- on Android, you can get more than 3 levels of view distance again
- the game now handles when a world is corrupted and not repairable showing an error screen

- possibly fixed other lock-ups and crashes
We are going to wait and see how it works before submitting it to App store and Amazon store but we hope to do that tomorrow. Most of the issues should now be fixed but please report things if they break!

The Noxcrew have been making a long-running gameshow based around clever Minecraft-created minigames, which pits two teams of Minecraft celebrities against each other in a race to the finish, coupled with a clever, stylized e-sports-inspired commentary! If you haven't seen an episode of this show yet, now is a great time!
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.
