Protocol version


1.8.8[2][1] is an update to Minecraft that was released on July 27, 2015 to mainly fix security bugs. 1.8.8 is compatible with servers running 1.8 – 1.8.7.[1] While it was not the last update to 1.8, it was the last one before the snapshots of 1.9 started.


  • Added the minigame Splatter by SethBling to Realms.[3]
    • SethBling had originally named the map Splatoon after the Wii U game, but it was renamed by Marc for copyright reasons.[4]
  • Realm-wide resource packs for custom maps and minigames


  • Only up to 16 layers are rendered now.
Resource packs
  • Now display an error if the pack version number is not 1.
    • Resource packs that do not match the version now require user acknowledgment to use.
      • Resource packs that were selected in an different version are unselected automatically.
