    This might stop me from trying to find working mods to allow travel in and out of the Nether. But we could be waiting a month or more for the next update.

    That's right, just what we need, more ways to burn down our creations/houses :p

    Will be good to have the Nether working in SMP finally.

    Notch is a funny guy. A lot of his latest edits for what will be Beta 1.6 will be bug fixes. Here a selection he has mentioned on twitter (Twitter , read the quotes in reverse). Somehow, I don't believe some of them.

    Who knows. Consider the twitter messages as a forewarning.

    I think it has to do with the escalation of velocity the longer carts are next to each other. My guess is there will be a cap placed rather than removal of the feature.

    It may or may not be true... A problem with it would be that all minecart magazines used in more advanced stations won't work as they need a booster to yank one cart out. My newly designed magazine using powered rails would still work though, but it's more complicated to build.
    If he added the pistons it would be trivial to make a minecart magazine.

    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)
    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.
