    Update 16 January 2021: We have updated to 1.16.5. This change is almost completely compatible with 1.16.4 and simply aligns with Vanilla (crash bug already fixed by Spigot).

    Update 3 November 2020: We have updated to 1.16.4.

    Update 11 September 2020: We have updated to 1.16.3. This version fixes a single bug with pathfinding (the duplication was already fixed by Spigot).


    A short while ago Mojang released Minecraft 1.16.5 and we have now also updated.

    It has also come to our attention that a number of mirror sites have been advertising severely outdated builds of Spigot as the 'latest' version. This caused significant issues for many users when 1.16.1 launched as users were reporting critical bugs for weeks after they were fixed. Please ensure you use the /version command to check your server version before reporting any bugs. BuildTools is the only official source of Spigot builds.

    In order to get 1.16.5, 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.

    BungeeCord is also updated and can be found on Jenkins.

    Come on people, just use the official BuildTools! I know mirror sites are 'easy', but that means you're relying on someone else to update for you.

    For a new Minecraft version, where updates are coming out all the time, this is especially important.

  9. Not only are you relying on someone to update it for you, your trusting that what you download does not have any malicious code, from what i hear there are a fair number of mirror sites out there which distribute jars which are both outdated and with malicious code inside of them. neither of which anyone wants to deal with :p.

    Thanks for the update md_5 :D

  10. Gotta love the fast updates, thanks!
  11. Did anyone else got spigot-1.16.1.jar instead of 1.16.2?
    Edit: I've copied the command:
    Code (Text):
    java -jar BuildTools.jar -- rev 1.16.2
    It contains an space between -- and rev, please fix that, thank you! :D
    Edit 2: forgot to thank spigot team for their hard work!
