    Alright, so you're telling us beginners we can not use any Bukkit function WHAT SO EVER except Block.getBlock(x, y, z) and player.sendMessage(msg)? That is bullshit.

    I use this code to prevent this:
            public void onPlayerChat(final AsyncPlayerChatEvent e) {
                if (!e.isAsynchronous()) {
                } else {
                    final Future<Void> f = Bukkit.getScheduler().callSyncMethod(plugin, new Callable<Void>() {
                        public Void call() throws Exception {
                            return null;
                    try {
                        while (true) {
                            try {
                            } catch (final InterruptedException e1) {}
                    } catch (final ExecutionException e1) {
                        // The execute() method generated an exception!
    Simply define a method "private void execute(AsyncPlayerChatEvent e)" which will be called when a player chats and is guaranteed to run on Bukkit's main thread, i.e. you'll be able to use any methods you want.

    PS: If you neither want to cancel the event nor change the message in any way you could also simply schedule a task with no delay instead of using callSyncMethod.

    PP: I apologize if this code is not 100% correct ^^

    EntityChangeBlockEvent is no longer restricted to LivingEntities. Unfortunately, this is a bytecode incompatibility and requires any plugin that calls EntityChangeBlockEvent.getEntity() to recompile. If you relied on it being a living entity, take note that you should use an instanceof check as sand / gravel will now fire the event.

    Craftbukkit Dev Version 1.4.5-R0.3 (2505) adds Bukkit 3078, EntityChangeBlockEvent. When I updated server from 2504 to 2505 I got lots of EntityChangeBlockEvent errors as soon as server finished booting. I can still run with no problems with 2504. What did you mean by "requires any plugin that calls EntityChangeBlockEvent to recompile"? What do I need to do to move server to 2505? Sample printout follows:

    He meant exactly what he said. Your plugins need to be updated.

    I checked an hour ago and there are no updates from the version of plugins I am running. Tried running the jars through the update folder again with no change. Can I rebuild server with same plugins or do I have to wait until developers update them and recompile them. Thanks

    I found and read info at this site and I think it answered my question. I need to wait until the plugins are corrected and updated to handle the EntityChangeBlockEvent correctly. Everything is still working on CB 2504. http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/ho...ubleshoot-your-own-plugins-by-yourself.32457/ Thanks

    getPortalTravelAgent() now broken on all plugins relying on it for teleporting users via portal on custom worlds.

    Happened after EdGruberman's changes.
