Hello, the Sponge project has been progressing very rapidly and as a result, Sponge may be available by the end of the year. Livecraft may experience a time with a lack of plugins, but this will be necessary during the conversion process. Livecraft will always have the core features, as well as MCBans and a block logging plugin such as Prism. As for the 1.8 update progress, we have a spawn built and ready to use in the next 1.8 map. This will make the update much quicker, as we can copy the new spawn from the temporary world used to build it to the new 1.8 world. As always, I’ll keep you all updated.
