While this is considered the "official" game, the development of Minecraft is far from over.  Notch confirmed that he and the team will continue developing and adding to Minecraft post-release and as evidenced by his latest tweet, he looks to be keeping his word.

"Oh, and.. I've seen the bug reports.. We're kicking ourselves, and will fix it as soon as we get back to Sweden," Notch confirmed in a Tweet yesterday.
