Updating to 1.11
So, Mojang recently released the first version for Minecraft 1.11, which means MCP, Bukkit, Spigot, and Paper should update in the coming days (hopefully). Just like last time, I think we should consider updating how we push new future updates (note that I am not talking about bug fixes, but features in general) -> we will probably change our version scheme to a Minecraft version-independent update cycle: having our own betas, releases and versions with support for a specific Minecraft version.
In other words, I think we should start off with what we have, and progressively update with new features starting from major features not currently implemented (AI, Rails, some generation stuff, etc.) and then going on with more recent additions (1.9-1.10-1.11). Obviously, the first thing I am going to do is to update the protocol to 1.11 - without necessarily adding all the new features included in the Exploration Update right away. Hopefully, we will be able to push important features quicker than we normally do.
What do you think?
Near-future development priorities
Hello fellow Glowstoners (that sounded nerdy),
I’ve recently been working on different aspects and features for Glowstone in the past few months, whether it be the tile tick format implementation, updating to 1.9.4 then 1.10, fixing some inconsistencies, the new website, etc.
However, I also have a bunch of stuff I have tried implementing and never finished/wrapped up. I have working prototypes most of these… here’s a list of a few I can think of:
- Entity AI prototype (branch here with demo)
- 1.11 snapshots (branch here and Glowkit here)
- Packet API (PR here)
- Projectiles (thanks to LukeDeLoop/DeprecatedLuke)
- Rails (connecting them together)
Since I’m not the best at prioritizing my time, I’d like to know, what would you like me to work on first? It can be anything, on that list or not. I’d be more than happy to hear your opinion. Albeit, there are some that could take longer than others… ;)
Thanksidup for reading my post!
