As some of you may already be aware of there are some very concerning things happening with the Bukkit project right now. For those of you who aren't aware, Craftbukkit is, for the most part, what we use to run MutinyCraft. In reality we use a custom version of Craftbukkit named Spigot, but nonetheless it is a "child" of craftbukkit which are all part of the Bukkit project.
In the past few days one of the developers that contributed to the Bukkit project decided that he no longer wanted his contributions to be part of the project any longer. Essentially he sent Bukkit a cease and desist letter that asked them to no longer provide links to download any Craftbukkit version that contains his work. I'm not really going to get into a huge amount of detail about this right now as there are very few facts about what is going on to provide.
What I can say is that MutinyCraft has no plans of going anywhere anytime soon. However, we may have to wait slightly longer before we can take advantage of the 1.8 features. The bottom line is that until the legal issues Bukkit is facing go away or are resolved there will be no updates. I wish I had more to pass on, but that is all I know right now.
