jeb_ has recently made the world aware that Minecraft 1.5 is now available, however we’re not ready just quite yet.
Please do NOT upgrade yet! If you do so, you may be unable to access your CraftBukkit powered server, as the Bukkit team has not updated CraftBukkit/Bukkit yet.
If you do upgrade, keep in mind that you’ll need to upgrade your server in order to play on it. Since CraftBukkit is not yet available, you’d need to change your server to vanilla Minecraft.
Plugins will not work, if you switch to vanilla, and anyone will be able to build on your server.
In short, unless your server is running on vanilla Minecraft, we highly recommend against upgrading until Bukkit releases an update for CraftBukkit.
We have just found a failing hard drive on node 21 Phoenix, which will be replaced shortly.
As always, no data has been lost, but we have temporarily taken down the system until further notice. Once the drive has been replaced, we will bring the node back up (within the next 1-2 hours).
We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.
Update: The drive has been replaced and the servers on the node are back online.
We recently became aware of Node 19 being down, and possibly having hardware issues due to recent outages.
We are currently keeping the node offline for further testing, and will keep this post updated as we receive updates.
Update: The node has been brought back online and all Minecraft servers have been started.
