    A new CraftBukkit Beta Build (1.4.2-R0.2) that provides Minecraft 1.4.2 compatibility and fixes serious issues in CraftBukkit 1.4.2-R0.1 is now available. The previous beta is considered broken and will be marked as such on, as a result updating to this beta is highly recommended.

    Will plugins break with this build?
    Provided the developers of the plugins you are using are keeping up with the development of Bukkit, all your plugins should work fine. Unless we specifically have to break plugins or the plugins you are using are employing inappropriate practises, most plugins should work without needing an update whenever we put out a new release.

    What is a Beta build?
    A Beta Build is in between a developer build and a Recommended Build. These builds simply work and are promoted much more frequently than a Recommended Build. While we will do some testing before promoting a beta build, we will not be running it through our extensive test process. As such, there are no guarantees that they will not contain minor bugs. If we do find out they are broken, we will mark it as such on DLB and promote a new one. A beta build may contain incomplete API and new features but they should not interfere with running the build in any way.

    This particular Beta build is primarily a fix for the first beta and, as such, should still be given the same considerations as our first beta build. Please consider running this Beta build to give us a hand with discovering issues we need to address in order to reach a Recommended Build.

    The release of Minecraft 1.3 introduced built in auto-save functionality that is completely new to Minecraft: prior to this release, server admins had to provide their own means to save things on their server at a set interval. As a result, the vast majority of servers already have an auto-saving mechanism of some sort, rendering the newly provided built in auto-save largely redundant. On top of this, it was also immediately noticeable that the built in auto-save was the cause of a significant performance hit to the server, even going so far as to lock up the server each time it ran.

    Bearing this in mind, we decided the best course of action was to make the auto-save interval configurable and default to being disabled. By doing so we immediately saw a noticeable performance increase on servers and noticed overwhelmingly positive feedback on our Beta builds. While some might argue that this could leave servers without frequent saving, this change simply reverts behaviour back to what server admins are familiar with from Minecraft 1.2.5.

    As mentioned before, we have made the auto-save interval configurable and disableable within the bukkit.yml. Simply set "ticks-per.autosave" to the number of ticks you want between each save or set it to 0 to disable it completely and use a script or plugin to manage it instead.

    Notable Changes:
    • Fixed crash caused by plugins that allow players to change art. See BUKKIT-2667 for more information.
    • Fixed generated structures not retaining their data after a server restart. See BUKKIT-2760 for more information.
    • Fixed time and player time not working. See BUKKIT-2797 for more information.
    • Fixed a bug that resulted in world data not being preserved when switching from vanilla Minecraft to Bukkit. See BUKKIT-2760 and BUKKIT-2816 for more information.
    Known Issues:
    • Monsters, villagers, etc. using portals (added in Minecraft 1.4) has been temporarily disabled.
    For more detailed information on what is contained in this update, please see the changelog here.

    I'm 16. Granted, I'm not on the Bukkit Team, but I contribute to the code and am dbo/forum staff. It's not about your age, but I will tell you that if you don't demonstrate your maturity by using proper grammar (ie. not capitalizing your I's or the beginning of a sentence) and complaining to people working way harder than you are for free, that is indeed what it's 'about'.

    If bukkit and mojang joind then craftbukkit could cost us money. Mojang could start to charge us so they could make more money. We're lucky as it is.

    whens the new 1.4.4 rec build gonna come out?
  8. Offline


    Yes we are very lucky indeed that CraftBukkit is FREE at the moment and it truely owns in every way... except when there's a waiting period like right now. If Bukkit wanted to charge for their work I would pay. I'd pay Mojang to play Minecraft and I'd pay Bukkit to use their CraftBukkit server software. I see CraftBukkit as the ultimate Minecraft experience and I think great work such as this would be value for money. If you think I'm wrong to have this opinion you must be; a) under the age of employment, b) still a student, c) without a means of earning a living for yourself, d) someone who wants to exploit others for their own benefit, e) all of the previous.

    Lets not get ahead of ourselves and speculate. You can run a Minecraft server without paying anything, even from Mojang. You should, however, pay for the client needed to connect.

    In any event, this is not a discussion about that, this is a thread about the latest Beta release of Minecraft.

    When I click the download link posted on the first post by EvilSeph, I get 1.4.2-R0.2 - b2455. The download link is correct.

    You're kidding, right?
    Nearly everybody in the bukkit team and the staff have explained that they don't have ETAs. Also, how will they even know when something will be released, when 1.4.4 hasn't even been released?

    Does anyone have any idea when R0.3 or R1.0 will be released?
  15. Offline


    it is released there is the pre-release. I think bukkit should be able to work with that

    A pre-release is not the same thing as a release.

    There is no problem in the Beta doing that. Best to check into your plugins. If you need further assistance, post on Bukkit Help.

    I'm busy as hell and yet you'd have a tough time finding me ditch all traces of the Germanic sublanguage for SMS-Speak. And if I do, either T9 is being a butt or I'm using it demonstratively.

    The original post said: Monsters, villagers, etc. using portals (added in Minecraft 1.4) has been temporarily disabled.

    Does this mean monster, villagers and portal do not work or does it mean monsters and villagers can't use portals?
    Are there any other isues/limitations to this build?
    I'd really like to update to 1.4, i feel like i've waited enough for a recommended build.
