Minecraft 1.3 is scheduled to come out tomorrow! The date has been shifted forward, because now Minecraft 1.4 is due to come out at the start of August!
Minecraft 1.3 is meant to be released tomorrow, with a number of possible bugs, which are planned to be fixed, in 1.4, which is coming in the start of August!
The time between Minecraft 1.2.5 and 1.3 has been the longest interval ever in Minecraft history, so all the fans are longing for it! Who isn't?
