The highly addictive and still incomplete Minecraft gets a chest full of new features in the beta 1.3 update. Straight from the world of Notch here's what will be added to once you open up Minecraft if you haven't done so already.
Implemented a new lighting engine with the help of MrMessiahs (can be turned off)
Changed the options around, added a new “Graphics options” button
Added beds. If all players in a map sleeps in a bed during night, the game immediately skips until morning
Added three new half-size blocks
Added Delay/Repeater redstone dust blocks
Added whitelisting to the server. To use, enter “whitelist ” where cmd is “on”, “off”, “add ”, “remove ”, “list” or “reload”
New save file format, old maps need to be converted (that might take a while..)
It’s now possible to have more than five save slots, and to rename saves
Scrollbars in both the texture pack list, and in the map selection screen
Replaced the Mojang splash image to reflect the new logo colors
.. and a bunch of bug fixes and tweaks!
So MMGN Minecraft sleepovers?
