    Dear oh dear, looks like Mojang can't keep their file security down!

    Download to your bin folder, backup your old one if you want. It's the version from PAX, so you can fast forward time and such with some keys.

    Leak, it seems. Notch dosn't care too much about it, it's free bug testing for him!

    From what I've been told, Jeb planned this all along. Basically for the bug testing.

    Not disappointing, people on the internet just blew them out of proportion. Like they do with everything.

    Some crazy biome stuff going on. I like the update so far, mineshafts are insane.

    Another new feature I just found that I haven't seen listed anywhere: Rightclicking with a swords allows you to block.

    I tested on a zombie, whilst blocking I took 1 heart of damage, without blocking I took 2!

    EDIT: WastedMeerkat confirmed

    Notch did post a screenshot of that though. so not entirely unexpected.

    Bonemeal makes normal mushrooms grow, this is the only way to get the large mushrooms currently iirc.

    Also undocumented: ChaoCraft is now 1.8 ready http://bit.ly/qTBHX4

    (assuming the white spiders and endermen are Mojang's fault (the spiders work fine on 1.73 so I'm gunna say it's mojang not me)

    spiders work fine in the Pax demo version of 1.8...

    And yea, chests are documented.

    YM, my spiders work fine, so I think it may just be you... Try editing your spider_eyes and enderman_eyes over the default file rather than a new one to fix transparency issues, thats what I've done with mines and they work fine...
