Mojang is offering a special treat today - an early Snapshot!  1.4 is due to release next week, and the early Snapshot release allows Mojang more time to get the update as playable and awesome as possible before launch.

Today's Snapshot includes a helping of:
  • Anvil block has been tweaked (it’s cheaper to create, minor visual changes, and you can repair tools using wood/ingots/diamonds)
  • Bats no longer trample crops or trigger pressure plates
  • Redstone repeaters can be “locked” (fixed output) by having a powered repeater connected to its left or right side
  • Updated language files
  • More bugfixes & tweaks!

Grab the Snapshot today, and see 1.4 early - it doesn't include all that 1.4 has to offer, but it comes pretty darn close!

I wish anvils could let you do anything with any level on creative. Imagine adventure maps and servers, how helpful that would be.

Edit: I wish there was a way to combine potion enchants, most likely related to the witches.

I'm not so sure about the lockable repeaters, could be pretty annoying at times.
Other than that I'm pretty exited about 1.4

The anvil should not lose durability if used in creative mode.

I can see much better redstone mechanism designs, specifically t flip-flops, with the lockable redstone repeaters.

Can we use the new "locked repeaters" to create memory cells ?
I can't figure out how this should work ...
