Unless there are any emergency things to fix, I won't do any more updates before 1.7. Going to E3 on Saturday. I will be bringing my laptop to do some development, but I won't be able to do much testing.

Unless there are any emergency things to fix, I won't do any more updates before 1.7. Going to E3 on Saturday. I will be bringing my laptop to do some development, but I won't be able to do much testing.

ONWARDS TO THE ADVENTURE UPDATE! *holds up sword, poses dramatically*


  • Changed the material of glowstone from “glass” to “stone”. This means you need a pickaxe to get resources from it
  • Made the recipe sizes for creating cloth blocks and glowstone blocks smaller (2x2 instead of 3x3)
  • Boats falling down into water lose their vertical momentum very fast
  • Fixed destroying a boat spawning the player too low, causing them to sometimes fall through the ground
  • Added a new use for bonemeal
  • Re-introduced unlimited FPS, renamed the option again
  • Made glowstone drop more loot
  • Boats float up to the surface quicker
  • Fixed beds not working very well at all in SMP
  • Removed Herobrine

Woot, new uses for bone meal! Got tons of that stuff laying around, haven't had wolves spawn, and nothing to really use it for except tree fertilizer. Fantastic!

You fixed that bug with the boat that spawns you halfway into the ground?

Does this mean that will also cover the same bug that occurs with a minecart? Cause I've had that problem as well

fake herobrine was removed. notch is making the most complex mob in minecraft by far - the Herobrine. if my predictions are true he might come on halloween and he'll really make cave-houses and appear in the far. but one but - we cant kill him. he de-spawn when he is as near as 70-100 bloks to you...

That actually does creep me out lol. If I was the only one in the server and I come across a creepy cave-house that no one built or see a figure of someone standing on a hill watching me from afar, that would give me chills. I hope he does add him :D

I think he said "REMOVED HEROBRINE" to make us believe there was none before this update. He is probably adding Herobrine. OH GOD *gets his bow and sword*

Herobrine is real, I saw him again today. He also burned me to a crisp. And I don't use mods.
