Curious about servers

I recently made a server for a few friends and myself to play on (don't worry duders, I'm still on the site server), but I'm curious how updates work with it. When the new jungle biomes arrive where will they spawn on my server?

As I currently understand it, jungles are a feature that will not appear in existing worlds. If you would like jungles, you must generate a new one. This is not the case with all modifications, but it seems to be de rigueur for terrain generation enhancements.

@CaptainTryHard: I'm pretty sure you'll have to explore ungenerated areas. Biomes are generated, and when new a added, you'll have to move to a new unexplored area of the world. After the update of course. I'm almost 100% sure that the old world will generate them, since it's been that way everytime they've added new biomes.
