    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.

    Wouldn't most people here be running a server...? o_0

    Complete idiot. I've run extremely large minecraft servers with over 200 people at points, and apparently I understand more than you. It is not any of the Bukkit Developers jobs to update Bukkit. They get absolutely no benefit for it.

    "takes a long time to make an RB" also has no significant sense at all. If they wanted to, they could release an RB within the click of a button. Would it be stable? No. That is why they don't do it as it deceives the title entirely. The title states that it has been tested for quite a while and works entirely.

    First, Don't be an asshole.
    Second, Stop complaining about server donations, Mojang and CraftBukkit teams are not here to line your pockets.
    Third, unless you have direct intimate knowledge of what is going on behind closed doors at Mojang, please don't just assume the Mojang and Bukkit devs are sitting on their ass doing nothing.

    And to anyone else who is bitching about an update, STFU, you are getting free software.

    Bukkit is notified about an update as soon as we are -- you know as much as they do. they CAN'T be ahead of the update.

    I disagree entirely. The Bukkit dev team does all of this for you for free -- back off.

    And you think you are? lol If I was a member of the bukkit team I would be sad to see these posts. Such a shame to think I wont see the end of this type of behaviour before I die.

    Though I'm no expert and I don't read tweets or blogs, I would assume that maybe Bukkit did know about the soon to be released 1.2.4 and held off a RB for 1.2.3 to make sure that they had a super fast RB for 1.2.4?
    Hell even if they didn't your actions are not welcome to something that (like everyone knows) is free, it's just plain rude.

    I run a server myself and have around 10-15 plugins and yes I'm quite pissed off that I have only just recently got things to how the community likes them, that doesn't mean I get to bite the hand that feeds me.

    Thank you bukkit for your work, and I haven't said yet but gratz on the jobs guys! you deserve it.
    Looking forward to getting an update ^^

    I run a small family server (about 12 people on at once), and yeah, the down time isn't fun, but I welcome these updates because that means that more will be offered to the community. I'm patiently waiting and looking forward to what comes! :)

    Don't worry, your plugins are unlikely to require updates. Just needs the new craftbukkit. :)

    Notes to everyone else:
    * The update will be out when it's ready. My personal no guarantee guess is tonight.
    * You have not paid the bukkit team to update craftbukkit.
    * You likely won't have to update your plugins unless that developer wrote it really odd.
    * This is not a support topic.

    When do you fix bukkit 1.2.4 then?[diamond]Kealiman[diamond]

    Don't take it personally. To my thinking, there are 10 million people tweeting them and asking in forums. Should they reply to everyone with a firm date as to when a future release they're working on will be ready, when there is little chance of them being close to accurate?

    Oh? How do you know this?

    To me , it looks like you're an self-entitled knob who is bitching that something free isn't moving at the speed you demand. Look, I don't like empty servers and broken plugins any more than you do, but bitching won't hurry things along. We all knew this would be a painful transition. Either wait or walk.

    Bukkit team great work so far! Congrats some of you joining Mojang! Your work is much appreciated.

    To all complaining are your players so completely retarded that they can't stand playing on the old version a bit longer? If they can't then get new players or hit them with a cluebat. Your complaining is completely unacceptable in civilized society. Did I read right that some of you actually pull the server down when a new version arrives? :eek:

    Will plugis break with new CB? I hope no. :/

    Even if they would want to get faster, they need to wait the update because they need to work out with the Obfuscated code (That code only releases with MC updates)

    Normally no. Plugins only break if there's major API changes.

    James Allison and people that agree with you need to read this.

    First, last time I checked you pay absolutely ZERO dollars to use CraftBukkit, therefore, they owe nothing to you in return.

    Second, they probably didn't ignore all 13 tweets you gave them. They either already answered your question, and you are lazy and did not read through all of the posts or they are busy trying to answer the hundreds of other questions they are asked daily, and have fallen behind.

    Third, the fact that your server loses donations is not their problem either. You are essentially making money off of other peoples hard work and then complain that they aren't working on their work for free fast enough for you. If you want faster updates then learn how to code yourself and write your own bukkit version.

    Fourth, based on your little emo rage I would put you around the age of twelve and have never been part of an organization that has merged with another organization. It is one of the hardest things to do in business and takes time to sort out and integrate.

    Fifth and finally, you and people that agree with you are, for lack of a better word, assholes. All you do is complain and complain and complain and bitch and moan and then complain some more and never do anything productive. I'm tired of reading through threads like this one and on bukkitdev seeing people complain about slow updates. As I said before you pay NOTHING for all of the software you use that is written by regular people with real lives and other responsibilities. And then you still have the audacity to COMPLAIN and say things like, " this is bullshit," and , "get your act together." This makes me wish developers could control who gets to use their software.

    It would be nice if updates came out faster and I believe eventually they will come out simultaneously. Until that day comes be patient and wait for your free software.

    First, Bukkit has stated on multiple occasions that they don't respond to impatient users who can't wait for a new RB to be promoted. It will be ready when it's ready. You clearly do not have any idea what you're talking about if you are upset with Bukkit about this when it has been the case all along.

    Second, no one cares that you're losing donation money. Why don't you get off your lazy ass and get a job instead of waiting for donations to come through. It's not Bukkit's job, a job they do for free, to make sure you get cash for sitting and doing nothing. Also, you clearly don't understand how Bukkit works because you haven't read a thing about their new release system. The beta builds work fine currently. Even though this has been posted multiple times, let me link you to it. Also, because this has been posted multiple times I assume you have trouble reading through text. Let me highlight it for you:
    The RBs are for new API changes and the Beta builds are to get the server usable in a relatively bug-free state while we wait for a new RB and new API changes to come out. The beta builds work fine.

    Now, if you get your act together, take the time to actually read some things on the site, you would find Bukkit is doing their job quite nicely. Now stop being an ungrateful SoB and wait for them to release an update that they will be doing for free.

    If you can't use the beta builds, use the vanilla server because if you continue acting like a twit, I doubt you will be welcome here.

  22. This will get rid of your plugins mate but most are updates within 2-5 days
    Have Fun !

    It will not take long mate probs later or tmoz have fun !


    to switch it go into your servers files and it will say craftbukkit delete that and replace it with the new 1.2.4 download then rename it craftbukkit

    Good Luck !

    The answer to when an RB will be promoted is the same as always: it will be promoted when it is ACTUALLY recomended. This may be a week, it may be a year. Not until every last known bug is ironed out will an RB be promoted. If you want to use dev or beta builds instead, that's your choice. These answers and more are easily avaliable to you on the forums, or even on IRC (No, coming in and getting impatient then leaving is not a valid reason to call it "dead", because I'm sitting here staring at it right now, and it's not dead.)
    I don't really think you do fully understand. If the team recommends something that is not recommended, what's the point of doing it? That's a completely horrible way to run a "recommended build" system. The devs actually are sitting around all day on their "lazy ass" and squashing tons and tons of bugs so that you CAN have a recommended build.
    This is progress, friend. If you don't want bugfixes, go back to 1.2.3 and encourage your entire population to do so as well. Have you looked at the bug tracker for 1.2.3 bugs? There are still tons of them to be solved, that's why there was not an RB and the team works day and night to fix these things.

    I think instead of only thinking first about yourself and your server and how much this will inconvenience you, you should pay a little respect to developers who are human beings and work hours/jobs that would be considered by the vast majority of people to be horrible, yet they enjoy it and do it for us, the community. Just.... chill!

    I doubt most admins are as you say "lining their pockets". Minecraft servers require a fair amount of server power to run and at a premium cost. Many server admins such as my self provide FREE SERVERS with this FREE SOFTWARE - however... the cost of hosting is NOT FREE. We RELY on these donations to keep these services running.

    IT is the SERVER ADMIN's that the BUKKIT Community serves. WITHOUT Server Admins - there is NO BUKKIT and there is no Multiplayer Minecraft... you are left with SP Mode. So when Server Admins, BITCH about things like this, it is because we are NOT "Lining Our Pockets", but the opposite... we have HOLES burning through our pockets because the whole DAMN Minecraft Community from the players, to the server modders to MO-Freaking-JANG itself RELIES on Server Admins, to actually HOST SERVERS.

    That's a joke. You can't get a minecraft player to read a sign at the spawn point with the most simple of directions. Try conveying to them to NOT update on a surprise update - what, are server admins telepathic or something?

    ---- There is a serious lack of respect throughout the community for Server Admins and the admins in this thread or justified for their BITCHINESS. The very very very least that could be done is before a breaking update is 2 or 3 days notice that a 1.2.4 release will be coming out instead of just dropping it on our heads. That way we can atleast prepare our players.... If you think the Admins on the thread are whining, why not visit their server's forums and see what the players are saying.. The shit always rolls downhill in Minecraft and the SA's are knee deep in it. We should convene a Server BLACKOUT day in protest.. oh wait, we don't have to... Mojang did it for us.

    haha... so many self-righteous freeloading bastards here

    i actually kind of miss the days when modding a minecraft server was at least moderately tricky. it meant you had to know what you were doing. the bukkit team did too good a job at simplifying all of that, nearly completely removing the entry barrier. now anyone can run a server, including some of the whiny twats posting in this thread.

    i understand that its not easy to code this. But i think you working with mojang now looks a bit different. Even if the bukkit team did code the new updates, why all the delay? They updated the stuff themselves, can't be too hard to do it again or even better parallel? When they said that there would be an RB soon after the update, i sorta expected this. They test and RB a lot, and looking at the update log here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/lv?key=0AjHYJuqMjzkndHJfX3BwdkdVdnJLTERyLWNGMy1fLVE&toomany=true, it seems that they aren't working on an update too fast :/ i know they did this for fun, but now that they work with mojang, they have set certain standards. I think the merge with mojang was a mistake, but u can't undo it. Just hope the update will be done soon.
