    He has already released 1.1 ages ago, so it needs to be 1.10

    1.10 would follow 1.09, not 1.9.
    So after this, the only significant increment left is 2.0 beta.
    Actually, release numbers are anything you want them to be.
    I could release software as version ant, bat, cat, dog, elephant, fox if I wanted to.

    Actually, he is MOST DEFINITELY working with decimals since no matter what he calls it, 1.10 still uses a decimal. [​IMG]

    Just he isn't using them properly. I wasn't complaining I was making a joke so don't be so serious guys. [​IMG]

    So I've been playing 1.9...
    The NPC's are so ugly. I enjoy killing them.

    There are lots of new stuff in this update.
    And, there are a couple of new mobs, I only saw the nether slime.

    Apple does the same thing with the decimal releases.

    2.0 beta will be retail, that's why he didn't use it

    So... do Villages work now? Any quests around?

    Also, a nice question:
    If I've spawned a world in 1.8 without NPCs, snow golems, ice biome et al, do I need to create a new world, or stuff will get added to my old world?

    Kthx

    Snow biomes aren't even back. Notch lied. :C They better be in when 1.9 is actually released, or I'll be pissed.

    @raul: NPCs were just started yesterday, so all they do is walk around. They look like a weird version of Bert from Sesame Street. XD

    The official release is supposed to be 1.00
    because the other releases are 1.00 Beta, 1.9 Beta etc.

    Guys, computer version numbers aren't the same as decimal numbers.
    For example firefox 6.0.2, Flash 10.3.183.5, Java 1.6.27, and so on.

    Anyways going to try this out.

    You need to go to undiscovered places where the new stuff is generated in.
