Jens and Notch have just announced that the 1.8 pre-release .jar is available for public testing. It is important to remember that this is NOT The final release of 1.8, and is still extremely buggy. If you find any bugs, or need support, please join the #minecraft channel on irc.esper.net using your favorite IRC client!

NOTICE: This version will only work if you've paid for Minecraft, all the more reason to step up!


Here's the download links:

Client: http://assets.minecr...e/minecraft.jar
Server: http://assets.minecr...raft_server.jar

For directions on installing, MCF user GmZ has written a very brief tutorial for Windows located here.

If you'd like to discuss the leak on the forums, please do so in this thread: http://www.minecraft...-18-pre-release

FIRST!

EDIT: Crap. I posted first and nothing else so I could be first, then you ninja'd me.

Actual INFO: This is EPIC! But, .net won't load so I can't do it :(

I'd kinda rather just wait for its actual release for some reason. But for those who can't wait, yay! :D
