Notable changes in 1.7.6, 1.7.7, 1.7.8, 1.7.9, and 1.7.10:
- I’ve got nothing.
These updates only really add support for features that we can’t use (yet), and the switch to UUIDs (for the forthcoming name-changing) have caused headaches for both admins and programmers. For example, before I was able to add an offline player to the whitelist with “/perm player setgroup PseudoKnight Everyone”. Now I need to get a player’s UUID and use “/perm player setgroup 617a67e5-7988-4645-af56-42c770a6dda5 Everyone”.
So why did I update? Eventually I had to take the plunge to take advantage of plugin updates as well as 1.8. So I waited for Forge support and for plugin authors to fix some major issues caused by the UUID changes. It took me a few hours to sort out some unpredictable bugs, it seems to be running smoothly now (minus an extension). We’re technically on 1.7.9, but we’ll be on 1.7.10 shortly and the clients are compatible.
