Bukkit team joins Mojang
An announcement just came out yesterday that the Bukkit team is now part of Mojang. They will provide the official server API for Minecraft and extend it to support client-side modding. They will still update Bukkit for Minecraft 1.2, then will create the official Minecraft Server API afterwards.
To people who don't know what Bukkit is, it's a Minecraft Server mod that makes managing and creating servers easier while providing more flexibility. I hope this will make our server greater than before (pants-explodingly great :3 -- ed).
