It is the monthly blog post for Glowstone 2017.11, my Glowstoners. For December, we will be working on purging bugs from the server to provide a stable final version for this year. More details will follow soon!
Come say hi and ask questions on the Discord server <3
This month, we did things:
mastercoms has been working on a new "block/item functions" for a few weeks. It removes the ItemType/BlockType hierarchy which led to multiple issues, and will be replaced by a new system. It will be extendable by plugins to add their new items/blocks with custom functionality. More info can be found in the PR.
I was testing ProtocolSupport with the latest version of Glowstone and it was broken. So I fixed things. So now you can seamlessly use 1.4.7-to-1.12 clients on Glowstone using the plugin, with build 182 and above!
Also, we are welcoming Kyureki (a.k.a. smartboyathome on GitHub) on our developer team! He recently implemented the
/clone command, which is currently under review.
Finally, I just wanted to point out that we had a high increase in traffic on the website and GitHub because we got voted up to the top on Hacker News and the front-page of /r/Minecraft. That's very cool! It wasn't us who posted them, I promise. Thanks for all the stars and love <3
I think I have used all possible variations of "thanks for reading" in the previous posts, so I'm just going to say:
Thanks for reading! :)
