Creeper removal. Sadly I'd actually vote for that some nights.

The booster quote, I'd read as capped as Splat mentioned - but who knows, guess we'll find out at some stage.

The latest additions made by Notch (Twitter)

+ Added hatches

Yes, trapdoors. They work just like normal doors, except flat. They require a solid block next to them for various reasons.

They do NOT let water pass through, unfortunately.

1 block size
This is much more the sort of thing you need for an adventure world involving mining IMHO.

Trap Doors would be nice, Then my roof ladder holes can be closed off with a proper door.

And because the nether is in a different time zone, beds won't require players in there to sleep in order to advance time.

Notch has now been working on a world with sky islands. He has put up some photos:

I spent a lot of time today trying to add a floating island dimension. It did not go well. Performs well, looks ugly.
