Jeb recently tweeted that 1.8 will most likely not be released tomorrow (9/13/11), but an update to the pre-release that's currently in circulation was highly likely. Mojang wants to make sure this release is the best it can be, and is continuing to squelch bugs even as they fine-tune the features.
Ok. CAN'T WAIT TILL 13th!!!! xD
EDIT: Omg i got first on a post like this...
Also If they need to wait for tomorrow to crease out the bugs, that is fine on me xD
ANOTHER EDIT: Guys, don't complain they are taking along time, they are making the update as good as can be.
It's very possible I will never see this thread again, unless you quote me. If you need me to see something, quote me on it.
Hey, hey you.
You know that plus button over there?
Yeah, the one above the MultiQuote thing.
