Hooray! I'm very happy, and surprised. I thought there would still be a few more snapshots still, with a pre-release on Thursday. Been waiting patiently for a while now, and it was worth it in the end. :D

Wait, what/who is Grum? I haven't played any snapshots, and all I can find on the wiki is a guy nicknamed grum.

I'm glad the pre-release is finally here, but they still didn't make droppers play jukeboxes... I really hope they add that before the official release on July 1.

This is only for PC right...bummer as I don't have Minecraft for the PC but for Xbox. That sucks, I want horses. >.< Why must PC get the good stuff?! Bleh...

Newbie here, what does pre-release mean? Can some people get it or does everyone have to wait until July 1st to get the update?



Posted 25 June 2013 - 03:12 PM

Those updates are coming quite rapidly lately, but I like that, although that means to restart my server over and over, but hey, at least we got bugs fixed and get new awesome features.

Btw: Is it just me or is there something wrong with the lighting in the Pre-Release? I am not sure, so I rather ask.

added grum most likely refers to the mojang member Erik "grum" Broes, a dutch coder who is working on the Snapshots, he has a Elmo skin and has been hidden in all snapshot pictures, and in this image he is hidden behind the fence.
