Good news everyone!
We have started rolling out the 1.9 upgrades
The hub and creative servers have now been upgraded to 1.9, but don’t worry, you can still use 1.8 on hub+creative until everything else is upgraded! This way you don’t have to keep swapping between 1.9 and 1.8 Minecraft client just to change to one of our other servers (eg. going between survival and creative).
Remember, this is still in testing and development so please report any major issues or troubles you have.
