1.8 - Where is it?

Post by SirPsp on Tue Sep 09, 2014 1:11 am

There's a good chance we will not get to 1.8

Currently, the only possibility for running 1.8 is to go vanilla, which means no plugins, no protections, no ranks, total chaos.

Any other servers you see on 1.8 are either vanilla or really on 1.7 and just accept 1.8 clients to join.

And it's likely that we won't see 1.8 non-vanilla servers for quite a while. Except maybe forge mod servers, which require modded clients to join.

Here's why:
The lead dev of Bukkit (EvilSeph) quit, and said he was retiring the Bukkit project.
But then Mojang said no, we own Bukkit and you cannot shut it down.
Dinnerbone, who started Bukkit and now works for Mojang said he would take over.
One of the Bukkit devs (Wolvereness) claimed copyright on his contributions to Bukkit, and got all of the downloads removed.
All of the Bukkit devs quit.

It's highly unlikely that Dinnerbone is still going to release an update for Bukkit, it's more likely that Bukkit is dead.

Some of the devs have started a new project though, called Sponge. It will be a new server software that works with Forge and allows mods and plugins. Although it will take some time before it works, and it's possible that it will require a modded client to play.

CanayMod will eventually get to 1.8, but they are still working on updating to 1.7.10 so that too will take some time.

If no clear light starts to shine on this whole situation by the end of this month, I feel like the best decision will be to close the server down. I don't feel like it's worth paying for an outdated server with such little activity.
The best thing that could happen right now is that bukkit gets an update. If sponge moves forward quickly, it will still take time to update as every plugin will need to be written with their new API. If canary updates first, I will happily convert the server back to that.
But as of now, it looks like 1.8 will not be a possibility for quite some time.
If I do decide to close the server, it will certainly not be forever. Everything will be backed up and we will come back one day.

Sucky, you'd think Mojang would have a handle on it. Sad
