Minecraft 1.8 Leaked – instructions…

So it appears  Minecraft 1.8 has been “leaked” by Jens as a “test release” for the experts.  The release is a presumably beta version of the update.

Notch is fine with the leak but says you should feel a little bad, but to let them know if you find any bugs (paraphasing) via his twitter. And goes on saying they are hosting it on their own server.

 

Anyways, if you want to “test for bugs”…

-Save that to your .minecraft/bin/ folder but backup the original first.

-Launch minecraft

-Play
