CraftBukkit has now released a fix to the chunk issue that was delaying the update. There are now new issues that will require about 10 or more plugins to udpate in order to be fully combatible with 1.3.1. Although, they do still work as they are.
I have been testing the plugins with the latest version of CraftBukkit and they seem to be working well so far. The real test would be to see how everything performs with 30-40 players online at once.
The plan as of right now is to update the server to 1.3.1 tomorrow morning around 11 AM CDT (Central Daylight Time). This will allow me to hopefully have a good amount of Moderators and Support Admins around that can help log on the server to quickly ensure everything seems to be working. After we ensure everything appears to be in order we will open the server back up to the public.
I was planning on updating the server today or possibly tomorrow, but CraftBukkit has a very large bug with chunk loading/unloading. This causes huge server lag when there are more than a few players online. As of right now, it is not plausible to update to 1.3.1.
As soon as CraftBukkit has a fix for the chunk issues I will work on updating the server. This could be tonight, tomorrow, or a few days from now. I was ready to update today, until I found out about this bug.
MutinyCraft should be updating to 1.3.1 within the next few days. It could be as soon as tomorrow (8/3/2012), but that is still not certain. We are waiting for a few plugins to fix some issues they are having before we can update. Please be patient and check back for more info on when the update will happen.
Minecraft 1.3.1 has been released. That does not mean the server has updated yet, though. So, if you choose to update you will be unable to log into MutinyCraft unless you have a backup copy of the old version of your minecraft files.
You have a few choices that will allow you to keep playing on the server until we can updated it. Those choices are; save a backup copy or you 1.2.5 minecraft files and just switch them out when you want to switch back to 1.2.5 from 1.3 or you can just wait to update until the server is updated to 1.3.
I realize most players will want to instantly try 1.3 and that is why I recommend making a backup of your 1.2.5 minecraft files so you can easily revert back to it. If you do not do this you will need to download a minecraft version changer or something similar.
Just a reminder, do not ask for or post minecraft files on this website. They are copyrighted and you are not legally allowed to redistribute them. If you need to exchange something of this type use your email.
The expected date that the server will be fully updated is not know at this time. We have several plugins that need to be updated, as well as the main server software CraftBukkit. Once we get closer to that time I will try and estimate a date that the sever will be updated. Usually it takes at least 1 week after vanilla minecraft is updated for servers to update.
