Minecraft update

After a surprise announcement last week of a Minecraft 1.2.5 pre-release, the full version has now been released to the masses.

The next time you log into your Minecraft client you're going to find that there is yet another update ready for download.  This one is mainly about bug fixes and there are no new blocks this time around.

  • Added shift clicking support in furnaces
  • Added method to easily acquire blocks you have selected in the world in Creative mode using the 'pick block' key
  • Made the Direct Connect dialog remember the last IP for the current session
  • Fixed issues detected certain links in chat
  • Fixed wild ocelots behaving like tamed cats
  • Fixed various chat crashes
  • Made cats less eager to sit on things
  • Made cats less patient
  • Fixed world generation failing under certain circumstances
  • Fixed issues turning off sound under certain circumstances
  • Removed all ghost entities under the command of Lord Herobrine
  • Fixed crash when pasting certain characters in chat
  • Fixed slash '/' key not behaving correctly in certain environments
  • Fixed command matching being too greedy (for example: typing '/stophammertime' no longer stops your server)
  • Fixed not being able to click coloured links
  • Fixed potential issue with village door detection (which could cause too many villagers)
  • Made using a stack of bowls on Mooshrooms not consume the whole stack of bowls
  • Made punching a TNT block with flint and steel in hand destroy and drop a TNT block (right-clicking will activate the TNT)

Minecraft 1.2.5 marks the fifth update since the beginning of March for the popular game. Hopefully they'll slow down for a bit now and get more prepared for a new big release with Minecraft 1.3.
