  5. ProtocolLib v4.1.0

    I realize versioning got a little ...complicated... since I decided to drop legacy support. So, with the release of 4.1.0, the main branch of ProtocolLib will support 1.8 and up. The legacy branch, 3.7.0, will support 1.7.10 and below. I encourage all developers who added ProtocolLib version checks to adjust these checks accordingly or remove them altogether. Now, on to the meat of the update.

  8. ProtocolLib v4.0.0

    Hello everyone!

    It's time for a major release, the first one since 2013. The reason for this is major changes in the project structure and removal of backwards compatibility.

    For server owners:

    ProtocolLib will no longer provide backwards compatibility. The released version will only support the latest minor version of Minecraft, so in this case it will only support 1.9.x. The reasoning behind this is two-fold:
    First, it would have been a pain and required lots of extra code to maintain...

  9. ProtocolLib v3.7.0-BETA: 1.9 update!

    Hello everyone!

    This is a beta build of ProtocolLib with 1.9 support. It's a beta build because it has not been fully tested, nor is it backwards compatible. I will work on restoring backwards compatibility and further testing for the full release.

    A side effect of the 1.9 update was the changes made to data watchers. Basically, Mojang added a bunch of bloat, so I was forced to add that same bloat to ProtocolLib, which broke backwards compatibility.

    Special thanks to @NavidK0 for his help...
