Apparently version 1.8.3 of Minecraft was released on February 20 to address a crashing bug. There was no proper announcement for this update. A couple of lines were added to the version 1.8.2 announcement on the Mojang blog, but this meant that there was no corresponding RSS update.
The JDRGaming Minecraft server is now running version 1.8.3. The Minecraft page on this site has been updated with all the latest information.
