Minecraft 1.8 Update Leaks

Remember those Minecraft Adventure Update trailers? That update isn’t due for release just yet, but it looks like it has leaked out from one of the testing groups. The folks at Mojang decided to make use of the leak, and have authorized the leaked version for bugtesting.

In this thread on the Minecraft forums, you’ll find links to download the authorized build, as well as instructions on how to report any bugs that you may find while playing.

Of course, folks in forum think that this ‘leak’ may have been intentional. They point to this tweet by Notch, Minecraft’s creator, as evidence of the intentional nature of the leak:

Regardless of how it happened, you can grab the 1.8 update for Minecraft simply by visiting this forum thread.
