1. Donor benefits is something the Mods were going to implement, but it hasn't been done yet. I think it's simply because in order for certain groups to access certain benefits they need a plugin that hasn't yet been installed. I have donated as well, although I think if anything a fancy coloured name and a title would be enough for me.
2. Well since all this time after the 1.1 release it still wasn't installed, I'm guessing that kind of thing isn't a priority. Very few people used it on the old server anyway as we're much more of a vanilla crowd to be honest. But anyway, we'd have to wait for Bukkit and then iConomy to update before the mods could even prepare to install it, so I expect weeks before that kind of thing begins to work.
Grrr. I have to hate Mojang for still having no crossover between their updates despite how close together they are. I'd personally like to see servers able to run on the previous update while stuff like Bukkit and the individual plugins are released, but still be accessible to updated clients. To be honest I wish they'd stop adding features and start enhancing the experience of the game itself. Minecraft will become an old thing before it's even released if they carry on adding and don't stop to think about changing old features for the better.
Still, the thing that annoys me most is that my laptop of 2GB refuses to run Minecraft (at lowest settings mind you) at higher than 15FPS. And yet the moment OptiFine is added, I can run the game in its most beautiful state at around or above 30FPS. Why isn't a mod like that part of the game itself?
