Default MC 1.8 - The coming Adventure update (was MC 1.7 originally)

Mojang may still be having getting version 1.6 cleaned up and debugged, but it seems that Notch has planned ahead... a little. His Twitter account (Twitter) has the following news about version 1.7 and his next holiday...

Read in reverse:

notch But I'll bring my MacBook Air along everwhere and squeeze in coding all over the place. I'll post news and screenshots. =)

notch 1.7 will take a while, though. First 1.6.6 this week to fix a few more things, then I'm going to E3. Then there are summer vacations..

notch (because counter-strike went from 1.6 to :source. Get it? Kaplan did the joke earlier today)

notch I'm feeling very motivated. Minecraft Beta 1.7 wil be the Adventure Update (or similar). The rumors of Minecraft: Source are false.

I'll buy a key soon. I swear.

Is it getting dearer or is it my imagination.

It is getting dearer as it approached release. Price went up from Alpha to Beta and I think is supposed to jump again after Beta is finished.

Added Minecraft shears. Has uses on sheep, leaves, tnt and a fourth thing, which will remain secret for now.

Shears on TNT defuses the block, yeah.

jeb_ Jens Bergensten
After checking the Minecraft wiki I decided to make shears cut wool blocks quicker too, since it makes... uhm.. Minecraft sense =)

jeb_ Jens Bergensten
Since many are asking: Yeah, shears is now the only reasonable way to get wool from sheep. Killing (unsheared) sheep also drops one, though

Yeah and there's some "adventure maps" which ask you to follow a few rules while exploring. They tend to be puzzle/platformer style with some story being revealed as you travel along.

Post E3 information dump! : The Word of Notch

Too much to say, but the crucial bit is that Notch is going to only code the PC version. He'll leave the Xbox and Android versions to others in Mojang.

And

Quote:
* We’re starting the modding support on a small scale with 1.7. We’ll be giving the source code out to a very VERY small group of people before the release of 1.7. We’ll use those experiences to work out the final details, then we’ll get the modding api out as soon as possible after 1.7 has been released.
