    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.

    I wasnt saying he was, i was aiming the rest towards the people who would or have posted asking for a build from the staff, the xbox thing was meant to be a joke about how bad Notch is with his coding at times.

    I would like to see you code minecraft without making a patch.

    To all those that are impatient...latest build 30 mins ago... Bukkit Team is working hard to get us a recommended build. Lets not spam this forum with "when is the next build gonna be out." Patience is Virtue! If you feel you can't wait. there is build 946 you could use, Just backup server in-case of problems.

    Testing this on my local test server. So far, everything is operating correctly.

    Running Minecraft 1.7_01 with craftbukkit 946 along with 30 or so plugins.

    Will continue testing.

    Agreed, but servercraft.co I think only uses recommended builds, so I have to wait patiently too 0_0

    #946 runs without any problems right now. Except for the missing items(Pistons, shears, ...) everything is fine.

    Alot of misconstrued quoting going on. I think he was hating on the haters that hate.
  12. Offline


    Exactly, that was the aim anyway, I dont like seeing people always asking for updates right away for things like bukkit when things need to be fixed, like i said in a previous post, the staff dont have to do it but they do it anyway, i know for one i am very grateful and always wait patiently for an update, if theres bugs that Notch is working on fixing, i wait for them too, all misunderstandings in the posts.

    woah woah woah, i aint hating on the guy, i was merely saying that if theres a bug and he says he is fixing it that i wait for him until hes released the fix, i follow his twitter so i always see if he says anything about a bug that hes fixing, i actually enjoy playing MineCraft, its one of the few games ive gone back to repeatedly, and i get bored with games easily.

    According to what I have read so far, there is a major bug in the current Minecraft version. (1.7_01) This bug seems when a piston is used to move the object that is powering it.

    I have not tested this bug myself, but have noticed several reports of it on the Minecraft forums.

    Is this bug (going to be) fixed in CraftBukkit or will we have to wait for a Minecraft patch?

    Edit: As I posted this, Notch posted a tweet: "There will be another update tomorrow, fixing a few weird corner cases with pistons. And yeah, it will be 1.7.2, not 1.7_02. I forgot! =)"

    So.. New update and not a word from the Bukkit developers.. Why? All I want to know is if they are working on a new version, if the old one is still compatible, and a rough estimate of when it can be expected to be open to the public.

    Haters gonna hate.
  21. Offline


    Yes they are working on it. It will be ready when it's ready.

    Come on people, the bukkit team does in fact have a real life [yeah, really] and it's also not that easy to keep this forum and the websites "clean" and so on...so give them some time.
    And if you really want to know, #946 works fine, with shears and with pistons...it's an experimental build though. I, personally, had no problems with it.
    So, calm down and wait a little more ;)

    [Of course it would be nice to hear some words, but we know, that they are working on the new builds, so why telling us what we already know ?]

    Hooray for bukkit devs :) Your hard work is much appreciated. Hopefully 1.7.02 wont cause too much trouble tomorrow :)

    Bukkit devs, DO NOT MAKE A 1.7.1 BUKKIT

    If you move a dirtblock with a pressure plate up using a piston, the game crashes. I have managed to recreate this (with admin permission) in my server, and a friends server.
    Notch SHOULD fix this tomorrow, but dont work on a bukkit till it is

    Agreed, I stepped on one and went flying, but then crashed... So there will be another update soon....

    There will not be a recommended build of CraftBukkit today (6/30/11) since Notch is doing another bug fix update tomorrow (1.7.2).

    So, In the meantime: Be patient or put your minecraft server up with a temporary map and play on vanilla!
