Pocket Edition 0.9.5 submitted to every store Hey everyone! We just released MCPE 0.9.5, another bugfix version for 0.9. This time, it may or may not be the last, but we hope so!

We just released MCPE 0.9.5, another bugfix version for 0.9. This time, it may or may not be the last, but we hope so!
We found and squashed many nasty bugs still hiding in the very fabric on the game, so 0.9 should be now quite stable. Here are the bugs we fixed:
update: on Android, we released another version of 0.9.5 (0.9.5b? 0.9.5 bis? 0.9.5.2? whatever) which fixed a new crash and a few additional bugs. For iOS/Amazon users, this should change nothing!
- (Android) fixed a really nasty bunch of problems caused by locking the device like freezing, crashing, corrupting the world and more
- (Android) fixed a bad graphics corruption issue (missing chunks, corrupted chunks and animals) that happened when switching away from the game
- fixed chunks not loading in multiplayer when the client device is slower than the server
- fixed a crash when loading flat worlds after updating from 0.9.0/2
- fixed a possible server crash when a player disconnects from a multiplayer world
- fixed a possible crash or corruption when playing in multiplayer as a client
- Fixed Bryce Mesa biome, now they actually spawn!
- fixed fountains’ water in strongholds
- fixed some small artifacts items held in hand (torches, etc) and clouds
- (Fire TV) fixed missing textures
And we made a few tweaks, too:
- Players that have been placed at extreme heights by the respawn bugs are now placed back at y=130
- (Android) the game doesn’t waste battery power and really stops rendering now when in the background
- not getting stuck anymore in the “Looking for Server” screen if the server is full
- animals are never despawned, again
We’ve just uploaded this version to every store, so it should be out on Google Play soon and on Apple, Amazon and Samsung stores soon-ish!
+ Added Realms world uploader + Added Realms player activity monitor + Realms worlds now have more options and settings * Command blocks in Realms have been re-enabled * Improvements in Realms UI * Bugfixing

In general, everyone knows how Minecraft performs on various platforms: buttery smooth on consoles, anywhere from laggy to amazing on computers, and surprisingly well on handheld devices.
it has always been a time-honored tradition to push Minecraft to its limits, seeing what, if anything, can lag it out, slow it down, or just cause chaos with the game engine! Today, we check in with AntVenom to see how much craziness can lag out Minecraft: Pocket Edition (0.9.0), using the classic tools of the trade: lots and LOTS of TNT and fire!
IS MINECRAFT DOWN: NO, GO PLAY!
Please note that the Minecraft auth servers are currently under maintenance, and will be back online shortly. There is a problem with services related to Amazon, Mojang is currently working with them to get everything back in working order. Until they come back, you may experience trouble logging into multiplayer servers, Minecraft.net, and other similar services. Check back for updates!
IS THIS RELATED TO THE EULA: Not in the slightest.
IS 1.8 UPDATE COMING RIGHT NOW: No, this isn't related.

Hi! I'm the guy who created the first version of Minecraft in June 2009. I worked on it alone up until late 2010 when we started Mojang, and I finally left the lead developer position in December of 2011. I enjoy house music and programming, and my favorite color is purple. Ask me anything!
If you happen to have some money, you can donate it to the EFF and help make the world a better place!
edit: The AMA is over! Thanks for all your questions!
We've had hoppers for a while! Now we have bunnies!
With this snapshot we have finally had our bunny rumor confirmed! They may be tamed the same way as an ocelot, using a carrot, gold carrot or dandelion and once tamed, players may breed them using the same items! Why might you want to breed rabbits? Well they drop three new items to the game - Raw Rabbit, Rabbit Hide and Rabbit's Foot. Raw Rabbit may be cooked in a furnace and eaten, Rabbit Hide may be placed in a 2x2 square in a crafting table to create one leather, and a Rabbit's Foot may be added to an awkward potion in a brewing stand to create a new Potion of Leaping. These new potions apply the jump boost effect and may be amplified, lengthened or turned into a splash potion the same way as the other potion types.
I was not able to get the taming or breeding to work in the version of the snapshot I tried, and nor was I able to find any rabbits in the wild but they look like they will be a very useful domestic animal for the survival Minecrafter. The improvements to our non-hostiles continue with the previously inedible sheep now becoming a valuable source of food. Now upon death a sheep may also surrender raw mutton that may be cooked in a furnace to produce "Mutton". Do Mojang think us Minecrafters are too skinny? So many lovely things to eat!
For further snapshot details please feel free to visit the official Mojang news post above. Many of the bug fixes from previous snapshot versions are listed as well as a link to a bug report page. Please report any and all bugs you find in Minecraft to bugs.mojang.com. If nobody reports a bug, they can’t fix it!

Here’s a simple how to video with regard to finding diamonds. I agree with this chap that he got lucky in finding diamonds so quickly, but generally speaking, this is the way to do it. Sinking several mineshafts into various walls than having branches off those shafts is the way to reliably find diamonds. But make sure you don’t get lost.
To avoid getting lost, follow this tip: Place all torches on the wall to your right, not on the floor. Then, if you get turned around somehow, you will remember that going out from your base, all the torches on the walls are on the right side, so if you want to go back, simply make sure that all the torches are to your left, and follow the trail back.
