We have released a new version of Minecraft, 1.8.8, to improve some functionality of Realms and fix some reported bugs & crashes.
This version is fully compatible with all previous Minecraft 1.8 versions, but it is still highly recommend to update to Minecraft 1.8.8 as soon as possible for both players and servers.
