MCAU: Now with 1.6!

Just a quick post to let you guys know that the survival server is now fully up-and-running on 1.6, so feel free to update your client and jump on!

It may take a little while for PVP and Creative/Events to catch up, but hopefully not too long.

If you have any issues feel free to jump into IRC and we’ll try to help. (Note: If you do join IRC, stick around in the channel for a while if no one gets to you immediately. We’re not all watching the screen 24/7. 😉

1.6 is out.

With horses. And mules. And coal.. And a pile of other stuff.

And Mojang’s auth servers have – unsurprisingly – died.

As this is a pretty massive change, we’ll probably be running a temp map for a few days while everything stabilizes. However, we’re probably not going to bother doing anything tonight. Don’t bother to upgrade for the moment.

However, and here’s a cool new thing – the new launcher lets you specify which version of Minecraft you want to play. So in the future, upgrades should be much less painful for you guys. Yay!

More updates as they come. Feel free to hang out on IRC with us tomorrow as we start welding things together.
