    FormallyMyles
    You might have noticed, we're at version 3.0.0. With this update, we've updated to Java 8 and changed quite a few internals. You will need to update ViaBackwards & ViaRewind if you use those.

    Special shout-out to KennyTV which committed the majority of the changes below along with help from Gerrygames, creeper123123321, Astei, kashike, konwboj, Xernium.
