We normally update our servers right after Mojang releases a new update, if you are using default Minecraft you should just need to restart your server for it to take affect. If that doesn't work please open a ticket and we can help assist you as soon as possible.
Normally updates for Spigot/Craftbukkit take a week or so for their updates, however once they are updated we will add a new file onto the drop down menu for the latest version example "Mod: Spigot 1.9".
Sure!

Create an account for that user you want.

Once done this log into your account then click users, after that type in the users name you want to have control and give them the access you wish for them to have.

Please note that we don't suggest giving everyone control to your server unless you trust them as they could delete all of your files if you give them that access.
