And many more that weren’t on the bug tracker so we couldn’t mark them as fixed! Did I mention please report bugs? Thanks.
To get snapshots, open your launcher and press the “New Profile” button. Call it “snapshots” and check the box saying “Enable experimental development snapshots” and save. To switch to the normal version, you can select it in the dropdown at the bottom left corner of the launcher. Back up your world first or run the game on in a different folder (See the “new profile” dialog).
Snapshots can corrupt your world, please backup and/or run them in a different folder from your main worlds.
Enjoy raiding and pvp in highly customizable and well organized groups, but hate the setup of Factions? Then check out my upcoming server containing multiple custom plugins and opearting on Minecraft version 1.8!
This was a pretty good snapshot. The only thing I think they should work on now is, (I'm not trying to be rude and I have no purpose for Mojang or anyone to hate this comment) To add "Useful mobs". The endermite was a cool edition, but no one really wanted it. It kinda came from no where. Mojang is adding good features for map makers, but they are not looking for what the community really wants. We want new, useful mobs thats purpose isn't just killing us. Maybe in 1.9 or 2.0, They could add a bird or something better than a small, ender silverfish. It cant be so hard for Mojang to add a new mob because mod makers could make a mob in about a day. I do not hate Mojang, infact I am happy with new things they are adding in like new block models. Mojang, if you really want the community to be happy, PLEASE go look on the forums/reddit and you will find something that close to 2,000 people want.

Changed mine cart physics
Minecarts can now go a lot faster
Minecarts can derail at corners if going to fast, as well as refuse to go uphill
No, oh please dear god no! Why would you do this? How many minecart roller coasters do you think this will totally wreck? How will players be able to tell what is "too fast" in order to work around it? This is a bad, bad idea.
The Endermite is a cool idea, but the new minecart physics are horrible. I don't know what they were thinking when they come up with that. Does Mojang not know that minecarts de-railing at corners and bouncing back at hills is bound to break things? It's going to be a massive headache to deal with on worlds where there are large automated rail transportation systems.
Minecarts just lost all usefulness. Why did you think derailing and messed up their physics was a good thing?! Realism in minecraft? No stop it! It's minecraft, the minecarts were fine the way they were. Good job at ruining minecarts fail snapshot
If they want to allow for faster railways, then they need to add a new booster rail track. This change will easily break most of the railstations we have built on our server and some of them are far from simple.
