– Jeb says September 8!/jeb_/statuses/108812676288884736

– The plan right now is to release the “PAX version” of Minecraft ASAP, but there is some crucial work remaining. Sep 8th is a good guess

– This is why Notch is awesome!/notch/status/104582639947759616
@notch I downloaded your game in tpb,deal with that (elhinnn)

@elhinnn I hope you like it. I’d prefer it if you bought it, but I haven’t lost a single dollar from you downloading it. (notch)

– Rivers are in the game!

– They either hit the ocean, or loop back. I know looped rivers don’t make much sense, but it works. ;D (Notch on Twitter)!/notch/status/104201068266795008

– Map of 1.8 world with rivers.

– Notch is adding HUGE oceans and HUGE islands!/notch/status/104235139407675392

– Trying to balance gameplay against scale is interesting. I can do HUGE oceans with HUGE islands very easily and fast now, but it plays bad.

– Bigger islands = bigger biomes. Deserts like to be big.!/notch/status/104235203505029120

– But the bigger the islands are, the bigger the biomes can be. And deserts want to be big.

– DEEP oceans, check.!/notch/status/104239917911117825

– Volcanoes are a possibility?!!/jeb_/status/104479882020524032

– Dungeons also include ‘abandoned mineshafts’, complete with broken minecart tracks and wooden tunnel archways to prevent caveins.

– Guy asked if the Nether was getting work, Notch said something that sounded like it was along the lines of “not in 1.8, but soon after, yes”.

– The Endermen are peaceful. If you look straight at them, they freeze and look at you. When you look away again, they run fast. And teleport.

– They run TOWARDS you, not away. So if you happen to look at one, do not look away.
