It's Thursday, and you know what that means: Snapshot time! So, what's on the plate for this week's test client?

  • A new scary decoration block
  • The “secret” from previous snapshots is now spawnable
  • A new mob variant in the Nether
  • Minor changes to the leather dye (the colors will attempt to maintain intensity, and not dilute as much)
  • The “work in progress block” is now called “Beacon
  • Carrot on a stick!
  • And, of course, numerous bug fixes

Ready to try this awesome Snapshot out? Download links are below!

Client: Download

A new mob variant in the Nether? What could it possibly be!
The Minecraft Forum can be described as a "bunch of crazy people all disagreeing with each other"

The skeleton head is 398. Not sure about the rest.
Pigs follow you around with a carrot on a stick. Again not sure about other uses.

I've never tried using a snapshot before and I've stayed on 1.2.5 after hearing of all the problems with 1.3.x
Is it really just as simple as swapping out the .jar files? If this snapshot has problems do I just replace it with my old (stable) 1.2.5 jar and everything will be back to normal?
