This is the Minecraft server currently running the most-updated version possible of the original game client and server. Cutting-edge, and just as Notch and Jeb intended. We update with the newest Release version available for both client and server from the Mojang developers blog, so please check the thread for notifications and announcements.
To connect to the Vanilla server, download the "New" Minecraft Launcher.
This link is for Windows. This link is for Macintosh. This link is for Linux and everything else.
Once you have the Launcher, double check that your version (in the bottom right hand corner) matches the server version.
Here's some handy advice from Mojang on how to use snapshots, if you haven't before...
On their site, Mojang wrote:To get snapshots, open your launcher and press the “New Profile” button. Call it “snapshots” and check the box saying “Enable experimental development snapshots” and save. To switch to the normal version, you can select it in the dropdown at the bottom left corner of the launcher.
...or (if ours is the only server you care about having the version for, or you just don't want a new profile or something) just go to "Profile Editor" in the launcher, double-click on your active profile (which might be the only one there) and select "-----" from the dropdown menu under the "Version Selection" section.
MS Modded Server Blog
The blog contains links to all downloads, instructions on getting set up and troubleshooting, as well as updates to the pack.
The best way to find help getting started is to visit us on the IRC channel (#mafiacraft) at http://webchat.esper.net .
The first link takes you to the semi-Official CurseForge Minecraft Forums; the go-to location to begin finding Mods for Minecraft!
The other links are to the Minecraft Coder Pack (MCP) webpage and the Minecraft Forge (FML) Forums - those are what makes it all tick!

(It says it's for modded server but it's for both - I just don't remember how to change it. All servers are on the same account so.. If you leave your name I'll know which server it's for. )

To the left: an automatic smelting machine. To the right: an automatic charcoal maker; just add logs and it's off!

The souls of the damned are bound behind bars. Also, skeevy dark tunnel.

Decorated in the style of Maestro's Bag End.
And Tierce's latest bit (as of 1/4/2013), since she swiped the Nether-side of the "spawn portal" to link it to the Nano Farm...
Nano Farm hallway:
If it grows on the ground, it is welcome in this hallway.
There is a ladder by the sunflower that leads to izak's Nether Hub and the actual spawn portal!
