PE/Win10: The Friendly Update!



The Friendly Update is here!


Okay, I lied: the Friendly Update - 0.15 for Pocket/Windows 10 Edition - is not, in fact, out yet. However, it is coming soon, and has a host of goodies to look forward to!


As the video above shows, some of the new things are obvious (pistons, especially). However, there is a special emphasis on the "friendly" part of the update's name...what could that mean? We may never know!


Right, I lied again. Here's a list of the upcoming changes!
