All those attending MINECON,

We are going to be having a casual dinner at the California Pizza Kitchen tomorrow night. It's a short walk from the convention centre and reasonably priced (expect about $30 for pizza, dessert and drink). It's not a formal event so you will need to handle the bill for your respective party. Numbers are quite limited so please see us IN PERSON tomorrow to confirm your attendance.

Please follow us @spigot_mc on Twitter for all further information.

See you soon,
~Spigot Team

Hi Everyone,

As promised, some more juicy news about MINECON:

We have ordered a small amount (500) of the iconic SpigotMC wristband design. Hopefully they'll turn out as nicely as they did in London, so if you happen to see one of us throughout the weekend, please ask us nicely for one.

I am pleased to announce that I will be participating in the panel “Using Minecraft Mods for Teaching”, which will take place from 1:30pm-2:30pm Saturday in Room 303. This panel has a great lineup of talented people from within the Minecraft community including Arun Gupta (Moderator, Devoxx4Kids USA), Daniel O’Sullivan (Code Kingdoms), Ryan Michela (Devoxx4Kids), and Justin Richards (Youth Digital).

We would all really appreciate it if you came along to this panel to show your support for us and ask questions.
If you have any suggestion for topics you would like us to cover, please drop them below, but please note the focus is on education as a whole and not any specific platform, product, or service.

Sorry, we're still trying to get guarantees on this. If you're at all interested please be sure to set aside $50 and Saturday evening, we'll hopefully have a great event going.

See you soon,
~Spigot Team
Hey Guys & Girls,

You’ll notice that we’ve been pretty quiet on news regarding MINECON. Unfortunately that is because we don’t have quite as much to share this time around. Since we are less than two weeks out from the event, I thought I would post some brief information about what our current plans are at this stage:

SpigotMC Staff Members
The following SpigotMC staff members will be in attendance at MINECON:
Michael - @md_5 (Australia)
Jordan - @brajo (UK)
Justin - @jflory7 (US) [MINECON Agent]
Miguel - @Xor Boole (US)
We will be roaming around all weekend in our SpigotMC shirts, so if you see one of us please feel free to come say hi.

Unfortunately this year, we were not able to organise a booth for the weekend. Quite simply, the costs of doing so were just too high for us to be able to reasonably justify. This does, however, mean that we will have plenty of free time to hang around with everyone else at the event.

Stay tuned for more information on this.

Last year, we were spectacularly spoilt in the fact that we had a great selection of restaurants in the area who were able to accommodate a huge number of us for a reasonable price. Unfortunately the restaurant selection in Anaheim is slightly more limited in terms of who is able to accommodate us for a price we think everyone can afford. That being said, we have tentatively arranged for a Saturday dinner at circa $50/head. More information should hopefully be available on this soon. Keep the night free, and stay tuned since there is a good chance we will have to limit numbers.

We have an incredibly limited selection of t-shirts left over from last year (around a dozen). We are currently undecided as to what to do with them, but will probably give them away to a few lucky people. If you have a SpigotMC shirt from 2015 or...

We have released new builds of Spigot 1.8.8 and 1.9.4 to enable the /timings paste command to work again.
In order to get this fix please, run the appropriate BuildTools command:
Code (Text):
java -jar BuildTools.jar --rev 1.8.8
Code (Text):
java -jar BuildTools.jar --rev 1.9.4
For 1.10.2 users, these changes are present in the latest version:
Code (Text):
java -jar BuildTools.jar
~Spigot Team

PS: These versions are both very old and do not routinely get bug fixes. It is recommended that you update to Spigot 1.10.2 as soon as practicable.
Something unexpected happened last night - Minecraft 1.10: The Frostburn Update was released. Fortunately we're rather on the ball and can now announce that all of our software is also available for Minecraft 1.10.

This is a faster release cadence than usual, so changes are reasonably limited. For developers there are a few more particles and sounds, whilst players will no doubt appreciate the new polar bears, skeletons and villagers (zombies). BungeeCord retains support for versions 1.8-1.10 as per the 1.9 release notes.

1.10.2 is now the default build for all users. You may request older versions using --rev.

As is the usual custom, you will (for now) be required to manually request 1.10 as follows:
Code (Text):
java -jar BuildTools.jar --rev 1.10

If you haven't used BuildTools to create a server jar yet, it is suggested you first read the 1.8 announcement and the additional BuildTools info thread.

If you have any issues, please don't hesitate to ask for support on either the IRC channel (chat tab above), or the forums. The bug tracker (on is also available, however please keep entries there limited to actual, verified bugs.
