1.8 is coming out pretty soon (September 8th to be almost precise, although Mojang is known to be late with the updates), and this will be time where all of hell will break loose. We will be working on the server, but we are limited by the time it takes to update all of our software. After the Bukkit and Spout Dev teams update their software, we will begin the process of customizing the server. This will mean the general customization of the Spoutcraft Client and the Server side plugins. We want the player to have as little need to use commands as possible, meaning shortcuts will be created, such as pressing the 'h' button on your keyboard will bring up help with all the shortcuts in a visual screen. Yes, this means no more messy chat commands. The chat will be reserved for chat itself between players, and all the notification will be done through a comprehensive gui via the client. This also means new achievements will be created.
Right now we are going to start working on the map, plan for which you can see in the below post. We are going to advertise and find professional builders who will have an exclusive access to the whitelist. All plans for the map will be put out on the forums, which we seek to have heavy use for the users and builders.
If you are curious as to the progress of the map, we will put out a feed of the map which will be constantly updated soon.
