    When rumours were abound of the coming of Minecraft 1.5, we were quite frantic since we were just beginning work on a new, better update handling process and were afraid the update would hit before we were ready to handle it. Luckily, to our delight, Mojang experienced a feature creep and couldn't meet the original estimated time of release, resulting in the update being delayed until the week after. While some of you were disappointed with the delay, we were happy and thankful as it gave us the weekend to push to complete the transition to our new update process.

    Unfortunately, when the Minecraft update was finally released, we were still finalising the move over to our new update process and this caused some delay. Quite a few of you were unhappy about this and we understand your frustration but we, honestly, feel the delay was for the better. With this new update process, barring local issues we have with our development environments, there should be less confusion and hard to trace bugs with future Minecraft updates. While we could have released a Recommended Build shortly after we had the update done (since we had Bukkit compatible and working with Minecraft 1.5_02 already), I made the decision for us to work out some of the issues that we were sure people would experience due to changes in Minecraft: like the addition of strict limits on certain things like chat or sign text, etc.

    Anyway, let's cut to the chase:
    We're happy to finally make available a Recommended Build for Minecraft 1.5_02 that you can grab and put on your servers right now, using the link below.

    Download CraftBukkit for Minecraft 1.5_02

    If you're just getting started, please read and follow this guide:
    BukkitWiki - Setting up a server

    Common Problems/Questions:
    I downloaded build 733 but got some other build!
    You're probably reading the version string incorrectly.

    Here's an example version string:
    git-Bukkit-0.0.0-700-gf3ae4c3-b733jnks (MC: 1.5_02)

    This version string is for build 733, as you can tell by the "b733jnks" at the end.

    Whenever I use a plugin that changes blocks, I can't see the changes until I reconnect!
    We had an issue with blocks not updating properly but this has since been fixed from build #707. This bug affected plugins that changed blocks in game, like WorldEdit. Update to the Recommended Build b733 to fix this.

    Help! My console keeps getting spammed with this error whenever someone gets kicked or disconnects and it lags the server!
    This is a bug we've fixed from build #701 onwards.

    Update to the Recommended Build b733 to fix this.

    I can't build or destroy anything! Help!?
    The common cause of this issue is a client mod called Single Player Commands, please try uninstalling all your client mods and seeing if this fixes the issue. If this is the case, then it isn't a Bukkit issue and you should contact the author of the mods you use.

    Every time I connect to the server and load a sign, the client crashes. What's wrong?
    Minecraft 1.5 has added limits for sign text. Plugin developers commonly used longer sign text to store extra data or add colours to signs. This is no longer possible, so we now cut off any line in a sign longer than 15 characters (as of build #712).

    Update to the Recommended Build b733 to fix this.

    I get kicked when flying and am told that flying hasn't been enabled on this server. How do I enable flying?
    Minecraft 1.5 added anti-flying checks. You can enable flying by setting allow-flight=true in server.properties.

    Whenever I try to send a long message in chat, it gets cut off at roughly two lines.
    A limit on chat has been added with Minecraft 1.5.

    Update to the Recommended Build b733 to fix this.

    Help! When I use the CLI arguments to set ports (or any setting), the server always starts up on 25565 or ignores the setting![/COLOR][/U]
    There was a bug that prevented the server from reading settings passed through CLI arguments. This has since been fixed from build #706 onwards.

    Update to the Recommended Build b733 to fix this.

    When lightning strikes a painting, the server crashes!
    There was a bug that caused the server to throw an error or freeze when a painting was struck by lightning, this has since been fixed from build 734 onwards. While this isn't a Recommended Build, it contains only this change and shouldn't break anything, so feel free to upgrade to this build to fix this issue.

    People are using a duping exploit involving workbenches!
    We've fixed this duping issue from build b735 onwards.

    While this isn't a Recommended Build, it contains only this change and shouldn't break anything, so feel free to upgrade to this build to fix this issue.

    Whenever I do something in game, like place a block, I get disconnected with an End of Stream error!
    This can be caused by an outdated or broken texture pack. Please try testing with a completely unmodified Minecraft client and see if it works then. If it does, you'll need to find a new texture pack or mod, get the author to fix it or run Minecraft without them.

    I can't ban anyone!
    This issue is usually caused by an outdated plugin, like Essentials. You should be keeping your plugins up to date - especially when an update hits - as they could contain fixes that make all the difference in the operation of your server.

    As Essentials isn't properly communicating updates with the community at the moment (and their plugin appears to be the leading cause of this issue), many of you are still running a version that prevents banning from working. Please update to 2.2.x (or whatever the latest is) to fix this issue.

    If this hasn't fixed this issue, make sure you've updated all your other plugins too.

    I can't spawn any mobs!

    As Essentials isn't properly communicating updates with the community at the moment (and their plugin appears to be the leading cause of this issue), many of you are still running a version that prevents mobs from naturally spawning. Please update to 2.2.x (or whatever the latest is) to fix this issue.

    If this hasn't fixed this issue, make sure you've updated all your other plugins too.

    The easiest fix for most problems is to update to the Recommended Build b733.

    Thanks for your patience, support and the many kind words you've all sent our way!

    Are these RBs generally backwards compatible with similar series builds? (i.e. 766 going back to 740 and 733)

    So far, I believe there have been no changes that cause breakages between the recommended builds for 1.5. If there were, I'm pretty sure you would have heard of them.

    Oh wonderful now that i updated most of my plugins and bukkit jar to 766 NO MOBS CAN SPAWN YAY HOW FUN.
    And there's no way in hell all of the older 740 plugins are going to get updated soon enough, and no way in hell im removing my older plugins that my server REQUIRES. Great job you screwed half of my server

    The 740 plugins do not need to be updated to work correctly on a 766 server. I expect your problem is caused by one of the plugins you are using.

    "Jenkins is going to shut down. No further builds will be performed."
    Should we be worried?
     
  7. what you saw there was just a simple server restart from an update of the system.( or sorts)
    as you see its up again ;)

    Ok, that might have been a little bit extreme, but still.

    Sorry about that. That was an inadvertant configuration change by @Grum who was trying to fix my previous mistake in forgetting to fix the Artifactory (http://repo.bukkit.org) deployment. This is now resolved.

    On a related note, Jenkins and all associated updatable Jenkins plugins have now been updated.

    Oh jolly, 1.6 just got confirmed for next week!
    The frenzy will start all over... a difficult time for small-time servers having difficulty maintaining a continued userbase...

    I'm curious to see how the new update handling process will work out.

    Oh dear god, stop updating the damn server jar x-x, its a pain enough finding all the plugin updates, and i have to wait a week before most of my plugins are updated.

    Makes me laugh when people come on here bemoaning "yet another damn server update"... Would you prefer to use the vanilla server? I thought not. Bukkit is kept up-to-date astonishingly quick - as long as you use the recommended builds, you won't have a problem. Any problems you may experience WILL be as a result of one of your plugins being outdated - that is not the fault of the Bukkit team! Yes, it can be a pain to keep track of plugin updates, but I manage it, and I have over 20 plugins on my server. If a plugin doesn't work out, bin it and look for another one. Most bases have been covered - most of the time you can easily find at least three or four plugins that do what you want. 90% of them are kept up-to-date, so if you're using a crap plugin, change it! And if the functionality you require isn't there, REQUEST it. The Bukkit community is amazingly helpful, its a shame that some people are too damn lazy or stupid to do a little bit of work for themselves for the sake of their own server.

    I don't know who's work is harder, the plugin developer's, or the server admin's. Although I'm probably sure most plugin developers do both. I did my first plugin because mcMMO took out the gravel to clay functionality and I couldn't find anything to replace it, so I wrote one. Same for my second, I coudn't find anything that did exactly what I wanted it to do. I got close, but nothing really fit. I'm sure most plugin authors will agree with me there. Then, with each bukkit update we have to test our plugins against it to see if there are any bugs, or API breakages that we have to fix, then update all our plugins and threads accordingly. Probably easy enough with someone with only 2 plugins, but those that have complex/a lot of plugins, have a harder time as they have to test each plugin. 798 came out, no big deal, test, update thread; I wasn't quite ready for another release when 803 came out (but I can see why they did it so soon), as I was in the middle of developing some things and didn't want to have to wade through two sets of bugs (my own, and those caused by the update). As of right now I'm holding off working too much on my plugins (Mostly just bug fixes and minor code enhancements) until the new minecraft 1.6 compatible build of bukkit is available, just to make sure things go smoothly. Well, enough for my rambling post, all that to say, "Another recommended build, so soon???" IS justifiable, but still we are more than happy to update (even if we are grumbling on how we just tested/upgraded all our plugins to the last build) if it means a better experience for our users.
