You heard right, it's a double-feature today!  The 1.5.2 Pre-Release, as well as the 13w17a Snapshot are now available for testing!  So how does this work?  You can get these files in one of two ways:

THE EASY WAY

Download the new experimental Minecraft launcher (Click here, and select the launcher for your OS), and select which version of Minecraft you want to play from the dropdown box - no extra installation or effort required!

THE TRADITIONAL WAY

13w17a Client Download

13w17a Server Download

Additionally, you can download the 1.5.2 pre-release by clicking here.

BUGFIXES IN 1.5.2

  • Jukebox audio volume doesn’t decrease
  • SMP: Anvils charge level for nothing when using languages other than English
  • Tamed wolves and cats despawn
  • Endermen are rendered hostile if they take environmental damage
  • Pick-Block and Furnaces
  • Achievement "Hot Topic" Uses Faceless Furnace Icon
  • Using the anvil for free
  • Arrows visually float when shot into a block
  • Improvements to FPS when using high-resolution texture packs
  • Many Realms fixes

CHANGELOG FOR 13W17A

  • Added a new “Hardened Clay” block
  • Added extra tooltip info in the search tab for the creative inventory
  • Made deserts more deserty
  • Zombies made slightly more sociable
  • Bug fixes!

I didnt even know any of those bugs existed in 1.5.2... lol... looks like we gotta wait another 2 weeks for a new craftbukkit build.
Enjoy raiding and pvp in highly customizable and well organized groups, but hate the setup of Factions? Then check out my upcoming server containing multiple custom plugins: http://www.RisingColonies.com/

I am confused by the more sociable zombies.  Does that mean they'll finally accept my invites to my housewarming party?

Finally Damn Jukeboxes  turn off when I tell them too.
At the Same time it was fun listening to music while muting the rest of the backround sounds.
Gee Whiz.

Am I the only one grateful for the wolf/cat bugfix? I have NEVER been able to keep a wolf of multiplayer, due to constant despawning (no, they didn't die). Hopefully this finally fixed it!

It's funny, because I actually have a desert suggestion thread named "Make deserts... you know, more desert-y." and that was one of the suggestions I had. I will henceforth call conspiracy.

You're doing it right, Mojang ! Zombies coming out of their graves is overrated and cliché ! [img]http://static.minecraftforum.net//public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.png[/img]

I tried it with terrible results. I gave my wife my glasses for a second, a creeper showed up and now my wife is pregnant.
Stupid 3D..

I find it a bit annoying because they eventually spam up your game and cause lag.
