No other details are known about when this new sky dimension will make its way to Minecraft, but check out the screenshots below.

Improved Forum System
We've moved the forum to an updated version of Invision Power Board, one of the top forum solutions in the world. The forum is also integrated with Curse Auth, allowing you to log in to Minecraft forum with a Curse.com account. This will enable you to use a single login for most websites Curse offers.
Part of moving to Invision Power Board was also to make moderating the forums easier for our moderation team. The IPB moderation system is streamlined over other forum software, allowing quick and easy moderating of topics -- whether a single topic or mass moderation.
