Upcoming Update: 1.8

1.8 will be released sometime in May 2014 (maybe another month of snapshots?).

This thread allows you to talk about recent updates to Minecraft, but there are rules to it. Read the rules below the news section. I will also be regularly visting this thread to read the comments section.

NEWS

Spoiler:


Key:

Bold = What I really don't want to see (except for rule 4).
Normal = What I want to happen.

The Rules:
  • Be polite.
  • Do not use offensive language.
  • No insults or any way of offending others.
  • No offensive pictures.
  • Please stay on topic (unless your a moderator).
  • Do not talk about real life problems / issues.
  • Do not discuss computer issues.
  • Do not report bugs / glitches here, go to the Official Minecraft Bug Tracker.
  • Also do not discuss about Minecraft Xbox 360 or Pocket Edition here! You must find a thread like this, but only for that platform!
  • Please do not advertise YouTube channels here!
  • Do not suggest features here. That's for the suggestions forum!

Judging by Jeb's and Dinnerbone's words I wouldn't expect it next week either, but I'd love to end up being wrong on that though.

Really? You guys should be happy they even have snapshots. It's only been a month since the last official release! People complain about not having snapshots, then the same people complain that the snapshots that come out have SO many bugs and glitches! They really should just not give anything to you people. Release a full version every 6 months and be not hated as much.

     Back to the OP I hope that it will be today. And why would it be on Friday?

I looked through Twitter and didn't find anything. All he said is that that he's almost done with the new achievement and statistics system.

Just wait. They always wait a month or two between updates. Take some time off and enjoy 1.6. If they continuously update instead of taking a break, imagine how horrible it will be for the modders and the bukkit team.
