Major New Feature:

@Mode Side Control:

New @Mod properties to define which environment to load the mod on.

clientSideOnly will only be loaded in the Client environment.

serverSideOnly will only be loaded in the Dedicated server environment.

Combine with acceptedMinecraftVersions to prevent users from loading the mod in the incorrect environment.

For the love of god modders USE THIS! It'll stop all those 'you ran a 1.7 mod on 1.8!' and 'you ran a client mod on the server!'


Command Exploit:

Fixed several exploits that would allow players to run commands above their privledge level.


Downgrading Netty:

The version of netty shipped with the vanilla dedicated server jar contains bugs. So Forge downgrades it to match the version of Netty that the client uses.


BlockState.json format change:

Modders have been whining seince day one about the new json model format that was introduced in 1.8. They have some valid points that it is quite verbose. Which is what Forge is here to address! {Seriously guys, working forward is better then bitching}

See https://github.com/MinecraftForge/MinecraftForge/pull/1885 for more details.


B3D Improvements:

- fixed keyframe transformation application

- textures are now resolved the same way as in vanilla models

- added the ability to use forge blockstate texture information

- removed unused code from the B3D example


Loading Screen:

Thanks to Fry for working on a new loading screen for Forge.

You can see it in action below, it works on 99% of end users computers, however some OSX/Linux graphics drivers, and some mod combinations do not behave with it correctly.

So, we have added the option to disable it. Simply go into .minecraft/config/splash.properties and set enabled=false.

If Forge detects one of the common errors it will automatically disable this entry and show a error message in the log stating that you should simply try running it again. But if all else fails you can manually disable it as previously stated.

It works with 99% of users, and it's far better then just a 'not responding' screen so it's enabled by default.



FML and Forge Official Merge:

FML and Forge have always shipped together, but for my own sanity and easier maintainability FML and Forge are now in the same github repository. FML will no longer be shipped standalone because nobody ever used it. And eventually everything in FML will be merged directly into Forge. Code and packages will most likely stay the same so modders, don't worry! This is mainly just a ease of development {no longer having to push to 4 repositories every time I change FML}


I do Forge for free, however the servers to run it arn't free, so anything is appreciated.
