      ... Don't open a 1.8 world in 1.7 unless you have a backup ...

      Since you ask: 1.7 doesn't know how to handle 1.8 saves, but tries its best not to crash. This means it ignores data, which is lost forever.


      14w03a came up today and I noticed the transparancy bug with glass panes, so I switched back to 14w02c to verify that was working correctly there. All items everywhere vanished. Everything in my inventory, equipped gear, even everything in chests and furnaces are gone. Switching back to 14w03a did not bring it back.
