Mojang today released Minecraft 1.5, dubbed the Redstone Update. There are a ton of new features included with today's update, many of which you can read about below. However, if you prefer video, YouTube user icecreamstatus has provided us with every single Redstone update feature.

With today's release of 1.5, you should know that Mojang is already working on Minecraft 1.5.1. In fact, it's already on the way. "We plan to snapshot this tomorrow, and hopefully get it out as soon as possible," lead developer Jens Bergensten said.
