MFW Minecraft updates
So, uhh, some of you may have noticed that Minecraft 1.8 has come out.
Some of you with good memory may recall that we can't update the server until we get a Bukkit/Spigot update.
Some of you who are clever may have noticed that Spigot already miraculously supports the 1.8 protocol, and are asking why we aren't at least supporting people using the 1.8 client.
Unfortunately, anything packet-based seems to be broken in Spigot 1.7/1.8 compatibility releases because they use slightly different protocols or something. We'll be able to update our plugins manually once we get a full release, but until then, it looks like we might be stuck with this.
We will continue testing, though, and if anyone has the capability and necessary experience to run their own private Spigot servers and would like to contribute to testing, please private message me and ask what they can do to help (you may be eligible for a reward of some Dwarfscraft points).
