Ok so I know there have been MANY (way too many) threads on this. First off I am not Bukkit staff. Nor am I some kind of delivery boy for this information. This is my opinion on why this particular update is taking longer than normal. First off, these threads asking when 1.7.2 Bukkit will be released need to stop. It will be out when the Bukkit team is finished. If this post doesn't explain everything, fell free to tahg me and ask me. Also things like Spout, Bungeecord etc. is unsupported, so please don't ask or talk about them. The reason why this update is taking so long to release is because of how many lines of code Mojang changed. 5000+ lines of code were rewritten just in one update. Bukkit's job is not only to provide a server, but also a way for modifications to be made to said server. That means Bukkit's developers need to change MORE lines of code than Mojang did. Another reason is because Mojang rewrote the way servers communicate with the clients. This will affect servers the most because of how much they changed. In fact, servers cannot be pinged the same way in 1.7 as in 1.6 and below. Because Bukkit doesn't use MCP, they must de-obfuscate Minecraft source code themselves. There are plus and minuses to this. A plus is that they don't have to wait for MCP to release a decompiler. A minus is that they have to do this grueling process themselves. Imagine decompiling thousands of Java classes EVERY UPDATE. This update may take a while, but Bukkit will be released for 1.7.2. Be patient with them they have a lot of pressure on them also. This isn't the first time Bukkit has taken a while to be released and it won't be the last time. Finally, servers that "support" 1.7 don't actually include the new features. They are simple (or in this case quite complicated) networking hacks that allow 1.7 clients to play on their server. They are often buggy and overall laggy servers however. To summarize everything, 1.7.2 will be released, but it will be released when it is ready. Pestering the staff is only going to slow down progress as they will have to answer your concerns that have already been addressed several times. This particular update is going to take a while because of how large of an update it is (aka "the update that changed the world"). While some servers allow clients to play in 1.7, they are just buggy hacks that can corrupt worlds and have been known to do other devious things. Just hold tight, Bukkit 1.7.2 is coming.
