    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!

    Incredible. Just incredible. I've seen some whining on the Internet, but I think this one takes the damn cake. Thank you, SpEcZzGaming for coming on here and taking a big dump on the comments section for all to see. I'm sure everyone here really appreciates it.

    Agreed 100%. Mojang should make an offer to buy Bukkit then rename CraftBukkit which then becomes vanilla Minecraft. :D

    Never forget... BUKKIT ROXXX more so than vanilla Minecraft ever will!

    Indeed, like maybe rename the previous mc jar to minecraft-1.3.2.jar or whatever and using that upon 1.3.2 server load, or even if a restart of mc is needed to switch to join older server, so be it. Better than downgrading then when done upgrading as a user.

    Could someone please link the mojang.com post for the last 1.3.2 build that worked? They normally have a jar that allows people to revert if updated accidentally and I'd like to share it.

    I would think the dev will be out in about maybe 2 days, and the reccomended maybe a week or 2, but I have no clue, it could only be 10 minutes, or 1 month, depends on the errors they find, so never hold me to it!

    Give them at least a week. Last time it took them a week to have an unstable build ready.

    This isn't exactly what you asked for but this is a way to downgrade your minecraft.jar to the version you want. Simply go here: Minecraft Version Changer and follow the instructions for downloading. If you have problems running the MVC.jar, look on page 29 near the bottom for quoted instructions.

    Cheers.

    Also, I'm sorry if this linking isn't allowed. I just wanted to help. :)

    Minecraft would be nothing without Bukkit... I don't understand why they even do prereleases if they're just going to do a bunch more directly after, right before the release date. [zombie] Kind of defeats the purpose: "to prepare modders and server admins[...]"

    Just change the "1_3_2" to some other version if you would like anything other than 1.3.2. I am very against 3rd party "version changing" applications because they could be very prone to viruses and potentially break the terms of service.

    Word has it that there has been a serious accident involving creepers, the bukkit staff and a large quantity of carrots .... There may never be an update again ....

    No it wasn't, go look at the thread; they began work on July 26th and the RB was released on August 7th. That's nearly two weeks.

    [edit] Sorry, an unstable dev build was released on the 29th and it had game-breaking bugs. The first real RB was released on August 7th.

    There was a dev build out in under 2 days. Recommended builds are an entirely different story.

    Remember, it is entirely up to you what you choose to use. Just make sure you take good backups regulardless of whether you choose to use RB's, Beta's, or Dev builds.

    I usually use dev builds, and backup my server into a zip on my harddrive

    Not to drag this argument out but if you look at the 1.3 announce thread you can see it was stated that development began on the 26th and the development release came out on the 29th.

    That said, most of the major plugin developers refused to release updated plugins because the development release was so unstable. In my case my server is pretty much unusable without Multiverse and I tried to limp by using the development version of it but it was basically game-breaking.

    Most plugins work with new releases, well, that is in my case.

    yeah just get the dev build out, and we will get you bukkiteers all the juicy bugs

    I agree. At least half the plugins I use on my server are custom-made and written so that they are flexible enough to survive most updates. Plugins like WorldEdit and Multiverse seem to really need to wait until a stable release is available.

    I also hate to drag this out, but I will:
    The first 1.3.1 Dev Build: August 2, 10 AM, 2012
    Mojang releases 1.3.1: August 1, 2012

    Sources: http://dl.bukkit.org and http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Version_history

    My server also runs Multiverse, and I was able to update to the first dev build. Backups, they are important.
