It's that time again - Snapshot time! What goodies lie in this week's test client? Mojang had this to say about the 12w49a Snapshot:
“What’s this? This doesn’t sound like a redstone update at all!”, you say. “Indeed,” we say. Thing is, we* suddenly decided we wanted to make sure that you have fireworks for New Year’s Eve, so we’re working in several parallel branches of the code now. One is for the 1.5 “Redstone Update,” and one is now for a 1.4.6 patch update. This update will be out before Christmas, and 1.5 will wait until January (or possibly February).
*Send complaints to jeb_
Added fireworks (sound effects will come soon)
Added enchanted books for enchanting items
Plenty of bugs addressed!
Wait a minute - enchanting books?! What the heck are those? As it turns out, Dinnerbone had some pretty awesome plans for the anvil when it first came out, and they included, among other things, the inclusion of sweet enchantment books!

As always, get your Snapshot downloads from the links below! Be sure to report any bugs you find at the official bug tracker, and enjoy this delightful addition to your end-of-year Minecraft festivities!
Fireworks FTW! I'm guessing dye + TNT or something. This will be great for adventure maps. Fireworks explode once you win.
Also, I love the idea for enchanted books. That way you can finally customize your enchantments. Of course, it will cost you a bit to use the Anvil, but I think it's a good balance.
so what exactly are the bugs they fixed, and what bugs are still in? like is the flickering minecarts still there and is the fps still lower compared to 1.4.2. Im still in 1.4.2 because of those 2 particular bugs in general
Woooooooooot. And dinnerbone said no snapshot this week. HA!!!

Has anyone figured out what the Firework Star does? I'm messing with it right now. It could be possible that it doesn't do anything until next update.
What ive found out it, if you place 1 paper and 1 gunpower in a crafting table, then add 1 firework star, you will get an rocket
with "Flight Duration: 1" and it does goes higher then a normal rocket.
But beside that, I havent found out anything yet.
No special effects/colours yet.
When i made a normal rocket (1 paper + 1 gunpower) and place it in the center of an crafting table,
then place a yellow dye above it, and then 1 gunpower below the rocket, you will get
Firework Star with a yellow color in it, also it says "Small Ball" and 'Yellow'.
