Suddenly, out of nowhere...SNAPSHOT TIME! What lies in store for today's amazing snapshot release? Let's take a look!


  • Added horses, based on the work of John Olarte (DrZhark), of Mo’ Creatures fame
  • Added hay bales
  • Added leashes
  • Added carpets
  • The “Respiration” enchantment now also helps seeing underwater


Dinnerbone and Grum have been hard at work creating a NEW Minecraft launcher, with some pretty sweet features! To get the snapshot, use the new launcher available in the link below. To return to 1.5.1, simply start the old launcher and play as normal. That's all there is to it!

Want to send feedback on the new launcher? Be sure to tweet @Dinnerbone, @Grum, or@jeb_ with your suggestions, or make a post right here!

  • You might get an "unsafe" warning when trying to download the launcher. Disregard this, it is safe!
  • Don't forget to report bugs you encounter at the links above! The launcher can be updated nearly instantaneously without additional downloads!

So after the Bethesda vs. Mojang conflict, Mojang gives out a free update that puts horses in the game with armor (which probably will work)

All I can say is:
Well played.

I know I was just lazy to look up the exact date.
But still I think it's a funny reference whether it was intentional or not.
