    Mojang have just released an update to Minecraft, bringing us to 1.2.4.

    This update is primarily a bug fix release but does include some nice improvements as well:
    • Made placing half blocks on existing half blocks (to make a full block) easier
    • Limit framerate on menu screens, no longer uses 100% cpu and make my computer melt
    • Fixed fatal crash for converted worlds to anvil, when there’s blocks at max height
    • Fixed an old bug with signs clearing text while you’re editing them in SMP
    • Fixed crash when logging in while there are blocks at maxheight at spawn
    • Fixed TNT ghosts in multiplayer
    • Fixed storage minecarts dropping enchanted items
    • Fixed crashes on invalid server addresses when joining a server
    • Fixed entities being uninteractable if they existed at login (Multiplayer)
    • Fixed dupe exploit with paintings
    • Fixed furnaces and dispensers dropping enchanted items
    • Fixed the “flickering” of chat as it vanishes off the screen
    • Fixed text rendering over items in the container screens
    • Fixed exploit with jungle saplings (turns other saplings into jungle ones)
    • Fixed launcher opening minecraft dir if the path contains a space
    • Fixed an off-by-one lighting bug
    • Fixed block transmuting (turning one block into another via pistons)
    • Fixed placing mushrooms in daylight, where they can’t survive
    • Fixed redstone lamps dropping powered block items when destroyed while on
    • “save-all” (server) now works even when you have toggled “save-off”
    • Fixed turning half-blocks into full-blocks while you’re standing on them
    • Fixed seed displaying in F3 debug when the seed is unknown (multiplayer)
    • Fixed villager texture changing clientside per profession
    • Fixed falling off ledge corners while holding shift
    • Fixed players falling when reconnecting to servers where they were previously flying
    • Chat history and much better chat editing
    • A few new decoration blocks
    • “Back” and “Quit” buttons to OutOfMemoryScreen
    • Made cats more realistic (read: probably annoying). I hope it’s enough to cancel out any joy you may receive from the previous feature!
    • Added a “minimal” debug menu for testing with. Shift+F3 to hide the graphs.
    This is just a short announcement to let you know that we are aware of this and are working on it as I type this. Please note: Minecraft 1.2.4 has bumped the protocol version, so it is incompatible with 1.2.3.

    Thanks for your patience and understanding.

    Only that you don't pay for Bukkit, so shut your mouth.

    The official modding API (ie, built-in bukkit) is coming out with 1.3 so why don't you calm the fuck down. The bukkit devs don't owe you or anyone else, anything. Bukkit is a free tool made by generous people in their free time. I think its unreasonable to expect an update the same day as a patch, and like it was said before, just download the dev version if you really can't wait.

    You are, in fact, a hopeless noob who knows nothing about software development.

    Bukkit Team Do what they can, Since they are with Mojang it should not take them weeks for Beta Server for New clients Patches . We Just need wait on Plugins to update with Beta and stable builds. For People who run servers we all know it takes time for plugins to catch up. Some of my plugins took weeks until i saw update to current build or Beta Builds. Everything takes time and Bukkit is not going jump when people start crying. Players that jump the gun and update and find them self not able to connect to there servers, well why not just hit button not to Update and play until the server updates its really simple.

    car buyer: But I want it now.. my car doesnt work without it
    Dealer: Im sorry but it clearly says that we didn't have a engine for the car and that you would have to wait plus you havent paid for the engine only the framework which you were more than happy to use untill you saw it was possible to have a engine.
    car buyer: thats not good enough
    Dealer: you know what.. tough luck :D

    P.S. 1.2.4-R0.1 (Build #02102) --> http://dl.bukkit.org/downloads/craftbukkit/view/00959_1.2.4-R0.1/

    Where did you hear about this Modding API? I'm pretty sure it's NOWHERE near done.

    To update my servers bukkit, do I delete the current craftbukkit.jar in there and replace it with the dev one?

    If you want, but what you start it with I run it with a bat and added more ram so what I did was change the directory from the old one to the new craftbukkit jar.

    Jeb said on Twitter that 1.3 wouldn't be released WITHOUT the modding API. This is the reason they hired some bukkit devs onto the Minecraft team.

    Edit: Source:
    YouTube, not Twitter. Whoops! "We have decided that the next update, 1.3, will not be released until we have a Bukkit alternative server-side."

    With 1.2.4 development release we are getting

    ""Internal exception: java.io.IOException: Received string length longer (141 > 119)"

    I'm not sure where to post BukkitDev reports.

    Too much bitching and moaning here. Tell the users in the MOTD that they shouldn't update. I let all my users know through a tumblr that a new release is out and that they shouldn't update if they want to continue playing on my server.

    To run it with a bat file..
    1. Open notepad
    2 add this to the notepad file. Top is for a 64 bit bottem is for 32 bit
    SET BINDIR=%~dp0
    CD /D "%BINDIR%"
    "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -Xincgc -Xmx1G -jar craftbukkit.jar
    [USER=48566]Echo[/USER] OFF
    SET BINDIR=%~dp0
    CD /D "%BINDIR%"
    "%ProgramFiles%\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -Xincgc -Xmx1G -jar craftbukkit.jar
    3.save it as a .bat file where your craftbukkit.jar file is..
    4. make sure craft bukkit is called craftbukkit.jar
    5.run the .bat

    (did i miss anything?)

    The hell is a .bat I'm a mac! not a PC!

    Server failed to start: The server failed to start multiple times, but the reason why is not known. You may have a corrupt server

    Ahhh! What'd I do wrong?!

    Dev build worked for me, and I'm on a MAC.

    However, I have Zero Mods running, so that may have helped...

    has anybody else the problem that you see only normal sandstone when you place the new sandstone blocks

    While I appreciate everything Mojang and Bukkit are doing to give us a fun, playable experience, it has to be stated that it is extremely frustrating when you finally finish updating your server with all the new mods and plugins a few weeks after the last update, and the next day all that work goes to waste when the next update is released for Minecraft. I hope the next craftbukkit build comes out very soon.
