Weather Forecast

Post by Enlighten on Fri Mar 02, 2012 5:05 am

Although this has happened a few days ago already and some of you may already know about this, but Craftbukkit project (the one 99% of the Minecraft community are using for servers including us) has been sold out by none other than Mojang. While the CB team are making it sound all fine and dandy and how it is 'the next step' towards perfection, this may be true in the very long term but if we're talking about immediate effects, this is a downright lie not to mention the fact that they are getting paid vast sums of money.

So what will happen to Craftbukkit? While the developers were originally going to continue it indefinitely, after talks with Mojang, they have decided to drop development completely and start from scratch on an official API for Minecraft. What this means is that every single plugin or modification used on the server, apart from ones depending on Spout will cease to function in a few months time. What I'm trying to say is in the next few months, expect longer downtimes and maintenances as things will need to be replaced and/or repaired, because when Craftbukkit dies; there's going to be one hell of a shitstorm.

Just for the record, this will not bring about the termination of the project. I will make things work and I have started to plan for the future.

Tis bad news indeed,

and create a new one.

Our future is not insecure as it seems in the opening post, I do have plans to move elsewhere in terms of API for this eventuality and I will try to stay away from the official Minecraft API unless I see real potential.

He added hunger, then he insulted the yogs-fucking-cast on twitter, and then he got money between his hands.

Light there are already unofficial groups that are just waiting for this to happen. Simillar thigs happen to al sorts of programs and there is always an unofficial group that takes the project and do the same work the owners did or even better. So Craftbukkit will still be developed and plugins will still be created without problems or fear that they will cease production.
