Is it time to ditch groupmanager?

  1. Just recently returned to Minecraft, and I'm working on a new server.

    However, since I've been gone, it seems like both Essentials and Groupmanager are no longer being updated. I see some fixes for groupmanager that makes them work on 1.9, but I am wondering if it's worth the risk of lack of future updates from them.

    I preffered group manager as to me it was clearly the superior permissions plugin, at least at the time.

    I don't like PEX. Is there another option? Is groupmanager safe enough to stick with for the future?
    (My permission files are always massive, so I'd rather not have to convert within a year)
  2. You're reasoning? Also I don't know why you would post a link to Dropbox when you could easily post a link to the Jenkins where he has multiple builds to choose from securely.

    Anyhow, in my opinion I think you should definitely not use group manager anymore. You don't have to use PEX but I recommend not using group manager anymore. Its outdated and no longer receives any new features etc
  3. What new features could a permissions plugin have...
    And I was too lazy to go to jenkins.
  4. Even though you do not like using PEX, it is still a really good plugin. Group manager has become out dated, but PEX still seems to run steady with no errors. Just throwing it out there.

  5. But you had the effort to upload it to Dropbox?
  6. I went with PEX. Mostly because there are so many converters for it, to other permissions plugins. So hopefully, when a better permissions plugin shows up, I can easily convert it from PEX, rather than have to rewrite the whole thing.

    Thanks for the replies!

  7. I just recently ditched group manager for pex. Pex is easy to use and actually WORKS!! I highly recommend switching now, before group manager completely fails in 1.10
  8. Check out EssentialsX. Always kept up to date, and the essentials devs even recommend it. No more worries.
