When the 1.8 update is released (not sure when) it will take time for Bukkit and plugin developers to update to 1.8 as well, so CathalCraft Towny will take an undetermined amount of time to update after 1.8 is released.
That being said, when CathalCraft Towny does update, ONLY the Nether and End worlds will be reset. The old 1.6 world, viewable on Dynmap, will also be deleted. If there are big or complex builds built on the 1.6 world, I will take a look at them and move them to a newly generated 1.8 world after the update. The portals on the World Portals island st spawn will link up to the new 1.8 world. All ranks, items, money, and so on will not be deleted or reset. Items will be able to be moved to the 1.8 world.
If anyone has any questions, feel free to post it in the comment section below.
The Towny server has been updated to 1.7.9. This update contains many bug fixes and further preparation for the UUID changes Mojang is implementing. It is recommended to update your Minecraft to the latest version, at least 1.7.9, to get the latest bug fixes and be able to properly see the heads on the server. Edit your profile on the Minecraft launcher and select the latest version of Minecraft.

To kick off summer starting at the end of this week, a new build contest has been started! The theme is air ship. It will be easier to bear the heat of summer soaring through the clouds in an elegant air ship. The judges and I are looking forward to seeing and test driving everyone's air ship.
