Minecraft 1.6 Changelist is Full of Fixes

Notch has released the changelist for the upcoming Minecraft update, Beta 1.6 and it’s a doozy. The amount of bugs being fixed is simply astounding, so while this one may be a little light on the features it’s not a small update by any means. The update is expected to drop Wednesday, but will definitely be out sometime this week.

  • Added craftable maps
  • Added hatches
  • Added tall grass in some biomes
  • Mushrooms now spreads (very) slowly
  • Made booster tracks speedier
  • Blocks destroyed by other players in multiplayer now shows the breaking block particle effect
  • Made booster tracks speedier
  • Fixed submerged boats rising very very fast
  • Fixed fire hurting through wall corners
  • Fixed creepers retaining charge level when they can’t see their target
  • Fixed fires being impossible to put out in multiplayer

This is just a small sample of what’s being changed. I’m still very excited to be able to enter the Nether on multiplayer, but a lot of this sounds very interesting. Check out Notch’s Blog for the full list.
