Just a quick note to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Hopefully Santa has brought you everything you wished for and you all get to spend some quality time with your friends and family.

Thanks for a wonderful 2016, and we're all looking forward to an even better 2017. Until then most staff will be taking a much deserved break, so we suggest you all do the same.

Happy Holidays

Our software has been updated to Minecraft 1.11.2.

In order to get 1.11.2, simply run the latest BuildTools.
Code (Text):
java -jar BuildTools.jar
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.

As of this post, Minecraft 1.11 is now the default version generated by BuildTools. This means that bug reports will only be accepted from a recent 1.11 version and our community volunteers will be preferring to give help and support for this version.

The promotion of the 1.11 series to default, two weeks after release, means that we feel it is more stable / feature complete than any prior 1.10.x series release, and that your server would be at a disadvantage in terms of features/bugs/exploits by running an older version. You should also keep in mind that the majority of plugins requiring updates will have been updated by now (if only in development builds), and if not then it may be time to begin investigating alternatives as it is likely they will never do so.

We have kept the outdated startup delay for the time for the time being, but reduced its impact even further. If you do not update your server after 10 days, there will be a 15 second delay and warning message before it starts. Remember that new versions are released daily, and getting them is as simple as re-running BuildTools and replacing your server jar.

Yesterday marked the fourth anniversary of these forums.

We've come a long way in those last four years (as I write this there are over 1000 people browsing this site), and I'd like to thank everyone from server owners, to developers, to players, to staff, who have supported us throughout this time - especially those who have been around since the very beginning.

See you in another four years,
Long Live Spigot!
