Minecraft snapshot 13w21a

Update: Snapshot 13w21b has been released and is available through the launcher.

Last week, our very own Jeb got married! Meanwhile, the rest of us were taking a short vacation to celebrate the recent milestone of 10,000,000 PC & 10,000,000 Pocket Edition sales! This week, it’s back to work and we have some fun treats in store!

  • Added new UI for horses, to control saddle/armour/inventory.
  • Started to move over various things to a new Attribute system. You may see some new tooltips, don’t be scared!
  • Lots of work towards a new Resource Pack system, but not finished yet. Currently still compatible with texture packs.
  • New internal chat system; lots of messages should be translated now that weren’t previously.
