    Staff Update - July 1, 2013:
    This thread is not from 2013. This thread is about the 2011, BETA version of Minecraft 1.6. There is no ETA for the 2013 Minecraft 1.6 update, as always. Please do not ask staff about when an update will happen, as they have no estimate for you. Again, this thread is not relevant to today's update.

    Update 2 - June 23, 2011 at 9:12PM EST:
    New Recommended Build #928.

    This Recommended Build addresses a few API issues and provides Plugin Developers with more events to work with, allowing more awesome plugins to be made. Unfortunately, this new RB WILL break some plugins (mostly plugins that deal with controlling a player's movement - details can be found near the end of this announcement). As always, please be sure to backup your server before updating just in case!

    See this post for more information.

    Update - May 30th, 2011 at 5:55PM EST:
    Since the release of Minecraft 1.6, we've seen quite a few rapid-fire bugfix updates from Mojang addressing issues the community has noticed and reported back on. While we're glad Mojang are on top of things and getting updates out there quickly to improve the community's experience, this does result in extra work on our part since we have to re-do some of the work we've completed for the previous update. As a result, I made the decision to hold off on getting a build out for Minecraft 1.6 until we were able to evaluate the update and decide if that is what we feel we should do or not.

    Over the weekend, that is what we have been busy doing. Unfortunately, I was out of town and unable to handle the situation as much as I would have liked, leading to a lack of communication on our part with you guys, our community. Nevertheless, my team was happily and diligently working on the update and in regular contact with me. Still, I would like to apologise for our lack of communication, I simply was not in a position to do so.

    That being said, we have noticed a few issues with the update that we've been able to address, so we are leaning towards bringing out a build for Minecraft 1.6.5. Though this build may not address all the issues we've found, it is still usable and produces a playable server with a decent experience. However, I am not yet sure if this build will qualify for recommendation.

    Please bear this in mind when using the build: it is not fully supported (though we welcome detailed, useful bug reports) and not recommended (we can't guarantee stability) to use. There are some Minecraft vanilla issues that Mojang need to address that are beyond the scope of our project to fix and we are still touching things up (like Nether/multiworld support).

    If you want to use the build we'll be pushing soon, please backup your server and make sure you understand the risks before doing so. Once again, we cannot guarantee that it won't eat your cake or spawn tiny creeper babies that take over your world.


    As I'm sure we're all aware, Mojang released Minecraft 1.6 today (Thursday, May 26, 2011) around 5AM EST and we've been hard at work getting a build out that is compatible with Minecraft 1.6 out. Since the release, Minecraft has seen quite a few small bugfix updates addressing some unnoticed bugs and we've pretty easily kept up with them. Unfortunately, there appear to be some issues with the update that is making the game unplayable for SMP players, so we've decided to wait for a bugfix update before we recommend any builds.

    Will there be a CraftBukkit for Minecraft 1.6?
    Given the reports of showstopping bugs present in 1.6, there's a high chance a new bugfix update for Minecraft will be out tomorrow or even several times this week. As a result, it is unlikely we will be releasing a Recommended Build for 1.6 until we have something stable to work with.

    That being said, we recommend everyone stay on 1.5 for a while until the showstopping issues are fixed and we can get a new, stable, compatible build out.

    You can already get CraftBukkit for Minecraft 1.6.4, but it is unsupported and not recommended.

    I'll be scouring the internet for further reports on how Minecraft 1.6 is performing, but preliminary research and our own testing has revealed it as unplayable due to chunks sporadically loading or not loading.

    The bad thing is, that those guys went on a interview right now. So they are not able to fix the serverbuild, wich is a horrible mess.

    Again. Many thanks to you: Bukkit Team and all Plugin Developers!

    I am using 1.6_04 on my server all my plugins are working perfectly and it seems stable enough. However there are some delays when placing blocks/breaking blocks in the nether world but everything else is ok.

    But upon using the warp plugin the server crashed booting everyone... It seemed the server didn't save the last 30 minutes :confused: ?

    Is this a craftbukkit issue or 1.6 itself ?

    Anyway if you plan on using 1.6_04 craftbukkit 812 works great all my plugins booted up great and are working as intended!

  14. Now if only there were a trusted repository of Minecraft client files.

    I just went vanilla, the chunk loading is terrible. It takes average 5 logins per person to sort the problem out.

    Anyone know of a way to roll-back a client minecraft version? Some of my players refused to listen to me and updated to 1.6 anyway. :(

    not really depends what plugins you have. About 80% of my plugins on my server dont work anymore!

    If you have a copy of the %appdata%/.minecraft/bin folder from the 1.5_x release you can simply replace the current 1.6 %appdata%/.minecraft/bin folder with it and that will revert you back to 1.5

    Rob justice, send them the bin folder in the .minecraft folder. and ask them to not update

    #812 is crappy. If you go outside of a map while holding it game crash!

    Good thing I'm on 1.5 :)
    @EvilSeph any chance setting the player compass target will be fixed as well? (I read that notch fixed something to do with compasses on multiplayer)

    Thanks for the status update, much love for the continued dedication and professionalism of the bukkit team.

    Well, this sucks. Especially since we (as server owners) know that 80% of our players update their clients right when a new Minecraft is out, regardless of how many times we tell them not to.
