So many Minecraft updates, 1.6.1, 1.6.2, 1.6.3 and now… 1.6.4. Some false claims, many bug fixes. When will this stop? It’s not just the players are impatient, the server operators are too. As Notch has been giving frequent updates since the many new bugs popped out after the release of 1.6, the Bukkit team cannot update and release their new version of Bukkit, which, makes many people waiting. The CraftBukkit one is updated though, however, it’s not recommended for servers to use it yet as it is not supported by the latest version of Minecraft yet.
“I’ll be scouring the internet for further reports on how Minecraft 1.6 is performing, but preliminary research and our own testing has revealed it as unplayable due to chunks sporadically loading or not loading. “
As the Bukkit team says while they are working diligently to get the new ones out when Notch finalises with the updates.
