  1. Hi gang,

    Normally I don't really keep up with this but some time ago I tried the latest 1.8 snapshot (experimental version) which was 1.8.2.-pre6 and to my surprise most of the lag which I experienced with previous 1.8 versions was gone.

    So I kept a little track of it and what do you know: yesterday they released 1.8.2, the official release, and this is actually playable on my computer. And enjoyable too, provided I don't get blown up by creepers :)

    So if you haven't kept up with 1.8 so far because of the performance issues now might be a good time to give it another try.

    Most important changes (see for a full overview the release wiki page):
    • Mobs no longer bother you in spectator mode.
    • Beacons ignore bedrock above them.
    • Ocelots and squids spawn on a varying y level (also above or below a certain level).
    And obviously a lot of bugfixes.
    shiyvah and M4nic_M1ner like this.
