Jeb and Jon have released this week's snapshot, 12w08a. This week's changes are as follows:

  • Added a defense mob to villages
  • Added up-side-down stairs
  • Many changes to the world and lighting system
Client: download here
Server: download here

Need help using a snapshot? Badprenup has you covered!

1. Download the new snapshot minecraft.jar
2. Navigate to your .minecraft folder (On windows, you can find it by searching for %appdata%)
3. Put the new jar file in the bin folder (OPTIONAL: Back up your old jar file).
4. Open Minecraft via the launcher, how you normally would.

Let us know what you find! Here's a screenshot Jon provided of the new mob, the Iron Golem:

Is it just me, or is Minecraft becoming Battlecraft? Yes, it's nice to have something to build against, and almost nobody will tell you that having villages to protect is a bad thing; but I seriously haven't seen much official attention to the actual mining basics of the game.

This was really scary, I was looking around on the forum, got to the homepage twice:
1st time there was no news, then, like 10 minutes later, there was the snapshot!

Agree with that! They're focusing pretty hard on the damn villages, they should release 1.2!
