-Placing half slabs is easier now (aim at top block to make the half slab be placed at the top)
-Pressing the F key reloads the world (bye-bye world holes!)
-Enchanting level max decreased to 30
-Mining all ores besides iron and gold, smelting something in a furnace, and earning achievements gains you experience (a bit OP in my opinion, got to level 113 in less than an hour!)
-Rain slowly fills cauldrons.
-Nether portals have an extremely rare chance to spawn a zombie pigman
-Server commands changed
-Priests can offer to enchant your items (via trading)
-Kicking people crashes their client
-Boats are faster

Well, I'm not really interested in anything except the Creative update, and the the half steps being able to be placed on the top of a block easier. I don't play Survival much but this seems like a pretty cool update.

I'd just like to correct something. Emeralds DO NOT make diamonds look as common as dirt. They can only be found in extreme hills biomes. And in those Biomes they are actually not hard to find.

I think each of the new updates have been fantastic, Jeb certainly knows how to add fun & functional objects into the game.

I'm not so sure about the single player server idea, simply for the fact that it means the single player commands update may take longer than usual to update.

As for writable books; they're a brilliant idea, and will be perfect for adventure maps, the same applies for villagers and the trading function they will have.

And now I say what I have to say about some of these updates!
Jt9-You can burn wooden tools as fuel now

I'm surprised nobody else is happy about this! I've never been much of a farmer in minecraft, so now I have something to do with wooden hoes.
Jt9-Villagers from spawning eggs have a random job

Yay! I hate having all my villagers I place in buildings in creative look the same!
Jt9-Book and quill, writable books!

That's cool, I guess it will work like signs. Hopefully they will soon make signs keep what is written when you take the sign.
Jt9-Moving far away from villagers and going back to them changes their profession to farmer.

How could this be good? It sounds more like a bug than an update.
Jt9-Jungle Temples

I can't wait! Now they need to add fedoras and whips!

Single player will still be exactly the same, the background code will have changed. You can choose to invite friends into your single player as if it were a server, but if you don't chose to do this it'll just be a regular single player world anyway.
Servers are NOT fine the way they are at all; they're buggy, unwieldy, far too CPU intensive for what's being run, and have a thousand ways they could be improved. This is the first step to fixing some of those problems.

Incorrect, we believe there's a new feature that enables you to invite people to your single player worlds. I see no evidence of this in the 1.3 snapshot but, the other listed features are true so I suppose this will be also. Singleplayer will never disappear, the majority of Minecraft players play singleplayer. The only difference is that you can invite people to your singleplayer worlds and convert it to multiplayer. (From what we know so far)
I guess we will have to wait and see to be sure!

In my opinion, this will be a generally good update. The only thing I'm not happy about is the texture change for gravel. As a Minecraft veteran, I'm sick of changes to old content like music, textures and how the game is played (like the hunger bar).

The modding API will mean that all mods will now be able to work in the same way, both SSP and SMP. They'll all (hopefully) work in a similar way to how Bukkit works now, but with much more power and the ability to do far more impressive stuff

-Single player are now servers

I don't quite understand how that would work. Would it be like, if you made a singleplayer world, anyone can enter it? Also, if you were using singleplayer mods would the others be automatically using them if they entered?

It basically means that your singleplayer worlds can be hosted on a multiplayer server from within minecraft without creating a server and moving around world files and editing config files. In essence it is used to easily turn your single player world into a multiplayer game that you can invite a friend to join.


:O
So you can now add friends? Or just maybe enter a username and invite? Either way that's awesome! Although... since bukkit is working with mojang to make this happen, will there be plugins or not? Any word on that?

Something like that. Probably private so you have to be invited to join one.

I really like how villages can level up! The more you trade with one villager, the higher level he will get, and he will be able to sell more items! So sweet

Thanks for that source, good to know.

Good job on that great list of all these new additions, what a major update eh? I'm loving all of these new features and looking forward to the official release of 1.3

Pity about the modding API being pushed back, but it makes sense with all of these updates to move it back.

I know the single player server thing is weird and buggy right now, but I think once it is finished it will be a useful feature for all those people who have problems making a server.

Did you copy this from somewhere or did you compile it yourself?

Can you confirm a source quoting that the modding API is delayed to 1.4?
