== Stable (1.14 branch) ==
 
+
<b>1.14.x</b> is the current stable branch. These releases are recommended for most players, as they provide a well-tested and balanced game experience with only occasional bug-fix updates. Each version of this branch is compatible with each other. The online player community for it is also the largest and the add-ons server has a vast selection of content.
== Stable (1.8 branch) ==
 
The stable files are meant to be used as a stable and rather balanced version of the game. Each version of the 1.8 branch is compatible to each other.
 
 
 
Version 1.8.2 is the latest stable version. This version is recommended for most players since the 1.8 online multiplayer community is very large and user-made campaign server has a robust content selection.
