Minecraft 1.8 gets its first major snapshot; updated to 14w02c today


Yesterday, Mojang released the first snapshot of Minecraft 1.8. Labeled "14w02," the snapshot was split into two primary focuses: survival gameplay and improvements, and new abilities for adventure maps. It also included bunch of optimizing for both the client and server, as well as the Plugin API. As per usual, though, the snapshot has received a few updates since its original release and Mojang just now has released snapshot "14w02c."
