Minecraft Snapshot 12w17a released


It's Thursday, which means it's time for a new Minecraft update!    Minecraft Snapshot 12w17a has been released adding editable books, wooden half slabs in four colors, and, of course, bug fixes and tweaks.

But wait!  Lead developer Jens Bergensten is back to his mysterious ways, censoring some other added features.  If you discover them, let us know in the comments below!  Here's what Jens had revealed about the snapshot of week 17, 2012.

  • Added editable books
  • Wooden half slabs in four colors (and they act as wood instead of stone)
  • Bug fixing and tweaks, notably about entity collisions, “picking blocks” (creative mode), and chat
  • Some other, censored stuff
