Yesterday the vanilla Minecraft updated to 1.4.7 to fix some bugs. Today there is another snaphsot: Minecraft Snapshot 13w02a
This is the start of the new texture pack system. Each item will have a separate file for its texture, rather than using a single file for all textures for all items. This enables textures to have multiple images and be animated. It also will allow texture packs to be incomplete as the default texture file will be used to fill the gaps.
- Improved death messages
- added quartz blocks
- Improved naming (using the anvil) of containers and mob eggs
- Trapped chests now give off the redstone signal through walls
- Improved hoppers and made them controllable by redstone
