Minecraft Pocket Edition users received good news today: PE would soon be updated to version 0.5.0. Mojang announced that the update was just submitted for review and that it could begin to roll out in mid to late November.

The 0.5.0 update includes a number of new features that aim to bring Pocket Edition up to the level of quality that computer and Xbox 360 users have come to expect. Those features include:

And, like any Minecraft update, the 0.5.0 update features a wide range of tweaks and bug fixes. Notable tweaks include:

-Hearts are now restored while sleeping in bed
