About Installing Snapshots (for PC only)
I have heard that people get some bugs in the snapshots that we put up on the blog and we think it may have to do with people “installing” it incorrectly. What you should do is just overwrite the whole minecraft.jar file with the snapshot one. To download a snapshot right click on the link and choose “save as”. To find the minecraft.jar file, fire up the launcher and hit Options. There you find the path to your minecraft-folder.

Here is the full changelist for latest Xbox update!

Features:

- Added Pistons & Sticky Pistons.

- Added Stackable fences.

- Added Shears – required to get wool from sheep, and to collect leaf blocks.

- TNT needs Flint and Steel or Redstone to detonate.
