Well, in this game, I spawned on the beach on the edge of a snowy, mountainous biome. The nearest trees were a hike, so I was glad of the leg up (since I'm playing this in survival mode).

It looks like the available commands are currently /gamemode, /toggledownfall (rain), /give, /kill, and /xp.

A heads up to DeeP about the wooden half slabs: The full notes also mention that they will actually act like wood rather than stone as they currently do. I noticed that you used wood half slabs as a fireplace surround in some of your castle rooms. When we eventually get to 1.3, your rooms may burn down.

Ugh! Books have a new recipe that adds one piece of leather....I just calculated that I will need about 4500 books for my planned library....I had better get busy and make them all before 1.3. I don't want to slaughter that many cows. I think that I will be expanding my sugar cane farm a bit...

I believe that old slabs are still treated as stone. But yes, I would test this to be sure.

Chip Mubs Subs ‏ @Hafk: @jeb_ Will my old wood slabs/doubleslabs start on fire with this snapshot? If so, I've got some fireplaces to change.
Jens Bergensten ‏ @jeb_: @Hafk No the old slabs are still stone
1.3 will be at least a month away, on my estimate.

Books in this snapshot are three paper plus one leather. A writeable book (book and quill) is a feather, a ink sac from a squid and a book, placed diagonally from top left to bottom right in that order.

Another snapshot - Minecraft Snapshot 12w18a

Quote:
* The client now comes with both the client-side and the server-side JAR files. The file called “minecraft.jar” should be in your “.minecraft/bin” folder as usual, and the “minecraft_server.jar” file should be in a folder called “.minecraft/server”.
Also:
This week’s snapshot is extra experimental!
They are working on shifting logic elements from the client to the server.

Other features:
  • Wooden tools work in furnaces
  • Villagers spawned from spawning eggs will get a random profession
There are some hidden features. Redstonehelper has already started a list of what has been mentioned/found:

New snapshot (http://www.mojang.com/2012/05/minecraft-snapshot-12w19a/):
NB: The client now comes with both the client-side and the server-side JAR files. The file called “minecraft.jar” should be in your “.minecraft/bin” folder as usual, and the “minecraft_server.jar” file should be in a folder called “.minecraft/server”.


Main features:
  • more on server and client separation
  • Added cocoa plants to jungles
  • Added a “large biomes” world type
