Minecraft 1.7.6 has been officially released: https://mojang.com/2014/04/minecraft-1-7-6/
We've already added Vanilla and Spigot 1.7.6 builds in the Multicraft panel. The Spigot build has backwards compatibility with 1.7.2, 1.7.4, and 1.7.5 clients.
Have a Spigot based server that crashed? There was a time based bug, which has been fixed in the latest builds.
Clients running 1.7.2 can easily update by selecting "Spigot 1.7.2 (R0.3)" in the HostHorde panel.

Good news, everyone!
Minecraft 1.7.1 is currently scheduled to be released tomorrow at 15:00 CEST, as per https://twitter.com/jeb_/status/393400494405980160
Some server mods, such as Craftbukkit, may take some time to update. More information can be found here: http://www.reddit.com/…/17_prereleased_17_official_…/ccxx1br...
If you wish to continue playing on 1.6.4, you can modify your profile in the Minecraft launcher. Here's a quick video tutorial: http://screencast.com/t/PjXxhOWySs

Both Craftbukkit #2865 and Spigot #1091 development builds were added to the Multicraft control panel last night.
Updating is strongly advised, as they patch a recently discovered authentication exploit.

Did you know? All HostHorde servers set up since early February are using either Xeon E5-2687W or Xeon E5-2690 processors. (Excluding discontinued London locations)
Check out some benchmarks: http://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html
Both these CPUs have a turbo frequency of 3.8Ghz, and a QPI speed of 8GT/s. Additionally, we use two of these CPUs in each physical HostHorde server, for unparalleled performance....
