It has now been around two years since CraftBian seized development, and i have therefore been thinking about what the best approuch would be to for the system to become End-of-Life.
CraftBian has from the beginning relied on some webservices located at my place, and since i do no longer maintain CraftBian, it would be best to shut down these webservices. However, since CraftBian needs those, it would make the system highly unresponsive since it would constantly be trying to connect and talk to these webservices.
I will therefore shortly release an update, which aims to completely remove all references to my webservices, and make CraftBian more selfsustained. Heres what is going to happen:
- After this update, which will be version 1.6, the Update system will essentially be disabled, since it will no longer have anywhere to look for updates.
- The automatic server creation feature has until now been using a webservice from cba.today to get the newest Minecraft server.jar automatically by automated code. This code will now be moved into CraftBian itself, away from the Webservice, adding a new settings menu to change the variables if/when Mojang changes their website.
- The online documentation located on this page has been integrated into CraftBian it self for convenience
The update is available right now, and will be available for the rest of 2020, where after the webservices will be shutdown permanently
If you by 2021 happen to have not managed to update CraftBian through the web interface, and therefore experience a slow and unresponsive interface, due to the webservices being shut down at that point, you can manually update it by downloading the update here. To do a manual update in CraftBian go to the About tab -> Click the Update button -> Switch to Manual -> Select the downloaded file -> Click update
Thanks for anyone who have supported this project! It was a fun time and I learned alot.
