Releasing an early snapshot this week because we need to crunch out the pre-release as soon as possible. This snapshot has the following changes:

  • Anvil block has been tweaked (it’s cheaper to create, minor visual changes, and you can repair tools using wood/ingots/diamonds)
  • Bats no longer trample crops or trigger pressure plates
  • Redstone repeaters can be “locked” (fixed output) by having a powered repeater connected to its left or right side
  • Added an option to hide a server’s IP address
  • Updated language files
  • More bugfixes & tweaks!

Download the snapshot here:

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

The repeater update sounds interesting. And I'm glad that Anvils take less iron to craft!

the locking system seems very useful, i hope they do some more stuff like this (EG. Redpower 2 mod)
