Minecraft snapshot 14w10a released

Minecraft snapshot 14w10a has been released. As detailed by Mojang, the latest update is mostly a bugfix and mapmaker snapshot. 

"Don't worry, we have some cool survival plans soon," Mojang added. As promised, this snapshot also "technically" supports name changes though the ability to do so will not be available until after update 1.8 releases.

"All server files that are intended to refer to players will be automatically changed to go by UUIDs, and you do not need to do anything. However, this does mean that any third party tool will not work on these files, and will need to be updated to work with them," Mojang explained. "Though names changes are technically supported in this snapshot, they will not be available until after 1.8 releases when we will be confident that the majority of active servers have updated to support UUIDs. We will be releasing a Minecraft 1.7.6 version soon to backport these UUID changes for normal servers."

In the meantime, here are all of the mapmaker changes and bug fixes present in today's snapshot:
