Minecraft 1.8 update leaks, is “sanctioned” for use

A version of the latest update to world-build ‘em up Minecraft, which adds a wealth of new features, has been publicly leaked. The pre-release build of the update has been “sanctioned by [creator] Mojang” according to Minecraft forum sectional moderator Opeth. The build is available, via one of Opeth’s posts, for download, however: “Any user found distributing the .jar or links to it will be dealt with and have posts removed,” asserts the post. “The links above should be used.”
