Just before I set up a build job in Jenkins to build FE for 1.8 and now we have first EXPERIMENTAL builds available for you to play around it. We do not recommend to use these builds for 1.8 on any bigger public server yet because we could not test much of it yet.
As always you can get these builds on the downloads page!
The following stuff still needs to be done for a proper 1.8 release
- Mixins patches
- Compatibility with Sponge
- Integration for vanilla worldborder
