    Why you should use it
    EssentialsX provides several performance enhancements and fixes that are currently not available in Essentials and Spigot-Essentials, most importantly fixed mob spawner support for 1.8+ servers. See the wiki for details.

    EssentialsX is almost a completely drop-in replacement for Essentials. However, it has different requirements:

    • EssentialsX requires Vault to enable chat prefix/suffixes and group support if you have a supported permissions plugin.

    • If you have an unsupported permissions plugin but still wish to use wildcards, enable use-bukkit-permissions in the configuration. Otherwise, the plugin will fall back to config-based permissions.

    • EssentialsX requires Java 7 or above.
    Other Info
    This is an unofficial fork of Essentials. It will be consistently updated and maintained with the latest Minecraft and Spigot versions.

    Thank you for keeping Essentials alive after many years.
    But can you please say where exactly is GroupManagerX that is updated based on this plugin?
    There are many updated GroupManagers and i'm not sure where is the correct one.
    Can you please comment the link below for me?
    The Jenkins page that is mentioned in the description does not contain EssentialsX-GroupManager.
