Cool, I'll be updating the second it comes out. Probably the only advantage to running a vanilla server. I'll move back to Paper when it catches up and eat any performance loss until then.
I'm a pretty new Minecraft server admin and I'm running vanilla. I haven't been through an update yet, but on all the servers I've ever played on the admins end up resetting the world. I've read about the update process, but do you have to regen a new world to get the new environmental elements?
It has been several years for me and am getting back into server hosting. Will Bukkit and plugins immediately work with the new version, or do we have to wait for a new Bukkit version? I remember in the past, we had to wait.
