Just FYI, I added "removed herobrine" as the launcher change list says it. I'm only continuing the mojang tradition of adding that to every release.

If you are looking at this, Notch (Markus Persson) send me a message I need to talk about how to improve Minecraft.
If GameInformer is looking at this, just put in your magazine something about RedPanzershrek making suggestions to Notch.
Im trying to help this game by giving it great ideas, like my profile says. I care about Minecraft and I would love to help improve it!
