13w16a - Minecraft 1.6 Snapshot
Suddenly, out of nowhere…SNAPSHOT TIME!  What lies in store for today’s amazing snapshot release?  Let’s take a look!

FEATURES:

  • Added horses, based on the work of John Olarte (DrZhark), of Mo’ Creatures fame
  • Added hay bales
  • Added leashes
  • Added carpets
  • The “Respiration” enchantment now also helps seeing underwater

NEW MINECRAFT LAUNCHER?  YES!

Dinnerbone and Grum have been hard at work creating a NEW Minecraft launcher, with some pretty sweet features!  To get the snapshot, use the new launcher available in the link below. To return to 1.5.1, simply start the old launcher and play as normal.  That’s all there is to it!
