I recently received an angry email about these snapshots. The complaint was that we just upload these JAR files with absolutely no information on how they are supposed to be used. This is true, and is somewhat of a legacy from how the snapshotting was started: to give previews of possibly broken features. Expert users could satisfy their curiosity, and we received invaluable feedback on work in progress.

The snapshots have gained popularity over time, though, so this information needs to be restated. The snapshots can potentially destroy your save games, even though we try our best not to do that. Only use them if you know what you are doing. To “install” a snapshot, you download the JAR file and replace the one located in your “application data” folder. The easiest way to find that folder is to start the game, select “texture packs” and click on the “open texture pack folder” button. It will locate “.minecraft/texturepacks”, and the JAR file should be placed in “.minecraft/bin”.

To UNINSTALL the snapshot, start the launcher (Minecraft.exe on Windows) and click the “options” button. Then click on “force update” and login as usual. The launcher will then download the official JAR file for you. Note that save games created in the snapshot may not work (and probably doesn’t) in the official version of the game.

What is the picture about? Is it a sneak peek of a new, randomly generated building?
I'm actually not really sure if I like these, to be honest. Sure, some of them are nice, like the mines, villages or strongholds. They give the feeling that there was once more in this world, gives you the feeling that you live on a planet after an apocalypse, but the more buildings we get, the less open the world seem to me somehow. Don't know what you guys think.

Ah, okay. They are Jungle temples, so that question is at least answered.

This seems like a brilliant update in progress. I'm even starting to question to wait for mods to update or just jump right into it XD

its great that theres ender chests now, considering all of the new items being added all the time, the inventory space needed a boost!
