If you wish to test the Minecraft 1.8 pre-release with other players, we have created a pre-release test server, just point your client to:
Please be aware this is a pre-release test server, as such the main purpose is to examine the performance impact on our hardware of the new 1.8 Minecraft server, if you can not connect it is because the server probably crashed, enjoy!
Minecraft was updated to 1.7.3 the following are from the change log for this update, it was just a bug fix release.
– Corrected a block duplication bug when using pistons.
– Corrected a redstone torch duplication bug when using pistons.
– Corrected a client crash when placing a sign in front of the piston, powering the piston and then removing the block beneath the sign.
– Ice blocks are now pushed without causing water streams breaking everything.
– Booster rails are no longer being powered magically without a power source .
– Pistons connected to the end of a piston transistor via redstone are now properly closed when the power goes out.
– Doors no longer create purple particles.
– Hacking clients can no longer edit texts of placed signs in multiplayer .
– Changed so that paintings pushed by pistons will pop off.
We have updated Minecraft Server to the latest version that was released on Friday by Mojang the server is now running version 1.7.3, this update was supposed to correct a number of piston bugs and it appears to have fixed some, but not all. We still experience read timeout errors under certain situations, after investigating the logs it still shows pistons are the cause of the crashes, so steps have been taken again to stop the use of them in game until all issues are resolved and the server is stable with them enabled. Just for players interest I have included part of the crash log below.

Hey guys, just a short update on the current look of things. Minecraft Server has been updated to version 1.6.5, but we are on a temporary map until Notch fixes more bugs and until a RECOMMENDED Bukkit Build is out. Currently, something in Notch’s coding or the server files is causing the server to be highly unstable, so just hang tight and enjoy the weekend while everything gets sorted out =) We will be back to our regularly scheduled programming in no time!
