukkit that will be easy.....

    FIRST OFF:
    bukkit and sister site minecraft forums have, in my humble opinion, by far the worst forums staff. I'm not refering to the people who actually produce code, but the "leech" staff that has power trips all damn day. Seriously, i see minecraft forums mods with points against them. And bukkit mods have no regulation or regulating methods that i can see, and they go around moderating like they are children under the age of 18 (which they probably are)
    if you are one of these asshat moderators, GFYS. if you are one of the minority of moderation staff that is not power hungry and actually gives a crap about us "leeches", then thank you.

    SECOND OFF:
    I noticed people talking crap about not paying for bukkit. as a matter of fact i have donated to bukkit more times that i can count!!! and i donated money when they were putting out good code and getting updates out in a timely manner.

    Very well said and very true indeed, I agree with you completely.

    Donating money to bukkit assists the project in continuing, it doesn't grant a release schedule.

    I think hes actually just stating to all the people who above on previous pages were saying you have done nothing to help the community, you haven't put anything into it. I don't think he's saying that because he donated to help the community not to demands a updates.

    I think he means it's my and the staff's forum (which it's not) and that I can talk to people however I like (which I probably shouldn't do). I'm just trying to make the PMs stop people D: Help me! I'm drowning!

    I am not sure how many times I need to state this for people to understand:
    There are NO CraftBukkit builds for 1.4.2 out. Not official, unofficial, or otherwise.

    This thread is being pruned of people talking about any "unofficial build", because its only misleading the community. The only thing you may find is a 1.3.2 server accepting 1.4.2 clients, which can cause the client to crash and possibly the server as well.

    Just want to thank you guys for your years of support while minecraft was unable to fulfill our requirements as server ops. With the recent developments to minecraft with the release of the Mod API for Server Side Plugin Support being developed BY OUR VERY OWN BUKKIT TEAM! I realize that it must be hard to continue to toss out craftbukkit builds as fast as you'd like but where are the beta builds that I can toy with to get at semi stable test 1.4 server up so that I can assure that when I migrate to 1.4 I won't have any issues with maps positions permissions test functionality of plugins to know which ones "may be out of date" but still function with the new 1.4 and which ones are just bunk anyways.

    Not saying your doing a bad job but don't we at least get to toy with your 1.4 beta builds that you have already built? working or not isn't that how these kinda projects go? even Cyanogenmod for Android devices releases unstable builds for the public to try out and give feed back on

    Did you mean by people, me? Because I asked that question about 6 hours ago and it didn't get accepted by moderators. Than I noticed some one else asked the same question and I thought they did get accepted.. Only the acception thing is now gone and I didn't know that yet.
    I know it's not out.. I just wonderd how there were those kinds of servers, that wich i thought were 1.4 servers.

    I think it's really redicilious that my question got removed... Since I wasn't doing anything wrong nor did I ask a "stupid" question... I think it belongs there so people autually know that it's fake..

    So just calm down....

    Literally, the first build you see is the first one that will actually run. You can't physically have it updated until it's actually been modified, class-by-class, to fit the new minecraft server jar. As soon as the first build is updated, that's your unstable builds, and it just keeps improving until the RB.

    Why doesn't everyone go outside and enjoy the fresh air and let bukkit do there thing the more you bother them the more time its going to take cause you keep distracting them. Leave them alone.

    You need to read this thread. It has been addressed multiple times. If you do not want to take the time to learn, why should we take the time to answer you?

    Oh I did, I did the lawn, the gardening, took the kids to the park for a few hours, cleaned the house, did some coding... but now it's starting to cool down and the kids get their afternoon snack and bottles - It's time to tune into the bukkit update thread for my daily dose of internet angst and laughs.
