Minecraft 1.5 Redstone Update Pre-Release Has Been Released!

Mojang finally announced the release of the much-anticipated Redstone Update pre-release today. There are a relatively large list of changes included in this pre-release, all of which can be sampled by downloading the pre-release today from Mojang.com

Here are some of the most notable changes included in the Redstone Update pre-release:

-Added the Redstone Comparator, which is used in Redstone Logic operations

-Added daylight sensor

-Added weighted pressure plate

-Added nether quartz and ore

-Added Hopper, which will collect items and transport them to containers

-Added Dropper, which functions like a dispenser but always drops the item instead of storing it

-Added the Activator Rail, which activates TNT minecarts which pass along the tracks

-Added trapped chest

-Added new commands like /scoreboard and /effect

-Gave players the ability to give custom names to containers and mobs

-Inventory management has been tweaked to allow players to drag-place items over slots

-Texture packs can now contain animations and will have separate images for each block and item

-Smooth lighting has been tweaked to give it three settings: none, minimal, maximum

-Death messages now contain more detail

-Some mobs are now much more hostile on ‘Hard’ difficulty

-Removed Herobrine

-“Many, many bug fixes”

This patch is designed to improve the usefulness of Redstone and make it easier to make crazy machines and factories without turning to third-party mods. I don’t know about you, but I’m very excited about the Redstone Update.

Look for Minecraft 1.6.4/1.7.2/1.7.4/1.7.5, the Redstone Update, to appear on the downloader on March 13, 2013. If you want to check it out early, download it from Mojang.com today by clicking here.
