    Bugs or no bugs I'm ready to go come Sunday 8am AEDT and I'm going to play until I've can't swing a pickaxe anymore.

    Isn't that assuming he releases at midnight? Unless he's stated different I'd expect 2 things to happen:

    1. Release is mid-morning / midday sweden time.
    2. The Minecraft.net server promptly falls over and no one can play multiplayer.
    Hopefully I'm just being pessimistic.

    I'm thinking that if everything goes well I might spend Cup day playing it. If not, oh well... It's still looking totally orsum.

    It's a little old but :

    Update will ship just before October 31st:
    0t34: "Will you ship the update before/ after or on the 31st of October?"
    Notch: "just before, Swedish time." (Oct 17, 2010)

    Of course no plan survives contact with the enemy.

    SMP damage won't be in this update.

    It is looking unlikely that torch replacement will not be in this update (whether they burn out or not I don't know yet.)

    I'm backing up the minecraft_server.jar and the current world (in addition to the backups I already have).
    I don't know how this is all going to work, so expect the server to be up and down while we figure it out.
    we rely on hey0's mod pretty heavily, so at this stage we really need to have that updated before we can all get in again. I can get the old server to load, but the client doesn't connect. I can get the new server to work with the new client, but no hey0's mod. So I might make a new world with new server/client and we can much around for today. Any objections?
    Then we can decide what to do with the old world once hey0's mod comes out.
