Get ready… this week is a CRAZY one.
PAX Fan Art Contest
We need some amazing pieces of artwork for a special PAX Project.
Here's the specifics:
*We will be choosing a few submissions from each category! By submitting your artwork you are giving us permission to show it online and at PAX.
Speaking of PAX
Our booth is on the 6th floor, spot 6201. I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT OUR BOOTH. If you are at PAX, you cannot miss it. Here's the map so you don’t get lost!
We will be having a pane at PAX! After Notch: The New Minecraft Team will be on Saturday at 4:30pm in the Kraken theatre – more information here. For those of you who can't make it Twitch.tv will be livestreaming our session!
We're looking for some helpful volunteers to work with us at our booth at PAX Prime in Seattle, August 31st to September 2nd. You must already have a PAX badge, and be over 18 years old.
If you're interested, please click here and give us some information about yourself. See you at PAX!
*Volunteers will get specialness… just saying.
So you want to know about Minecon…
The official Minecon site is now online! Registration won't start until next week, but this will give you all the information you've been waiting for and the EXACT time registration starts!

The recent two weeks Dinnerbone and I (jeb_) have worked a lot on new features, both our own and suggestions from the community. Before you ask, the API that will allow you to do your own features is waiting for a large restructuring of the render engine to be completed. I'll write more about this in a future blog post.
So while you wait for that, here are the changes in this week's snapshot:

Most of the team will be out next week, so there won't be a snapshot or Weekly Chunk.
See some of you very soon!
