I don't know.... maybe because this IS a related topic? Why, you ask? Well, it's very simple: we were promised API for 1.3. That didn't happen. We were promised API for 1.4. That didn't happen; in fact, the truth of the matter is that if they're still asking people what it should be and how it should be done, then it hasn't even started to happen. Furthermore, the original gripe was about Mojang once again leaving Bukkit high and dry on the dev. build process, which means that it's going to be days before the Bukkit team has a stable release for servers. You know, those things to which you connect when you are wasting other people's time in places other than the forums? And that makes it an update topic.
Mojang has not "promised" any kind of firm deadline for the mod API. They have set a goal a couple of times, and failed to meet that goal. Furthermore, Mojang is under no obligation whatsoever to continue updating Minecraft. It is, for all intents and purposes, a complete game.
As far as Bukkit is concerned, I seem to recall a major update to Minecraft near the beginning of this year, after which it took the Bukkit team almost a whole month to update. Delays are commonplace, particularly in the modding department. We can b*tch about it, or we can play vanilla MC.
haea problem i have installed the new version obviously and is really good and i have installed the new version of MCpatcher to get my texture pack working (Dokucraft light) and its working but some of the new items appear blank in the inventory for example the anvil is blank the new foods are blank (by the way if i hove my mouse hwere they should be it comes up with the name and not the item pic) and when i place it it comes out blank someone help plzzzzzzz
It sounds like your texture pack is outdated. Maybe the developer hasn't included the new item textures yet?
EDIT: Look for the version number in the texture pack title, or forum thread.. If it doesn't say 1.4 or 1.4.2 there may not be an up-to-date version yet.
Could you please work more at the scariness in the game? The first time Notch talked about Enderman, I thought it would be so scary you wouldn't get out of the house, but it isn't. Please make night scarier. That's my Christmas wish.
This. They made game even less scary with brighter nights in 1.8.
I've started a survival no structure world with the goal of having a thriving village. This update is pretty slick with how you can get villagers in no structure worlds. Also the lack of mine shafts makes the underground areas a little more old school like with less clutter and more places to dig.
I.4.2 is the worst update to ever come out, it is even worse then call of duty. The sounds sound like complete trash. My point is Jeb has completely ruined the game of minecraft. Have a nice day playing the bullcrap update.
I didn't know it was possible, but Minecraft runs even worse than it did before just playing 1.4 snapshots. In a period of a few months I've gone from having 70+fps to almost nothing. Every single snapshot or addition has in sequence destroyed my gameplay experience. It take s almost 2 seconds to place a block and have it appear on the lowest possible settings. Before you release a single other update, perhaps you should work on optimizing performance all around... again.
