FTB Direwolf20 and FTB Mindcrack: Both released. These packs will be updated upon request by the relevent parties.

FTB Lite: Pack should go into testing over the next week. I would like to see this pack released in the next week or 2. This is NOT a fixed date but just an internal target. (Very soon)

From now on we will only be releasing mod pack and launcher updates on a Monday. This does not mean that we will be updating every Monday, just this is when updates will generally be pushed to help admins plan etc. The only exception to this is if a critical update needs to be pushed in an emergency.

Updated 18/01/13 by captainnana, hopefully some of these things will be pushed on Monday!
