The vanilla Minecraft Server (SMP) experience on Windows without the hassle

I only occasionally check the usage stats on this site, so I often miss milsetones, however I caught a good one today!


As of 1st May 2012, YAMS went over 500 installed servers and over 4,500 players across those servers.

That's INSANE.

Thanks to everyone that uses it, I made it just to make running a Minecraft server on Windows as easy as possible, and it seems that for the vast majority of people that's the case.  A lot of the issues reported seem to be edge cases (damn you Windows Home Server) or temporary glitches, which is nice.

I don't know what will be the next "big" feature in YAMS, I think more tidying is needed before I add anything new, but then I get ideas like the Telnet Interface (thanks to Steve Romanow) and just run with them, adding them in a couple of hours.

If you have any great ideas of what you'd like to see in YAMS, let me know in the issues list on Github.
