    Staff Update - July 1, 2013:
    This thread is not from 2013. This thread is about the 2011, BETA version of Minecraft 1.6. There is no ETA for the 2013 Minecraft 1.6 update, as always. Please do not ask staff about when an update will happen, as they have no estimate for you. Again, this thread is not relevant to today's update.

    Update 2 - June 23, 2011 at 9:12PM EST:
    New Recommended Build #928.

    This Recommended Build addresses a few API issues and provides Plugin Developers with more events to work with, allowing more awesome plugins to be made. Unfortunately, this new RB WILL break some plugins (mostly plugins that deal with controlling a player's movement - details can be found near the end of this announcement). As always, please be sure to backup your server before updating just in case!

    See this post for more information.

    Update - May 30th, 2011 at 5:55PM EST:
    Since the release of Minecraft 1.6, we've seen quite a few rapid-fire bugfix updates from Mojang addressing issues the community has noticed and reported back on. While we're glad Mojang are on top of things and getting updates out there quickly to improve the community's experience, this does result in extra work on our part since we have to re-do some of the work we've completed for the previous update. As a result, I made the decision to hold off on getting a build out for Minecraft 1.6 until we were able to evaluate the update and decide if that is what we feel we should do or not.

    Over the weekend, that is what we have been busy doing. Unfortunately, I was out of town and unable to handle the situation as much as I would have liked, leading to a lack of communication on our part with you guys, our community. Nevertheless, my team was happily and diligently working on the update and in regular contact with me. Still, I would like to apologise for our lack of communication, I simply was not in a position to do so.

    That being said, we have noticed a few issues with the update that we've been able to address, so we are leaning towards bringing out a build for Minecraft 1.6.5. Though this build may not address all the issues we've found, it is still usable and produces a playable server with a decent experience. However, I am not yet sure if this build will qualify for recommendation.

    Please bear this in mind when using the build: it is not fully supported (though we welcome detailed, useful bug reports) and not recommended (we can't guarantee stability) to use. There are some Minecraft vanilla issues that Mojang need to address that are beyond the scope of our project to fix and we are still touching things up (like Nether/multiworld support).

    If you want to use the build we'll be pushing soon, please backup your server and make sure you understand the risks before doing so. Once again, we cannot guarantee that it won't eat your cake or spawn tiny creeper babies that take over your world.


    As I'm sure we're all aware, Mojang released Minecraft 1.6 today (Thursday, May 26, 2011) around 5AM EST and we've been hard at work getting a build out that is compatible with Minecraft 1.6 out. Since the release, Minecraft has seen quite a few small bugfix updates addressing some unnoticed bugs and we've pretty easily kept up with them. Unfortunately, there appear to be some issues with the update that is making the game unplayable for SMP players, so we've decided to wait for a bugfix update before we recommend any builds.

    Will there be a CraftBukkit for Minecraft 1.6?
    Given the reports of showstopping bugs present in 1.6, there's a high chance a new bugfix update for Minecraft will be out tomorrow or even several times this week. As a result, it is unlikely we will be releasing a Recommended Build for 1.6 until we have something stable to work with.

    That being said, we recommend everyone stay on 1.5 for a while until the showstopping issues are fixed and we can get a new, stable, compatible build out.

    You can already get CraftBukkit for Minecraft 1.6.4, but it is unsupported and not recommended.

    I'll be scouring the internet for further reports on how Minecraft 1.6 is performing, but preliminary research and our own testing has revealed it as unplayable due to chunks sporadically loading or not loading.

    You obviously have missed the moderator title. My job is to hand out warnings. I am doing so. Please stop telling me I'm doing it wrongly.

    I am sure you have certainly set 'allow-nether=true' in the server properties? Certainly you have done that, or?
  6. Offline


    Yep I did :)

    No I didn't miss it, I am just saying something, is that allowed?
    But nevermind, it was ment as a good thing, oh well.

    Keep up the good work I guess.

    I definately do like to think the Craftbukkit team for the hard word they put in for us.

    I got my directory backed up and running 817 now. Hopefully all stays stable.

    Most of my plugins seem to be working on 817 with the exception of a few.

    does dynmap plugin work for 817?
  14. Offline


    That would be a good question to ask in the plugin's thread.

    Very true, though, I kinda like the whole purple-grass concept :D
    (For those that didn't catch it, I was being sarcastic.)

    1.6.6 is working great so far, all the plugins are working.

    Yeah my server has no crashes yet but waiting to see when it does. Normally it could happen fairly often or once an hour or so.

    Looks like the weapon/tool bug is still in. Using them on a door when they are damaged will make them disappear.

    Iv been using the old builds for 1.6 since day one. Honestly they weren't bad. Pretty stable actually.

    I went back to 813 on my test server as that was the last build where the nether worked properly, since then they have all had issues with the normal world sky and clouds being visible in in the nether and in 816 and 817 the portals dont teleport you to the portal in the other world but rather the worlds default spawn and also have normal world mobs in the nether instead of ghasts and zombie pigmen.

    Stick to craftbukkit 812 it seems the most stable by a long shot and wait for the stable build... I updated to the latest build and it seemed to crash over and over rolling back even with my autosaver!

    Also a thanks to the team for keeping bukkit updated.

    The 1.6.6 is suppose to only show at the main menu I think. Haven't really noticed it there.
