Default Both Main Servers are updated to MC Beta 1.4.01

I have let loose the puppies of war! The Survival server is now updated to Minecraft Beta 1.4.01. It has the same Bukkit mods as before, plus one that some of us have been missing :^) Nothing major, but I hope it makes sad moments into slightly happier ones.

Tell us if you have any problems. You will have to update your clients to 1.4.01.

Now to start on the Creative server....

Thanks again matey. Ran into no issues thus far.
Though I was running about throwing bones at the wolves rather then 'feeding' em.

I have now updated the Creative server as well. As for the Survival server, things are pretty much the same as before.

Updates included in MC Beta 1.4.01 (thanks to Version history - Minecraft Wiki)
  • New Minecraft logo (no longer 3D blocks).
  • Added wolves that the player can tame, or kill for no loot.
  • Added Cookies which heal the player for 0.5 hearts.
  • Sleeping in a bed now resets your spawn position, though does not work for most users. Apparently, at the moment the spawn point unintentionally only changes if "Leave bed" is clicked and the function is limited to SMP.[1]
  • Sneaking while climbing will hang on to the ladder, thus being a handy cave tool.
  • Spiders will no longer trample crops and have walking sounds removed.
  • Sheep can now spawn in Pink and Brown (however rarely)
  • Cocoa Beans can be found in Dungeon chests.
  • Wheat grows more quickly compared to 1.3_01
  • The new default hotkey for the inventory is 'E'.
  • Scale of UI may now be changed in options.txt located in the .minecraft folder.

Good work Sor!

I wonder why the wheat is growing faster now? what was wrong with the old speed?
And E for inventory is going to take some getting used to

Funny post from the minecraft teacher blog:
Running a Minecraft server is a lot like flying the Millenium Falcon - The Minecraft Teacher

Running a Minecraft server is a lot like flying the Millenium Falcon

What I mean by that is that there is always something wrong. Some component that’s malfunctioning. Some part you thought you fixed that breaks just when you need it. And far too many little knobs and switches that have to be set just right. But when you’ve got everything patched up just right, it’s the sweetest ride in the galaxy.
(Even if it look like a piece of junk…)

Yeah, as long as it holds together for the next run to Corellia. It's like Rumsfeld said. There are known unknowns and unknown unknowns, i.e. bits that might break because we expect them to break and bits that break that we don't expect. Hopefully we get lots of neither.

Just tried to get on the creative server, but time out, yet others were able to get in - can someone check my permissions over there please?

Cheers,
