Hey hey! We are currently working to get Minecraft 1.4 out around Halloween – the Pretty Scary Update! Until then, have the (near-)weekly snapshot, 12w36a:

  • A new scary decoration block
  • The “secret” from previous snapshots is now spawnable
  • A new mob variant in the Nether
  • Minor changes to the leather dyeing (the colours will attempt to maintain intensity and not dilute as much)
  • The “work in progress block” is now called “Beacon” and can be crafted
  • Carrot on a stick!
  • Bug fixes

Download the snapshot here:

If you don't have Minecraft you can download the launcher here: Minecraft.net
