So the time has come for me to get some things out, I should’ve announced a while ago.
CraftBian 2, will most likely never see the day of light. Neither will further development of CraftBian 1
I’m sorry that i have to announce this. But you might also have known it somewhat already, since no news about development for CraftBian has been released for over a year. The reason I’ve decided to do this now and not earlier, is simply because that I’ve actually wanted to get back into the development of CraftBian 2, but the only thing that has changed since i began, is that I’ve lost even more time to work on it.
My wife and I bought an old house back in july last year, which we took over in November last year, and that has simply taken away all the time I’ve had. Since its an old house, there’s just so much stuff to work on and we’re not even close to being done yet. I’ve refused to give up on CraftBian, but I must admit, that i can no longer defend not letting go any longer. So the conclusion had to come to this.
CraftBian has never been anything I’ve made lots of money from. Not many people has ever bought it, BUT that has also never been the thing that has been driving me to continue the developing it. It has always been because of the interest in both programming and Minecraft.
I wont completely rule any future development out just yet. Once we get settled in our house and things begin to fall in place, I will for sure return to programming. And a good way of doing that might very well by picking up CraftBian 2 were i left off. I just cannot say when that will be.
But until then, its been a good and fun ride. The project started as an idea i had with a fellow student to be able to run a Minecraft server on a Raspberry Pi.. I had never imagined it would evolve into a full fledged web administration interface!
Many of you know that CraftBian relies on my web services provided on cba.today. Those are not going to be shutdown anytime soon. They will continue to operate as long as i have cba.today which I have no plans in shutting down. Basically this means, that everything should continue to work as it has been doing until now. I just cannot guarantee that i will fix the web services, if they break down, as fast as I’ve been able to earlier. The CraftBian listing on Sellfy has also been taken down, and i plan to make an announcement inside CraftBian that will link to this post later. I might also take down the Facebook page later, I’m not sure about that just yet.
I want to make a special and HUGE THANK YOU to my friend Shadowstreik. If it wasn’t for this guy, CraftBian wouldn’t have made it even close to as far as it did. I truly believe that he has been responsible for finding, reporting, testing and helping crush at least 70% of all bugs in CraftBian. So to whoever still uses this, you owe a thanks to this guy!
Thanks for all your support and help along the way.
