Minecraft Snapshot Week 30 12w30b Update Released Download Link

Well hello, Me again… The guy that just copy and pastes the info from the Mojang Blog 😛

Well your hear now.. May as-well read on…

Snapshot 12w30b (Week 30)

jeb_: As you know, the release date for Minecraft 1.3 is August 1, but we’ll release snapshots and a pre-release this week to prepare

We’re getting really close to the 1.3 release now, and need to check that everything runs as expected. The plan is to release one or two snapshots, and then the 1.3 pre-release by Wednesday or Thursday. The pre-release is intended to be identical to the official release next week, in order to give modmakers and server admins a week’s head start. That’s why we need to do a snapshot first, since we can’t do changes to the update after the pre-release is out.

This snapshot consists of all the bugfixes that Nathan (@dinnerbone) and Eric (@_grum) have been working on the last two weeks. Get it here:

If you haven’t downloaded Minecraft you can grab it here: www.minecraft.net/download

Please note that the snapshot jar doesn’t need to be extracted or unpacked in any way, you simply replace the minecraft.jar file that is located in the “.minecraft/bin” folder.

UPDATE: There was a bug that prevented people from interacting with blocks (right-clicking) which has been fixed. We also fixed a null pointer exception. The links above have been updated to point to the new version (12w30b).
