1.6.1 is released if there are errors, please report them. Some features still to come, waiting on optifine and some forge mod to update in order to test them

1.6 is on the way. TODO: CTM support (again. new texture pack layout). Randomob support, both MCPatcher and Optifine. Biome coloring for Optifine (probably done, can't check until optifine is released though. Will revisit). Horse icons. I think I'll just represent them with a big H. Forge custom armor (maybe done, code matches what's in Forge currently, although that happens to currently return nothing and may change. Will revisit)

And of course waiting on modloader to make the modloader/forge version. This could take a while

All in all I am not happy with this update. Lots of very complex changes to the Minecraft codebase. The resource loading system is near inscrutable. Lots of things I need have become private or protected. Render manager methods for binding BufferedImages are gone. There's no way to get the stitched terrain image as a BufferedImage (glget is nice). Had to move around images and lang files. Can't figure out the official way (if any) to load mod lang files, so just dumping them directly in the map (same as I was doing before really, though I'd hoped with the new resource system it would be a bit less kludgy)

It's going to be a long time before some mods update.

So, do I release now in its unfinished state? Functionality is there, just missing some stuff that ties together with other mods. I'm fine with releasing often, but too many people only ever get the initial version of the mod for each new minecraft version, and never get the bugfix/feature updates that come later. Leaning towards waiting on releasing this until it's feature complete compared to 1.5.2, or most people will never see it. thoughts?

I am sure I am the only one, but I just cannot install the minimap. I had absolutely no problem before the minecraft update 1.6.1. I don't have a bin file (didnt before the update, and it still installed fine). Any suggestions?
