1.2.5 Prepped as Snapshot First

Modders are getting some advance warning in regards to the upcoming 1.2.5 update. Jeb stated today that the 1.2.5 update is being prepared soon, but will be released as a snapshot first, to give modders some time to get their projects ready, as well as allowing for Bukkit updates to be released simultaneously. A proper Mod API is on the way for the next major update, but Mojang is definitely trying to make sure the modding community stays in the loop while they get it ready. While there was no set date for 1.2.5's availability, it would seem to be well on its way, and expected in the very near future, likely by next week.

Community-made mods are a huge draw for Minecraft, as they allow for a broad range of customization for the sandbox game, covering the spectrum from subtle to "total overhaul"-scale projects. Mojang is definitely making strides to make the modding process easier on programmers and players alike, and while we cannot yet reveal the specifics on the API, we can say that it's definitely something to be excited about. Keep an eye out for updates!

Yeah. I wish they would make it so there will be no need for mod updates each minecraft update. That would be just awesome :D
Can't wait to see what's new in 1.2.5, I hope they fixed the seed issue.

great to hear the modding API is almost ready. It should make it a lot easier to play with mods online. There's only so much you can do with plugins.

Minecraft updates are coming out so fast, mod developers are unable to keep up with the pace.
We're just now starting to see mods being updated for 1.2.4, and now 1.2.5 is right around the corner.
It wouldn't be so bad if the MC updates didn't break all the existing mods.

How about Mojang takes a little more time and doesn't update again until that mod API is ready?

I am glad they are giving us ample warning this time. I had no idea that 1.2.4 was coming out until I saw the "Would you like to update?" screen when logging in last week. That weekend was spent waiting for Minimap and John Smith to upgrade. Now everyone should have time to be prepared. I guess it is a learning process for Mojang as much as it is for the gamers. but in a way that is a big part of the fun.
I'm the one who knocks.

Wasn't Mojang supposed to release the modding API back in beta? I can't remember where I read that but I distinctly remember them talking about it. Oh well, it's here now ^_^

I'm incredibly happy to see them warning us this time... and at least their finally starting to get that API ready.

Here's an idea though... instead of doing a half-a** job like some of the other updates, how about you get it FULLY 100% working? No one wants a half done API or features... Please, just do it all the first time and save the trouble.

To those about to try and hate, no, I'm not trying to be mean to all the people at Mojang. Don't start saying "Oh well how about you do it?", trust me, if I knew how then I would do it. I would just like to see better updates; fixes and that API - not new features.

Quote my post to make sure I see it.
