After a significant delay (due to Minecraft's new Java requirements), I'm happy to report that the JDRGaming Minecraft server is now running Minecraft (Spigot) 1.17.1.
I also performed forced full world upgrades for both the previous version (1.16.5) and then for the new version, which should minimize glitches and lag associated with block generation.
Minecraft 1.17.1[*1] includes a load of bugfixes, mostly addressing fairly obscure issues. It also includes amusing changes like this one: "Non-screaming goats now have a rare chance to produce a screaming goat when bred".
I've tested the basics, including checking significant recent player constructions, and things seem to be okay.
