    Finally it is released!

    Snipped the link since it's out in the launcher!

    Well Garry did say it was fine and since this is slightly different from the 2 pre-releases, it deserves its own thread. If we only wanted one thread we wouldn't have a sub-forum.

    They haven't said that yet, but I bet there will be a changelist in the launcher when mc.net is up again.

    Something to do with scrolling?

    Just downloaded the jar in the first post. And decided to create a new world using the seed "myfirstv1.8experience"

    It spawned me on an island in the middle of nowhere with a single tree... Not much of a good experience.

    I'm not updating till all my favourite mods get updated.

    After ages of getting bored with 1.7.3 i added a load of mods, which made the game more interesting.

    Now I don't want to update, kind of ironic in a way.

    I'm just reall waiting for TooManyItems, since the game doesn't allow you to switch maps from creative to survival, and the pre release one doesn't work with the proper 1.8 release.

    Minecraft.net is online, 1.8 has been officially released!

    Yeah, I was skeptical about this thing first, but now that the actual thing is out, well, this is great.
