UPDATE! Pocket Edition: 0.9.3 Submitted, Fixes

 

UPDATE!

Pocket Edition 0.9.2 introduced a number of bugs, which prompted Mojang to submit 0.9.3 hot on its heels! Included on the fix list:

- fixed several crashes that prevented from playing in multiplayer
- fixed a nasty bug that on death might hang the game and/or spawn you really up in the sky
- on Android, you can get more than 3 levels of view distance again
- the game now handles when a world is corrupted and not repairable showing an error screen
- Creepers don’t spam weird sounds anymore
- mobs won’t spawn anymore in peaceful, and existing ones will be removed
- correctly despawning entities on clients
- fixed soft shading on wool tiles
- possibly fixed other lock-ups and crashes

________________________________

Pocket Edition recently saw a seriously awesome update, 0.9.0! Having already been hard at work on 0.9.1, Mojang opted to skip past that version (since it hasn't been released yet anyway), to include a massive list of fixes and improvements before it goes live! Keep in mind, 0.9.2 is not yet public, but should be available in the very near future.

So, what was fixed in this upcoming version?
