Thank you to our community for bringing us information on this issue.
If you haven't heard, there has been some tragic news that started from this Bukkit.org Article saying that CraftBukkit has had it's run and it's dying because of legal issues with Mojang.
We'd like you to know that we will not be discontinuing any of our Minecraft servers, and we will and always have been following the terms of Mojang's EULA. If you want to know about what the EULA actually contains in relation to our servers, please see this article.
In short, Bukkit is not dying. It's community is simply fed up with the confusion of the legality of the CraftBukkit project. There have been numerous supportive tweets from members of the Mojang team, reporting that they will see CraftBukkit through the 1.8 update safely.
"That's essentially where we are now - Bukkit is going to be updated for Minecraft 1.8. The immediate future is clear."
If anything is to go haywire, Robobenklein will personally rewrite plugins. He is fluent in Java and the Bukkit API.
Thanks for reading.
P.S. Anyone interested in helping me write some artificial intelligence in Python?
