Bukkit is dying. Microsoft is taking over. The world is ending.

Well.... Right now the future of Minecraft is very unclear and has been for a few weeks now. If you haven't heard already, Microsoft has bought Mojang (The company behind Minecraft) and Notch is no longer involved with anything the company does. I am staying positive about this acquisition especially because of previous frustrations we have had with Mojang regarding their Mod API, slow time-frame, and lack of good server support. We will see what Microsoft brings to the table.
Very shortly before this acquisition, all downloads of Bukkit were removed from the internet in every location they were previously available (Spigot, GitHub, Bukkit.org) because of a copyright takedown request by an old Bukkit developer. Both sides of this issue claim they are in the right, which sadly means it will probably take a long time to become resolved and with the recent acquisition of Mojang (owners of Bukkit) by Microsoft, Bukkit could quite possibly die. At the moment, my predictions about the future of the Bukkit are not so bright. I do, however, think that Spigot could rise up and take over. If you are interested follow the news at http://spigotmc.org
With all that said, what does this mean for VoidTeam? Well that's an excellent question and I have no clue what the answer is. For now it means we will allow 1.7 and 1.8 clients to login to the server, but any 1.8 items will not work since the server-side will still technically be 1.7. Please feel free to provide any input or suggestions about our future. Thanks guys!
BUT... For now.... Here's a picture of a taco....
