“What's this? This doesn't sound like a redstone update at all!”, you say. “Indeed,” we say. Thing is, we* suddenly decided we wanted to make sure that you have fireworks for New Year's Eve, so we're working in several parallel branches of the code now.

Hey hey hey! Snapshot time!
Changes since 1.4.5:

  • Added fireworks (sound effects will come soon)
  • Added enchanted books for enchanting items
  • Plenty of bugs addressed!

“What's this? This doesn't sound like a redstone update at all!”, you say. “Indeed,” we say. Thing is, we* suddenly decided we wanted to make sure that you have fireworks for New Year's Eve, so we're working in several parallel branches of the code now. One is for the 1.5 “Redstone Update,” and one is now for a 1.4.6 patch update. This update will be out before Christmas, and 1.5 will wait until January (or possibly February).

The fact that that firework blew in the nether which has a very small roof height means that we can set the delay of the firework's detonation!? or/and does it explode when getting close to a solid structure!?

It's neat that they're adding fireworks to minecraft, but I imagine they'll mostly be used for adventure maps.
