Minecraft Snapshot 13w09a

This snapshot is a bit late, due to us doing games for charity (to which you still can donate and get to play the games), but you know what they say about the longer you wait… Anyway, we’re still in bug-fixing mode, but getting really close to a Minecraft Redstone Update release now! We intend to get a pre-release out by Thursday, and an official release out next week.

The things changed in this snapshot are:

  • Mobs can now ride stuff that rides other stuff
  • Players riding stuff will keep it when logging off (ie, if you’re on a minecart and log off, you will take that minecart with you)
  • Animated blocks and items in texture packs now requires the animation definition (previously it was optional)
  • Language files have been updated
  • [MC-2555] Cannot Connect To Own Server While Not Online (LAN) / Playername beeing E-Mail address when offline
  • [MC-6077] Comparators causes block updates while idle
  • [MC-7167] Hopper’s name doesn’t change in its GUI after renamed in anvil
  • [MC-9391] Command Block Arguments Length
  • [MC-9473] Unnecessary delay of “Done” button in the texturepacks menu
  • [MC-9687] Hopper don’t update comparator when receiving item stack
  • [MC-9788] Mob Spawners failing to “Saving entity NBT”
  • [MC-9935] EntityAIAvoidEntity Interference
  • [MC-10033] Scoreboard accepts arguments for @p but if not found it will use a wrong name
