After a long and arduous wait, an alpha build has now been released for karyonix’s Shaders Mod. This means you can now use shaderpacks with Minecraft 1.8

A quick note: the build is in alpha, which means there will be bugs, glitches and errors. Use it at your own risk. Luckily however, karyonix will be updating the mod regularly, and a full release should be out soon.
