So before 1.0 I was reading the wiki about updates and it said that notch was working on duel wielding weapons and other things. This did not come in 1.0 and I was looking forward to it.
Did it ever say he was going to implement it?
Also, the Wiki isn't always correct.
Also also, cool updates like this seem to be pushed back until they're forgotten/abandoned (we never got Adventure mode either!).
