Minecraft PC 1.8.8 Pre-release now available, fixes bugs with Realms

Minecraft 1.8 (and it's minor updates) has been the latest version of Minecraft for almost a year now. Minecraft 1.8.8 is the latest Minecraft update, and it's coming very soon. Mojang made a Pre-release for 1.8.8 available earlier today, downloadable from the Minecraft launcher.

The update's only major features are improvements to Minecraft Realms, Mojang's server-hosting service built into Minecraft. The owner of a Realm server can now set a server-wide resource pack (seen above), but at the moment this is limited to resource packs uploaded by Mojang. Uploading your own resource pack is currently not supported. And just as every other minor update, it includes a number of buges related to fixing crashes and exploits.

If you're feeling brave, you can download the Pre-release from the Minecraft launcher. Mojang reported they intend to release 1.8.8 tomorrow if no major issues arise. In case you're wondering, multiplayer servers do not have to be updated to work with 1.8.8.
