    Not to be a jerk, but it's because you didn't read the change log of the file you downloaded.

    @novrom: Go

    You're on a beta version of jail 3, none of the documentation here on Bukkit Dev is for 3 as it is for 2. You'll need to go to the GitHub source code and look at what is supported and if there isn't anything then open an issue there.
