    A new CraftBukkit for Minecraft 1.6.1 DEVELOPMENT build is now available!

    As of this post, we've shifted development over to Minecraft 1.6.1 compatibility and now have development builds available. We strongly suggest that you only use this build if you would like to help us get a Beta build out sooner and are experienced with using unsupported development builds. If you have to ask where or how to get the development build, you should NOT be running it and posts of that nature will be deleted.

    WARNING: Minecraft 1.6.1 is an update that requires clients to update before being able to connect.

    Will plugins break with this build?
    Minecraft 1.6.x has changed how health is stored for entities, which is something plugin developers have been relying on and expecting to never change. Usually a change of this kind would force us to completely break plugins, however, we've managed to come up with a way to support both the old and new health formats without any problems. This means that all the plugins that would have broken from this change will all work fine, giving plugin developers time to update their plugins properly and allowing you to keep your server running without any issues. If you're a plugin developer, you can find more information on this change here.

    While we were busy updating CraftBukkit to Minecraft 1.6.1, we realised that the change to how health is handled would cause a lot of headaches for all our server admins and plugin developers, so we spent a lot of time trying to come up with a better way to handle this than simply breaking all plugins. We hope that all the hours we put into this solution will significantly improve your Minecraft 1.6.1 update experience.

    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 practice's, most plugins should work without needing an update whenever we put out a new release.

    What is a Developer Build?
    A Developer build is provided AS IS and COMPLETELY UNSUPPORTED. You should only be running these builds if you are completely aware of how to properly make use of them. Support requests of ANY KIND will be removed without warning. If you have to ask where or how to get the development build, you should NOT be running it and posts of that nature will be deleted.

    Thanks for your continued support, we hope that the extra time we put into avoiding the breaking of plugins makes this Minecraft update a smooth and painless one for everyone.

    As far as I can tell this is and has been a bug in vanilla minecraft for a while. Or a feature.

    I had time to play with the official build without craftbukkit (missed it alot). And now I'm running this development build in a new "level-name". Its definitely the same game. So far most of the plugins appear to work (still testing). I'm relatively new to minecraft servers; but I'm an old friend of servers of various sorts. I'll keep playing with things.

    I Found a bug, could be a plugin, but i'm not sure, so i'll post it here:
    People can't craft Horse Armor. When they put in the receipt, there's no armor coming out.

    Thanks Bukkit for this beta build. Great work. I was really excited to see this build come out so fast! Thank again.

    Great job guys!
    I have heard of some speed problems of sorts being reported on the Spigot IRC whilst waiting for this release. We're not looking for 100% perfection, but the speed errors would be a bit much. Does anyone else besides MistPhizzle experience speed increases? I want to know for sure before I put this on our server.

    Ok, I found a bug just now. Signs can't be edited when placed on fence posts.

    1) Spigot is not CraftBukkit. They are different servers and can have different problems.
    2) You didn't test without plugins. This is a problem with "hub" or "proxy" servers.

    There is no crafting Horse Armor. That was removed in the snapshots.

    I can't seem to find any horses. I've been running around in new areas (generating new chunks) for about two hours now. Not a single horse. The new areas seem to be almost devoid of any life at all.

    Thanks so for working so hard on this development/project that keeps my server going, i can't thank the development crew enough for the time you spend to make my server possible,Thank Bukkit,

    Sweet. I will wait for this become official.

    I refuse to use Beta builds, so I guess I will have to wait even longer to get my world back.

    Going to transfer my server world to my single player if possible and continue building up, and play with some horses :)

    Cannot understand how to make them mine though so I can put armor on them.

    upgraded the server from 1.5.2 (started the map 2012)
    and i got no horses so far (large biomes)
    using the spawn horse-egg is spawning them, but after the chunk isn't loaded and gets revisited by a player the horses are gone.

    Found a very big bug!
    When a user gets slowness or speed, and then gets this effect removed, the effect stays forever. It doesn't show the effect is there in the inventory, but the users keeps being very slow/fast..
    Please fix this as this basicly breaks every server using slowness/speed..

    Excellent work as always. The extra work you put into maintaining compatibility with current plugins is outstanding. It doesn't affect me but I'm sure Server Admins and Plugin authors alike thank you :)

    Me too. Build 2795. Build 2979 just dropped a second ago. Will try that.

    EDIT: 2979 claims to fix a bug that may be relevant (4397). Crossing fingers...

    I know that horses are being spawned, as one of my first tests put me in a chunk surrounded by them.

    Well, I gave up searching for horses. I guess I wait for a recommended build or use spawn eggs.
