    Hello !

    Work perfectly in 1.10 but we have a problem with a jail. If we jail a player in a boat, this player comes out of the boat and not going to jail. At the end of his jail, the player lost his inventory. We don't test with a horse but it same possibilities Sorry for my bad english ^^

    There was a developer version built which should have fixed the double clicking issue. I haven't personally tested it because I don't run a Minecraft server any more. If someone wants to test it, then please contact me via private message.
