So far, the Mojang team planned these for 1.6 is as follows:
  • Support for Java 5 and PowerPC users will be dropped. (If you still use PowerPC or Java 5, there will be a warning on the menu.
  • Launcher updates: New password storing system, Increases performance, Allows LWJGL to be updated, fixing many launcher bugs, Supports Multiple Versions, Self Updatable, More user friendly.
  • New mobs : Horses, Donkeys
  • A major step toward the Plugin API.
  • Regional difficulty: The longer you spend in one area, the harder it gets.
  • Day/Night Cycles Update: There will be seasons in the game. During the winter season, there will be shorter day/night cycles.
  • New blocks: Hay Bales, carpets, Block of Coal, Hardened Clay
  • Horse updates: Horse Armor, Horse Saddle (will be deleted later, the same saddles [the one in the dungeons] will be used for both pigs and horses), Baby Horses (can be grown with apple, golden apple and wheat), Has various amount of health, Ridable movement controls (hold spacebar to increase jumping speed, release it to jump. Use movement keys to steer. Maximum jump height and movement speed differ between horses), Can be bred using wheat, drops leather when killed. Adjustments to horses makes them more practical later in the game
  • Donkey updates: Like horses, they can be rided, only, they can carry a chest on their back, meaning they are like Minecart with Chests
  • Riding mounts Update: You can only now dismount using sneak key (LSHIFT)
  • Respiration Improvement: Now helps see underwater!
  • Mob Difficulty: Regional Difficulty (mentioned above) and Scales with Difficulty
  • New items: Leashes (Now you can tie mobs in the fences! [note: bats and villagers are not included with leashes and mobs that despawn, still despawn in the leashes].), Name Tags
  • Creative Mode Updates: Added extra tooltip info in the search tab of the creative inventory, which shows that which the block or item where that item belongs to (category)
  • Mob Updates: Zombies now have a chance to spawn additional zombies
  • Comparators: Now gives out a signal on Cauldrons and End Portal Blocks
  • Biome Updates: Deserts no longer spawn water lakes (although they can be found in the edge of the desert)
  • Nether Updates: Nether Fortress finally spawn chest
ESTIMATED RELEASE DATE: Late May 2013
(NOTE: This is only an estimated release date, only the exact date is unknown)

Mojang finally released snapshots for 1.6, this is the list of snapshots:

13w16a - April 18, 2013
13w16b - April 23, 2013
13w17a - April 25, 2013

We don't have Minecraft Realms, so nothing major there.
I need a new sig...

I don't care. When I saw this I thought "Ooh, maybe someone has come across some info that I've missed, or is so new I've not had a chance." Instead you've told us nothing, NOTHING that we didn't know already.

Also... don't forget the "I hope" on the end of Jeb's tweet.

A double resolution texture pack that stays faithful to the original Minecraft textures.

So, in Mojang time, we can expect this in early June, perhaps?

It'll still be out before half-life three.
Humanity is the creation of Logic and Emotion, Calculation and Imagination, Cold Analysis and Blind Faith. This is why I believe it is a strange Human that would prize one while shunning the other. For a calculator can do math just as well as you, but a calculator can not use math to make the world a better place.

GENERATION 26: The first time you see this, copy it into your sig on any forum and add 1 to the generation. Social experiment.

Minecraft on PC (and mac and linux\\) reaches 10 mil. sales, Mojang gave a hint for the new mob, Horses for the next update! :)

My girlfriend has gotten me into this show called River Monsters, and it's made me think: There's a LOT that could be done to make water and fishing FUN™.

EDIT: Oooo... I'm the first voter? Voted fish, of course. I'd like a few different kinds of fish, but if I had to choose one (and maybe I'm biased because it was something I liked to catch in the game Animal Crossing, and always kept a tank with one in my house), it'd be an arapaima. I just feel like it'd "suit" Minecraft, in a way.

Maybe that picture foretells the re-addition of human mobs, improved?

What it says- coming out in late May
What Mojang means- probably coming out in late May but dont expect it until mid June, or on second thought July sounds like a  good month for an update!
Me- FUUUUUUUUU!

So, what the heck is this Regional difficulty!!!??? The games already hard as it is, and now they are actually forcing us to leave our bases that we worked hard on when it gets too difficult!? I hated rapid fire skeletons and radar-telepathy zombies but this is rediculus

For me its still too easy... Anyways the mobs wont get stronger or get more health. It only makes mobs with armor and stuff more common the longer you stay in one area.
