After weeks of hard testing, fixing, re-testing, and fixing even more, the 1.5 Pre-Release is now ready for testing! We are in the final stretch for 1.5, and while it has taken a little longer than many expected, there is a silver lining! Tons of features were added for the Redstone Update, and a landslide of bugs were swept away, to make sure the final release was as smooth and easy as possible.
Ready to see a feature list this time, instead of just bug fixes? Here you go!

Yep he's hard to remove. No but seriously, I'm still waiting on the update where they make him real. They could make him the FINAL boss of the game, and the end credits (after beating him) will show some other Steve coming to fight you.
