If you want to try out the forthcoming Minecraft patch a little earlier than everyone else, this is your chance. You can grab the pre-release .jar file from Mojang's site here and never again have to worry about your torches jumping from wall to wall.

Don't forget that we have our own guide to help players who are trying out snapshots and pre-releases of the game.
