    So far, Minecraft 1.6 has been kept secret. However, last night Minecraft sold its 10,000,000 copy, becoming the 7th best selling PC game ever. So Jens decided to release a 1.6 teaser.

    So what do you think it is? Loose stones or female skins?

    Contrary to popular belief, I am not the only person here who likes horses or the idea of ridable mounts in Minecraft...

    In fact, Jens accidentally made it "public knowledge" during Mojam.

    jebox - Jeb_ of Mojang at 1:00:38

    He accidentally showed his MC code. It had files for horses of all sorts of colours and a donkey and gold and metal armour.

    ps. MiniObsi had a rode a pony yesterday, so, yes, all our family has equine emotions at the moment, but this has been a very dominant aspect of fans' requests to Mojang for a long time.
    pps. They also came up when he was looking through the thumbnails of files. Someone saved a copy of the screen at that moment at http://i.imgur.com/5tz0lwK.jpg.
    Though they might have been reference pics from Mo's Creatures

    Heading into battle on horseback will be cool. Will hopefully be able to fire a bow.

    Maybe we start building a race track in advance :)

    Can't wait to get my hands on the 1.6 source code to play around with.

    Can the horses fly?

    Let's see, what could they make a horse do that a pig can't

    • jump fences
    • jump holes
    • be tied to a fence
    • pull minecrarts (that have chests in them)
    • carry chests (well, maybe a donkey for that)
    • wear out (as distinct from just having to be fed to go fast)
    • cross-breed between colours
    People in other forums have been arguing about whether it will make the pig-riding redundant or not. I doubt Jens will add it without making them both worth it. The Mojang game desgin generally thinks about things like this, especially if this is one of the major parts of MC 1.6.

    Jens has confirmed that horses can wear armour and be tied up to a fence.

    That's such a cool addition. Riding an armoured horse into battle - what could be more fun?

    That pig is looking at the horse all shifty like.

    "Siff you're the first mount to be coded into this game!"

    More from Dinnerbone on why the new launcher is needed: Dinnerbone comments on Either I'm crazy, or this means soundpacks.
