Back in December, Minecraft Pocket Edition passed the 5 million mark on sales - not even counting the crazy-high figures for the holidays themselves - and an update has been in the works for a first-quarter release. So, what's in store for 0.5.1? Jeb tweeted yesterday that the sand and gravel blocks in Pocket Edition will soon succumb to the effects of gravity, as it has on PC for some time. Additionally, Pocket Edition will be seeing slabs, stairs, even new clouds on the horizon (pun totally intended).

So what of certain land generation features, like caves? They aren't coming any time soon, unfortunately, primarily owing to performance issues on handheld devices. While they are not planned in the coming days, it has not yet been ruled out that caves may make an appearance in the future. 0.5.1 is expected to hit handhelds everywhere by sometime late January, or possibly early February. Who knows what else lies in store between now and then? We will keep you appraised!
But Jeb still needs to re-code the follies of DinnerBone, like that hideous Nether portal and whatnot.
You do know Notch made the original netherportal design right?
Most of the time
Maybe whoever wrote this doesn't speak English as a first language. This is the Internet. Where people from all countries go to share and find information. They even come from countries where the majority of people don't speak English.
This is the pocket Edition version. Either you have no clue what I am talking about, or your stupidity is showing.
Notch did not create the Nether for the pocket edition, it is completely different in comparison to the PC. In PE, it's a block that you place that generates a small obsidian square, in which you get random items, and fight Zombie Pigmen.
And if you didn't know, Notch is no longer working on Minecraft.
You only use stairs in Creative? What kind of player are you?
haha figured you knew that.
