I use Mojang's server for my single player games so that I can share them with other people and I thought I might as well switch to Bukkit since it can do more.

The only problem is... I am using the 12w26a snapshot and I already have a save file on my server which I want to move over to Bukkit.

I can handle transferring the maps but how can I make Bukkit work with 12w26a?

Your best bet is to try the latest Development build. Don't forget to back up your world! – fredley Jul 3 '12 at 14:08
the latest one seems to be "1.2.5 R4.1" does this correspond to the Minecraft version or should I just try anyway? – Oztaco Jul 3 '12 at 15:55

Bukkit does not update for snapshots. You cannot run a Bukkit server on anything except a primary release. Unfortunately, you are out of luck. You'll have to run a vanilla server or just wait for the next full version to be released.

Oh ok, that suck, thanks for the answer. – Oztaco Jul 3 '12 at 16:23

On the Bukkit wiki homepage there's a link to download the development snapshot for both CraftBukkit and Bukkit.

Thanks a lot man! lol – Oztaco Sep 15 '12 at 0:23
-1 for being wrong. That's the latest developer snapshot of craftbukkit for the latest release version of Minecraft (1.3.2 at the moment), not a release of craftbukkit for the latest Minecraft snapshot (12w36a "pre-1.4"), which is what the question is looking for. @leaf68, you've probably discovered the error by now. – SevenSidedDie Sep 15 '12 at 15:48
@SevenSidedDie Yep, I was wondering why we couldn't log in with 12w37a took me a while to realize that was for 1.3.2 – Oztaco Sep 15 '12 at 17:34
