What version of Drupal 8 are you using? Your Drush and Drupal versions must track closely, so if you are using today's HEAD of Drush 7, you should use today's HEAD of d8. If you are using d8-beta10, you should use Drush 7.0-rc2, and if you are using d8-beta9, you should use Drush 7.0-rc1.


Just tried this with today's HEAD of Drush 7: drush qd dev-d8-test --core=drupal-8.0.x --db-url='mysql://mysqluser@localhost:/devd8test'

Worked great. Adjust db credentials to match your needs, of course.
