Want to try Minecraft 1.8 Now?

Download Minecraft 1.8 Pre Release
Notch
and Jeb have just announced the Minecraft 1.8 pre-release .jar can now be downloaded for public testing. They have made clear this is not the final release code version of Minecraft 1.8 and I can vouch for the fact this is buggy. However it does show many of the anticipated new features to be present in the official release. Please also note this will only work if you have purchased Minecraft.
