EDIT: The repo's have been moved, please access them at their new locations

As part of our previously announced plans to consolidate all SpigotMC projects into one GitHub account, the following projects will be moved to https://github.com/SpigotMC/ later today.
Thankfully GitHub now provides full redirection from the old links to the new links, however these redirects may not be around forever, so I advise you all to please update any git remotes, and edit any posts / threads to include the new locations as you see fit - if you see links to the old locations, please file a report and our staff will edit accordingly.

Thanks for your cooperation

#934 has been promoted to RB to fix some important issues in the previous build. ALL owners are advised to update at once.

Promoted an older Bungee build (#514), be warned of issues with newer builds.

Well, its been over a month since the Long Live Spigot post and I feel like its time to go over how far we’ve progressed. First up might I say that the response to that post was absolutely amazing, the support by each and every one of you has been incredible, and I feel it has really boosted the Spigot community as a whole. Today I’m going to cover the changes we have made in the recent weeks, which have occurred as a result of the goals set out then. You may have noticed many little things such as slightly snappier forums, a multitude of new Bungee related sections, as well as Tapatalk support, however there have also been some bigger things emerging, such as the wiki, which will become the documentation and community hub for all SpigotMC projects. To this end I’d like to congratulate brajo on receiving the title of “Wiki Team Lead”, and this next paragraph is a short excerpt from him outlining the use of the wiki.

This is a heads up to say that I will be tinkering with the forums a little bit this weekend in order to ensure the best experience possible. Last weekend I updated most our addons, and all went well. This weekend I plan to do a few things:
  • Update remaining one or two addons - 1/2 Done!
  • Transition to our updated Flexile theme - Done!
  • Install a backend cache server - Done!
  • Potentially update to Xenforo 1.1.5 - Done!
  • Install Tapatalk - Done!
The first bullet point will cause zero downtime, as it is a routine operation, there is only
As many of you know, Flexile is outdated and unmaintained so I have updated all templates to Xenforo 1.1.4. You can test them out by selecting the in development style. The forums should look exactly the same, however I have redone some of the style internals and templates to ensure a smoother upgrade to Xenforo 1.2, so take a good look incase bugs arise.
We will also be installing a backend Memcached server to boost performance even more, not that it isn't snappy. This may log you out, don't be alarmed, just relog.
Finally if the template updates go well, we will update to Xenforo 1.1.5. This shouldn't cause any issues bar 5 minutes downtime.

As always, thanks
As part of out continued goal to provide the community with the best possible services, we will be having some scheduled downtime tomorrow night.
During this downtime, the only service expected to be affected is Jenkins. The works are expected to take no longer than 1 hour. During this hour we will be migrating Jenkins to our new dedicated server, resulting in faster build and response times for all.

Over the last few days we have been migrating other services to this server including our IRC bouncers and Maven repositories. The transition to a more powerful system will allow us to provide more goodies for everyone, including the private GIT repo hosting. A number of you have expressed interest in this, and it will be set up shortly.

If you have any issues, or would like live status updates, feel free to chat with us: http://www.spigotmc.org/pages/irc/

Thanks as always!

We are nearing the one year anniversary of Spigot, and boy oh boy have we come a long way since then. In approaching this milestone in our development, I think now would be a great time to look back on all the great things which we have done, and all the great things which we have planned for server owners, developers and players into the future. This post serves to outline where we wish to go in the future, and to garner community feedback on the various options and ideas that we have available to us.

Current Development
Our current development focus is code cleanup, stability and configuration. We have chosen this goal as most of the core Spigot team will be dealing with mid year / final exams over the next few months, and development time is limited. By the time we are done, I anticipate that we will have achieved a few outcomes. Namely that each Spigot change will be in its own, standalone patch, and that all configuration options will be moved to spigot.yml. The spigot.yml file, is a file to which we will be slowly phasing in to cover all Spigot specific options. In this file you will be able to configure any setting specific to Spigot, enabling easier segregation between Spigot and Bukkit features.

Move to MCP
One thing that has been holding us up in the rapid and stable development of Spigot, has been relying on CraftBukkit code, and obfuscation mappings produced by the Bukkit team. Whilst we thank them for all their hard work, the core team has decided that at the end of Q2 this year (hopefully before / just after 1.6), we will be phasing out the use of mc-dev as the base for all our patches. Doing this, and still retaining 100% binary compatibility with all NMS using plugins is no small feat, however thanks to the development of two fantastic tools (SpecialSource by md_5 & agaricus, and Srg2Source...
