It's that time again - Snapshot time! What goodies lie in this week's test client? Mojang had this to say about the 12w49a Snapshot:
“What’s this? This doesn’t sound like a redstone update at all!”, you say. “Indeed,” we say. Thing is, we* suddenly decided we wanted to make sure that you have fireworks for New Year’s Eve, so we’re working in several parallel branches of the code now. One is for the 1.5 “Redstone Update,” and one is now for a 1.4.6 patch update. This update will be out before Christmas, and 1.5 will wait until January (or possibly February).
*Send complaints to jeb_
Added fireworks (sound effects will come soon)
Added enchanted books for enchanting items
Plenty of bugs addressed!
Wait a minute - enchanting books?! What the heck are those? As it turns out, Dinnerbone had some pretty awesome plans for the anvil when it first came out, and they included, among other things, the inclusion of sweet enchantment books!
Pictured: sweet enchantment books
As always, get your Snapshot downloads from the links below! Be sure to report any bugs you find at the official bug tracker, and enjoy this delightful addition to your end-of-year Minecraft festivities!
Fireworks FTW! I'm guessing dye + TNT or something. This will be great for adventure maps. Fireworks explode once you win.
Also, I love the idea for enchanted books. That way you can finally customize your enchantments. Of course, it will cost you a bit to use the Anvil, but I think it's a good balance.
Woooooooooot. And dinnerbone said no snapshot this week. HA!!!

Enjoy raiding and pvp in highly customizable and well organized groups, but hate the setup of Factions? Then check out my upcoming server containing multiple custom plugins and opearting on Minecraft version 1.8!
Well it's pretty obvious Mojang either doesn't care one bit about their modding community or they're so disconnected from the modding community it's almost the same thing.. Did there really need to be another update for 3 bloody items??? Unless this bug-fix list is big.. WHY? You couldn't have folded these three items into 1.5???
Whatever... I wouldn't want to be around mod makers with this news.
