OH NO, a Minecraft update has broken Bukkit! What do I do!?

    First off, relax.

    If you're using the new Minecraft launcher, you have a choice on whether or not you want to update to the latest Minecraft release - simply choose "Not now" when it asks if you want to update and you can continue to play on your pre-update Minecraft server.

    If you're not using the new Minecraft launcher, backup your old launcher and update it by downloading it from http://minecraft.net, then follow the steps above.

    It usually takes us a few hours AT LEAST to get Bukkit working with the latest Minecraft update, so you're better off playing a different game or staying on the previous version of Minecraft, instead. If you have a special server that requires lots of mods, like a class-based server, consider backing up your world, running the new Minecraft update and calling it a grief/fun/fool-around period OR stay on your current version and just keep playing.

    Just remember, always backup so you can switch between versions. You're no longer forced to go weeks without a Bukkit powered server.

    Once we have a new Bukkit build that is compatible with the newest Minecraft update, we'll put it under rigorous testing and then promote it as a Recommended Build. Usually, due to the way Bukkit and CraftBukkit are designed, plugins should work just fine but there's no guarantee that this is always the case so be sure to test everything on a test server before you go live.

    Lastly, we're fully aware that a new update is out - usually before anyone else. Don't spam the forums with threads or IRC with messages informing us that there's a new Minecraft update out. We know. And we're working on updating Bukkit to work with it. The more you bother us, the longer it'll take.

    Have fun!

    @Fekillix o_o Yes. They're all named "craftbukkit-0.0.1-snapshot.jar", for technical reasons.

    You won't lose your plugins. What's your setup? How are you running CraftBukkit as a server?

    Hi. New guy here. Go easy on me :p

    Why is it that the op functions keep changing?
    When I first started, the /give function needed the exact player name (even if you were giving to yourself, the exact item number, and the amount. And it tossed the item out in front of you.

    Then I upgraded to 556 after a day of realizing my version was outdated, and the /give function seemed to be improved. Instead of throwing the item out, it put it in the inventory, you could type in the item name if you didn't know the number, and if you wanted to give an item to yourself, you didn't need to specify a player.

    Now I've upgraded to 617, and the /give function is back to its old self. Am I doing something wrong? Or was the function downgraded for stability or something?

    People would stop asking if its out, if there was some indication on the front page/download page/announcements threads that there has been an update. The only way to know that there has been and update is to read through this thread. Why not create an announcement that its out and sticky it to the front page like they did this thread?

    @ZerG Patience might be the best option there. High-demand plugins have a lot of pressure to update quickly.

    Oh, and just in case, I'd like to divulge a little problem I ran into and clarify something in case anyone else is having this issue and came here to figure it out. The main page of the wiki is still out of date and has the wrong versions listed for the recommended and dev builds. And for some reason no one seemed to think it would be a good idea to put an indicator on the recommended build page to let you know exactly what version it is you are downloading. This caused me a good hour of grief searching for the correct build just to find I had downloaded it already.

    Silly Bukkit team. Thanks for the update! Despite your confusing wiki lol...update that thing!

    Whenever I try to start a server with any of the RB's compatible with MC 1.4, there are no errors when starting it up in terminal but when I put my ip in the server.properties and try to log into it on minecraft im stuck at a screen that say "Connecting to the server...". Can anyone help me?

    @Troopah What's your setup? Are you trying to access another computer hosting your server internally/externally, or are you just running it alongside your client?

    You don't need to put your IP in the server.properties file, and which IP are you using to connect to your server? I was having trouble using my own external IP, but when I switched to the internal IP I never have that problem any more.

    Find out your internal IP and try that (probably 192.168.x.x) or use localhost

    @Troopah Rawr, EthernetHub beat me to it. :p

    Anyway, when you configure the IP setting on the server you're only using a single integer to define which port to use. When you're running it on the same machine client, it's best to just not bother and use "localhost" when you want to join that server. So, try it out, let me know how it works. :)

    Hey guys I just got the new build, and some of my plugins like worldguard are not working. Help?

    Actually to be more indepth about it, any mod that worked with tools (like teleplus, using item 288/feather to quick jump) isn't working. World edit and world guard re working, but things like super pick axe, region defining, region checking arn't wokring.

    EDIT by Moderator: merged posts, please use the edit button instead of double posting.

    Is bukkit updated to Beta 1.4? I can't seem to find any article that answers this query. Also - how does one check one's bukkit version?

    Also, the concolse spits out "BLOCK DAMAGED" for all the plugins when attempting to load them, and some random stuff and some message "Is it updated?" But the plugins do load.

    @EthernetHub @KoryuObihiro Whenever i put my internal ip in my server.properties, I get the error
    Maybe If I explain what happened since my first server It will help you, I used LogMeIn Hamachi to get my server ip (which is and I put it in server.properties and everything worked fine. I had all my plugins installed and I just got my first server running. Then the next day MC was updated to 1.4 so I had to update. I put my old server on a flash drive, I started a new one with I think RB 612. I used the same ip as before and everything worked. So I waited for plugins to be updated, but then I heard Rb 617 was out so I deleted the 612 server and tried to update to 617 on the same ip and that when I got stuck at "Connecting to the server...". So I tried to go back to 612 and 605 and the same thing happened again.

    I'm not familiar with LogMeIn, what benefits does it provide for a Minecraft server? I might want to check it out :)

    Have you tried connecting to your server using your internal IP in the game client and leaving the server.properties IP field blank? (just to see what happens, to help the troubleshooting process)

    Also, can other people connect to your server? Or are you the only one having these issues?
