Scissors 1.19.1 is now out. You can download it from https://scissors.gg/downloads. In the likely event that page doesn't work, you can download it directly from the CI Server at https://ci.scissors.gg/job/Scissors/job/1.19.1/
Let's address the elephant in the room: chat reporting
I think this excerpt from the PaperMC forums sums it up well:
Chat Signing and Reporting Concerns
We have received a great deal of concern regarding our stance and support for the new chat signing aspect of Minecraft. As such, we figure it best to clear up a few points in this announcement.
First: Paper will add support to its API so that plugins, servers, and developers that wish to use these features have the ability to without hindrance from us.
Second: Servers, plugins, and developers that wish to disable chat signing will also have the ability to do so without any hindrance from us. We will not enforce the use of Minecraft's chat signing features nor will we use our software to actively prevent the bypassing of these new safety features.
Third: We may choose to implement restrictions on our community's discussion of the bypassing of chat safety features. Similarly to offline mode servers, we would not at the same time prevent people's actually doing it, and will leave that decision up to each server owner and anyone using our software.
Fourth: Paper is not so involved with Mojang as to be able to make changes or decisions on this new system. Mojang has generally been involved with the community for years in multiple ways, but we have done all that we can do by bringing up various concerns about the new system with them and leaving it in their hands.
Finally: There is more information on the new system at https://gist.github.com/kennyt…244ca0321bbd882c347892874. This is accurate information as far as we know, and will be updated as new information is made available.
This is pretty much where I stand as well. After having some previous discussions with Wild, we think disabling the chat report system is the best way to go for TF. Unfortunately, as of right now, everything is still in the "wait and see" phase where I don't have a concrete answer. Our options are to add a toggle in the Scissors configuration file to prevent the server from acknowledging signed messages, or to have a plugin achieve the same thing. At the moment, Paper doesn't actually have support for signed messages at all. You can follow this PR for more information: https://github.com/PaperMC/Paper/pull/8198. As of right now, there is no patch in Scissors because there are no signed messages at all.
From my understanding, as long as we're on 1.17.1, there is no way for 1.19.1 clients to report messages because the server doesn't know how to sign messages. ViaVersion *might* be able to add support for it but I doubt they will.
As always, this is an early release. Make sure you make backups of your server files, and especially make backups of your worlds. If there are any bug reports, please reproduce them on Paper first. If you can reproduce it on Paper, report it there instead,
