When adversity strikes, that's when you have to be the most calm. Take a step back, stay strong, stay grounded and press on. – LL Cool J
It looks like our 1.8 update is going to be delayed for a while longer than originally thought. The server mod known as Bukkit which serves as a management back-end for our fun and useful non-vanilla features has become the subject of a copyright fight between Mojang and some of the original development team. Those that are interested in the back story can read Uzimi's shoutbox links HERE and HERE.
For the time being EoE will continue on as it is now with the assumption the legal mess will get sorted eventually. Given Bukkit's popularity with server owners, it's safe to say we're not alone.
