dianneteaSpigot has released a way to update the servers to 1.8 and I have pushed this out to the play server (NOT BTG). Keep in mind that these are VERY early builds, I have noticed door weirdness especially with double doors, and there are probably other things that are broken which should be fixed within the next week or two.

dianneteaUnfortunately it looks like we will NOT be doing any updates to 1.8 for the time being as Spigot has been issued with a DCMA thing because some bukkit developer is a dbag, so we'll hang in there on 1.7 until further notice.
