1.12 upgrade status thread

Post by bigpresh » Wed Jun 07, 2017 7:08 pm

So, as you may have seen, Minecraft 1.12 was released today (June 7th): https://minecraft.net/en-us/article/wor ... r-released

Naturally, some people are going to be asking "So, when's the server being updated?", so this thread will be updated with the latest news.

As usual, we won't rush it - first releases are notoriously troublesome, with potential stability bugs (and, in the past, we've seen some item-loss etc bugs that would have bitten people hard if we'd rushed into upgrading right away, and have been able to report/fix bugs upstream rather than having our players suffer from them).

Spigot (the server software we use) have a 1.12 pre-release, but at the time of writing, no "stable" 1.12 build yet. Once there are stable 1.12 Spigot builds, we'll build them on our test server and give it a whirl, to make sure everything works as it should, and, importantly, that our key plugins work well with it (Grief Prevention, NoCheatPlus, and our own custom stuff).

Expect a week or so, but it could be more than that if problems are found, or maybe even less, if Spigot get a stable build out quickly and we find no noteable problems.

Spigot already have their first stable 1.12 build: https://www.spigotmc.org/threads/bukkit ... 12.246398/

Pretty swift, much respect to them!

Will be getting their latest builds on the test server over the next few days and seeing how things go, will continue to post to this thread, you might want to consider subscribing to it for updates. (EDIT: just above the first post you should see a "Subscribe topic" link)

1.12 is on the test server.

Initial results looking good, after a few updates.

Note to self, I updated: GriefPrevention, Mutliverse-Core, Multiverse-NetherPortals, ProtocolLib

First noted problem that isn't fixed yet: parrots aren't protected within claims like horses etc are. Looking in to it, raised a bug with GriefPrevention and will have a play, but I'm not at all convinced it's a GP bug - possibly a Spigot Bukkit API bug.

Right, 1.12 is on the live server.

If you find anything wrong, please report it to the 1.12 issues thread: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=836
