    Tough tie between a new animal (chickens, I want to actually not have to ration off arrows for emergencies, dammit) and boats. Mini maps coming at a close second.

    Pretty sure if you delete the Infdev folder a new one will be downloaded next time you visit the page.

    Old.

    Also you can use diamond picks too.

    If you want to find huge veins the best way is to create your own mines, rather than explore caves. Caves are generated after ores and cut right through them, so any vein you find in a cave is almost always going to be smaller than it could have been. Though of course caves make finding veins in the first place much easier...

    Lava that flows over tracks creates a new lava spring. You might want to take advantage of this now, it's likely to get fixed fairly quickly!

    well no, he just took out the method that lets you keep the lava spring, now you have to sacrifice a bucket of lava onto a water spring. fortunately I turned a large amount of ocean into obsidian before the update that I can now mine at my leisure :P . I also heard that dropping lava on tracks turns it into a spring now so easy surface lava is now available also.

    Yeah, it's kind of slow but if you let lava flow onto tracks it'll turn into a whole new spring. I've already started a small obsidian factory using this method. :D

    Lava passing over rails creates a lava spring?

    So there still is a way to clone lava! :D

    I made huge towers out of solid gold and played around with the awesome new lighting and torches, right after starting a new game.

    This was back when torches had just been added and it wasn't really survival mode yet.

    If it's not a huge pit you could create a ramp out of tracks. Notch will probably make them pickup-able soon, so if it looks like building a ramp would take forever you can just leave it there for the moment.

    My sister is obsessed with pigs, film a video of you beating them with a stick so I can annoy my sister.

    Why not just burn them? Hell, use lava if you can find it.

    Possibly that sand/gravel falling is animated now, rather than instantly dropping to the ground.

    Can you ride it down cliffs or something?

    Nope, you'll fall right through falling sand. :P Died while attempting to.

    Anyways, I thought that the small secret was the rainbow sparkles surrounding the white deathpuff that mobs make, but I guess there's the sand change too...

    Is it just me or is obsidian harder to create now? Before I could just place a lava spring on the shore, wait, then pick up the spring and after the lava vanished there's be obsidian, but that seems to produce cobblestone now. :c

    Well that's really odd. I killed three sheep with flames and two with a stone sword and they emmited colored particles. Hold on, I'll go test it again.

    Edit: Yup, small, red, blue, and green dots on the old white particles. The particles are still mainly white, but have small, one pixel (well, Minecraft pixel anyways) colored dots on them.

    Oh hey, mobs have weird rainbow sparkles when they die in addition to that white puff. Huh.

    Oh hey, you can set minecarts on fire. They don't seem to extinguish unless they touch water. Too bad they don't provide light.
