According to our calendar from 2041, it’s Thursday in week 4 and flying cars still haven’t been invented yet. However, we did manage to bring back some cool Minecraft features in the form of a snapshot.

  • Added a fancy new Scoreboard system.
  • Added some new functionality to dispensers.
  • Taught dispensers and droppers about the 3rd dimension.
  • Scared mobs away from the dangerous minecart tracks.
  • At least 20 bugs turned into features.

Get the snapshot here:

The link for "At least 20 bugs turned into features" doesn't work properly. Throws an "Error in JQL Query: Expecting either a value, list or function before the end of the query."

I can't seem to copy the URL directly from the original Mojang article. It breaks when I bring it into the article here. However, the link should work here in my comment:

I'm glad mobs won't stay on minecart tracks anymore. Also, the dispensers being able to face all 6 directions is a nice addition!
If only we had instructed them of the 3rd dimension sooner!
