Today was the release of not 1.6, but 1.6.1. Guess they missed something and realized it rather quickly. Anyways, what does this mean for Veterancraft? For those of you that haven't been through an update with us, here is a quick run down. we will continue to run 1.5.2 UNTIL the following has happened:

  • CraftBukkit releases a BETA version for 1.6 OR in some rare cases we have even gone with a stable DEVELOPMENT release. None of this happens automatically and takes time. We've seen turnarounds as quick as 48 hours and as long as 3 weeks.
  • All our 3rd-party plugins must be tested and/or updated to support 1.6. This in itself can take time. Many developers are very quick about it, while others aren't the speediest. Fortunately, we have source code for most of those plugins and if push comes to shove, we can patch them if needed.
  • All Veterancraft plugins must be tested and/or updated. This happens fairly quickly, since we know our own plugins rather well Laugh Furthermore, given their nature, they shouldn't be affected by 1.6 changes unless CraftBukkit throws a wrench into the works.

Only when those tasks have been completed, will we upgrade Veterancraft to 1.6.x. As always, the biggest unknowns are CraftBukkit and 3rd-party plugins (e.g. Residence, mcMMO, Essentials) and to what degree they need to be update to work with 1.6.

We'll let you know more when we know more.
