    Hey CubeCrafters!

    This is a quick post to say that we should now be both 1.7 and 1.8 compatible!

    1.8 features are still not available as of now, and will be implemented in the future, as of now this is just compatibility for 1.8 clients to connect.

    So far this has been the fastest update we have ever managed to do, as you probably noticed. Only some servers are experiencing issues, and are being updated to work again as of me writing this. (You will see them under maintenance)

    As for name-changing, when they release it, we highly suggest you DON'T change your name, as it could cause your account to be reset or loose ranks/other issues. We will have to test ourselves to patch any bugs first. So if you change your name, its at your own risk, we bear no responsibility for the loss of but not limited to items/ranks/points/statistics.

    So, have fun playing and looking at that sexy tab list now! :)

    So for you guys as of right now, the release date, blocks in creative that are new to Minecraft (1.8 blocks) except "coarse dirt" cannot be placed. Hopefully in the future this will change. When 1.7 came out, the same thing happened. Be patient and have fun!

    I believe it's somewhere on the Mojang official website.

    This is what mojang said on the website about name changing

    • Username changes will not be available before Minecraft version 1.8. This does not mean that 1.8 is the release date for the username change feature.
    • Changing your username will be free, and limited to a certain number of changes in a given time period.
    • Username changes will only be available to Minecraft profiles that are on a Mojang account (those that log in with their email address). If you still log in with your username, visit account.mojang.com/migrate to update to the newer account format.
    • Minecraft servers now use a player's unique identifying number (UUIDs) to deal with player data. This means that if you have a cape, are a server admin, or are whitelisted or banned on a server, nothing will change.
    • You cannot change your name to an existing username. That would be crazy.
    • Unmodified servers and Minecraft itself will handle most of the transitions to using UUIDs. Custom mods or plugins will need to update to accommodate for these changes.
