Update: A ‘b’ snapshot has been released to fix lots of crashes!

The first snapshot of Minecraft 1.8 has arrived! This update will be split into two primary focuses: Survival gameplay & improvements, and new fancy abilities for adventure maps! We’ve done a whole bunch of optimizing for both the client and server (with more to come!) and lots more work towards the Plugin API in the background. As this is the very first snapshot of 1.8, do remember to backup your worlds before trying it!

Big survival changes:
  • 3 new stone types!
  • Major Enchanting & Repairing changes!
  • Mossy stone bricks recipe!
  • Updated Villager trading!
  • Doors stack!
  • Slime blocks!
  • Lots of other tweaks, changes, bug fixes and secret features!


Big Adventure Map changes:
  • Adventure Mode no longer lets you place/destroy blocks.
  • But that can change!
  • Added Entity Selectors! Use @e in certain commands to target entities. You can limit it with [type=Chicken] or [type=!Skeleton]
  • Added a /blockdata command!
  • Added ‘Lock’ (String) NBT tag on most containers.
  • Added an optional entity parameter to /kill (try: /kill @e[type=!Player]
  • Added optional arguments to /clear for max item count (use 0 to not actually delete anything) & NBT data
  • Lots of other tweaks, changes, bug fixes and secret features!


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.

Correct me if I'm wrong... but did you copy and paste from somewhere?

I did copy and paste from Mojang.com, mainly because it would sound better coming straight from them. And I wanted this to be as informative as possible.

But then... you didn't make it... so that's against the rules...

Oh, well, I just wanted to let people know it was out, that was really my only purpose for this, but if it is against the rules, than please go tell a moderator to take it down.
