I hate to be the bearer of bad news but sadly it's of those posts :(
Over the weekend, the majority of Bukkit staff left Bukkit. This is the final nail in the coffin for Bukkit and we can now call it "dead". As Bukkit was hit with a DCMA and Spigot was soon hit with one as well, they can't legally update anymore.
All is not lost, however!
I'd like to bring your attention to Project: Sponge
Sponge is a combination of a new API (likely based off of Spout/Flow’s APIs) implemented on top of Forge, with assistance from other parts of Minecraft’s modding community (Glowstone, Canary, etc.).
It will be both a server and client API, and its target user base is pretty much anyone that wants to mod their game, including server owners. However, we may focus on the server-side portion first.
Sponge is a mass collaboration between most of the major developers in the MC modding community and based on the design document it seems very promising!
What does this mean for WoM?
Thankfully, WoM is pretty unaffected from all this! The biggest issue is bringing 1.8 to our network will take a while. We intend to use sponge once it's available.
In the mean time, we are looking into short term "muck around" solutions!
We will keep you updated as more news develops!
