Posted by: Matt Liebl

Today is Thursday which means more fun Minecraft goodies in the form of a weekly snapshot!

Today's snapshot for week 22 brings us a new Redstone-activating block, minor terrain changes, a lot of small changes, and a warning to all players who choose to download these previews of "possibly broken features".

Here is a quick overview of some of the changes introduced in today's Minecraft Snapshot 12w22a.

  • Trading with villagers has been updated
  • Enchantment system has been rebalanced
  • A new Redstone-activating block
  • Better Creative inventory
  • Pausing should work in single-player now
  • Some minor terrain changes
  • Added an “adventure” game mode (/gamemode 2), but requires more work
  • A lot of smaller changes and fixes

As always, if you discover anything neat hidden in the update, let us know in the comments below.

In today's update, Minecraft lead developer Jens Bergensten also issued a warning to all PC players that these snapshots can potentially harm your saved games.  He also posted instructions on how to download and install the weekly updates.
