One day, Dinnerbone wrote some really important information that changed the fate of humanity, and nobody knew it because nobody reads this text anyway, except the guy referencing it for updates. Oh, sorry, what was that? Snapshot? Oh right yes of course! Here we go:

NOTABLE ADDITIONS FOR SURVIVAL:

  • Book copying mechanics has been altered to differentiate the original & copies of books
  • Activator rails can eject entities from Minecarts

NOTABLE ADDITIONS FOR MAPMAKERS:
  • Added a spectator gamemode (/gamemode spectator). Not 100% finished.
  • Spectators cannot be seen by anybody but other spectators
  • Spectators can view inventories/etc, but not modify them
  • Spectators can go through any entity or block without interfering with it
  • Spectators can click on entities to take their camera
  • Spectators cannot use items, place blocks, destroy blocks or interact with blocks in any way
  • Spectators are only slightly buggy maybe sometimes

Please report any and all bugs you find in Minecraft to bugs.mojang.com. If nobody reports a bug, we can’t fix it!

The 1.7.3 Pre-Release is here! YAY!

  • Added integrated Twitch broadcasting! See below for details.
  • Fixed render distances above 8 (may not work in multiplayer, servers have their own view distance they limit you to)
  • Many bug fixes and optimizations!

Mojang's very own Dinnerbone had the following to say about 1.7.3:

Dinnerbone said:

At Minecon we announced our new partnership with Twitch to bring one-click broadcasting to Minecraft. It has been in the recent snapshots, and proven to be very stable and ready to go live.

Before you can start streaming, you will need to visit your Mojang account settings and link a Twitch account to your Mojang account. Then in the game you may check the quality settings in Options -> Broadcast Options, or just go ahead and start broadcasting at any time by hitting F6. This key can be configured in the Controls options.

This is only supported on Windows (Vista and higher) and Mac OS X Lion (10.7) and higher. If you cannot start broadcasting ingame for any reason, the game will tell you why and possibly how to fix it.

To get pre-releases, open your launcher and press the “New Profile” button. Call it “snapshots” and check the box saying “Enable experimental development snapshots” and save. To switch to the normal version, you can select it in the dropdown at the bottom left corner of the launcher.

One-button livestreaming? Bugfixes? Awesome!

This week's Snapshot brings an exciting new feature: the ability to live-stream your game on Twitch.tv with one click! How does it work?

Before you can start streaming, you will need to visit your Mojang account settings and link a Twitch account to your Mojang account. Then, while in the game, you may check the quality settings in Options -> Broadcast Options, or just go ahead and start broadcasting at any time by hitting F6. This key can be configured in the Controls options.

Currently, the livestreaming feature is only supported on Windows (XP and higher) and Mac OS X Lion (10.7) and higher. If you cannot start broadcasting in-game, go to the options screen and it should say why it isn't working.

To get snapshots, open your launcher and press the “New Profile” button. Call it “snapshots” and check the box saying “Enable experimental development snapshots” and save. To switch to the normal version, you can select it in the dropdown at the bottom left corner of the launcher.

This is a really awesome feature, and I will be demonstrating it on my Twitch page throughout the day*! Feel free to drop by, see how it works, and ask questions.

The 0.7.2 update for Minecraft - Pocket Edition is going live, even as we speak! The change-log isn't as bulky as they often are; however, the current design focus for MCPE seems to suggest a heavy leaning towards improving performance, and player-assisting enhancements that are specific to mobile platforms. In addition, Mojang is hard at work getting Realms in order for MCPE, so that players can share in their awesome portable builds, no matter where they are!

ADDITIONS:
  • Nametags for multiplayer
  • Player List
  • Chat will be easier to use

BUG FIXES:
  • Loading a world with a dot after the name now resolved
