Minecraft 1.2 Officially Released (1.2.3)

Hello,  How are you all? I’m ok thanks.. Been a busy week this one.

Well… What are we here for again? Ah yes.. Minecraft 1.2!

Jeb tweeted about the release of 1.2 earlier this week.

jeb_: The final step for 1.2 is to update lwjgl, but I get AccessControlExceptions when playing in browser =( Google only says “sign the jar”

jeb_: I need to get 1.2 out today, so I’m giving up on the new lwjgl stuff. I’ll try again for 1.3…

Minecraft 1.1 Released

Hello again.. Well we have a ‘proper’ release of Minecraft for you today (well last Thursday)

Jeb_: Was going to upload Minecraft 1.1, but first Bohemian Rhapsody singalong

Jeb tweeted the above along with this link;

Below is a list of some of the added features:

– Bow Enchantments
– Golden Apple recipe
– New language translations.
– Slightly smoothed color transitions between biomes
– Reduced brewing time to 20 seconds
– Added spawn eggs to creative (the colors of the eggs even look like the mobs)
– Added world type options (currently only super-flat and default)
– Removed collision box from ladders
– Sheep eat grass and regain their wool

Plus many bug fixes!

I know a lot of these features are already available in the Snapshots but it will be good to see them in an ‘Official Release’

The ability to spawn mobs is a really nice feature..
