I got home last night from my vacation and saw that there was a 1.7.2 dev build pushed out, and this morning I updated the server to it. I see a TON of errors on the server, and I plan to fix these when I get home form school this afternoon.
I'm looking forward to seeing the server get updated and getting players back online more often again
One of the developers of Craftbukkit, the server software we have been waiting on before we need before the server can become fully 1.7.2 compatible, notified the community via Twitter the other day that a development build will be released soon.
This means that within the next two weeks, we will probably have full 1.7.2 compatibility for the server
I just wanted to keep you all updated on the situation, I am currently out of the country so contacting me wont be as easy as it usually is via Skype or the website forums.
If you have any questions or comments, post them below and a staff member or myself will do our best to get back to you as soon as possible.
Due to the veryyy slow status of the Craftbukkit update, I have updated the server to be compatible with 1.7, without the 1.7 blocks and items. This means if you are running Minecraft 1.7, you can still join the server even though it's only capable of 1.6 blocks and items.
Also, since 1.7 changed how things work from my admin panel, it has become very difficult for me to take care of server bugs and errors. This is why I have not been online much. As soon as the Craftbukkit team decides to actually do some work, the server won't be seeing any official update.
Here's an interesting fact...
The world-famous hackers @evad3rs that are known for their part for hacking (jailbreaking) Apple. Inc's are going to exploit and recode Apple Inc.'s official iOS 7.1 Firmware before Craftbukkit, a branch of Mojang, can update their own game to Minecraft 1.7. Wow.
