    UPDATE: We finally made it! Joel and Kory were able to successfully update the server and all its plugins late last night after some pretty extensive testing beforehand. Having gone through many Minecraft server updates myself, I know the effort that's required of it and greatly appreciate them both for tackling it! Good job fellas.


    That's right peoples. 1.5 is just around the corner! Friggin feels like we've been waiting/promised 1.5 since November, but it looks like March 13th is the magical date.

    Now, onto what you're probably wondering:

    * There have been no development Bukkit releases for 1.5 yet, so we don't have anything to test against;
    * There will be a delay between the time 1.5 is launched and the time 1.haftacraft.com is 1.5-ready;
    * Unicorns do mate in the spring, but only on Wednesdays (Hump Day) in meadows of black orchids;
    * We will begin plugin testing/validation as soon as a Bukkit development release is made available;
    * We will not be generating a new 1.5 map, rather, will be using one of the existing ones. Exact details of the map shuffle still need to be handled by Joel, Kory and myself;
    * Yes, when a tree falls in the forest and nobody is around to hear it, it still makes a sound

    I was feeling quite humorous at the time, but was definitely not drunk. Drinking, yes, drunk, no.

    I've been drunk with Scott before. I wouldn't exactly say it's a blast, more so a confused stupor where nobody understands why the circle has a radius of 60, or why it is so profoundly important except for Scott. I will however admit, it is entertaining and does give me lots of ammo to use against him.

    I personally won't take any new patches into consideration until I see:
    -implemented dragons
    -implemented /dance command.
    -Haftacraft server relocated to Australia.

    That is all.

    We will look at your request and take it into consideration as we are currently really busy this might take a while (20 years) so please be patient

    So, a quick update, as of Monday, less than 20% of our plugins (and we have many) on the server have been updated for 1.5. I'm going to run through the list again tonight to see what has since updated, and hope we're closer to at least 40-50%.

    As of today, 10% more plugins have been added to the 1.5-ready list. We're getting there .. somewhat faster than previous major releases, but not as fast as I'd like.

    We've tested a great majority of the plugins, they all seem to play harmoniously with each other with some tweaks. We're testing and patching the main server right now
