NOTICE
An updated version of the prerelease (with some major fixes!) is now available!

As with major version releases, prerelease copies are normally distributed to trusted users and developers for bugfix testing and to enable mod updating in time for the official release.
Unfortunately, a version of the prerelease had been publicly leaked by one of the groups.
After a while the leak was sanctioned by Mojang and permission was given for this topic to be published.


Current Version
Minecraft 1.8 Prerelease Version 2: http://assets.minecr...2/minecraft.jar
Server 1.8 Prerelease Version 2: http://assets.minecr...raft_server.jar
If the file ends in .zip, simply change it to .jar


Changes
Mineshaft generation halved
Three strongholds now spawn per map instead of one

Bugfixes: If they still occur, send a PM!
- No more lag when experience balls are dropped
- Furnace now smelting all items correctly
- No more client crashes when placing chests
- Can now break blocks in Nether
- Now able to go into position over broken Nether blocks in Creative mode
- Actual silverfish name displayed when they kill a user instead of base name
- No more items being wiped when accessing Creative mode
- No more randomly catching fire in Creative mode.
- Unlimited water is now available in Creative Mode
- Dyes are now in palette
- Endermen no longer hold grass with side texture visible on top
- Missing items from Creative Mode inventory have been added


Previous version
Minecraft 1.8 Prerelease: http://assets.minecr...e/minecraft.jar
Server 1.8 Prerelease: http://assets.minecr...raft_server.jar


- Any user found distributing the .jar or links to it will be dealt with and have posts removed. The links above should be used.
- Handling a copy will not involve repercussions. The distribution is authorised by Jeb and I have recieved a confirmation on it.
- If you want to know why prereleases are being made available instead of the full version, read this: Here


If you have a copy:
All content regarding the prerelease copies (screenshots and videos) go in this thread.
Any questions/information regarding bugs are to be posted here or passed on to me on IRC or PM.

If your army of Beta testers can't play it, nobody but you should be able to.

That's my opinion, anyway.



I'm stupid. This is incredible.

Hopefully the jar has some kind of id to identify who leaked it, and ban the people who used it.

I think it was done on purpose to generate more publicity, honestly.

I actually thought it was a pre-release, not leaked.

Unfortunately I cannot confirm any identification methods in use or that are in place.

Incorrect. The release was kept private in the separate groups in order to let certain users test for bugs and for others to update their modifications in time for the official release.
This leak was entirely unintended.

I don't see why they're saying it's leaked when the actual file is ON the Minecraft website, available to anyone who has said link.  It's Mojang's fault for not making it private with a password or something like that.

Agreed, they should've used a password.
