    I just updated the client and the server to Minecraft Beta 1.0

    * Working server-side inventory! Finally! (And as a result of that, a whole pile of bugs and issues got fixed)
    * Made SMP servers save chunks way less often in most cases. Chunks don’t resave if they got saved in the last 30 seconds
    * Moving too far away from a container, or having it blow up, closes the inventory screen
    * Fixed /kill
    * Introduced leaf decay again. It acts differently from before
    * You can now throw eggs
    * On a whim, added super exclusive clan cloaks for Mojang Employees
    * .. and something else, which is even more rare[/p]

    Time to download it! Not many new features though! I wonder what the "something else" is!

    There are descriptions for items that you hover over.

    Edit: I was wrong. That was there since the Nether update.

    I've been slowly getting back into MC after a long while off. In fact, played yesterday (or saturday?) for the first time in months. Now that Beta is out, i'm excited to see the next steps!

    It's a shame my GPU went for a shit the other day. The latest version of my integrated graphics driver is so obsolete it won't even load Minecraft. I just get some kind of OpenGL error. Rats cocks.

    @Depravo: Is it an intel integrated card?

    Wife®'s dell workstation has that. And i get the Java/OpenGL error. I've tried finding fixes, only to find out NOONE with this onboard card can get it to work.

    Any recent GPU will be able to run it. Even I am able to, but I've got an integrated 4200 Radeon from AMD/ATI. An 8500 GT works fine too, you just need a GPU/IGP with proper OpenGL support.

    @WildWon: Yep, it's an 'Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family' whatever that may be. The drivers were dated 2004 (when I got the computer) so I updated to the latest which were dated 2006. I don't suppose it matters - Minecraft would probably melt it anyway.

    It's about time I got an entirely new computer as this one is six years old and not worth upgrading. I just need to find a job first...

    People who buy the beta do get the full game when it's released. It says here.

    they miss out on all expansion packs released thereafter however
    they will still receive bug fix/updates

    A lot of shit seemed to be broken, before Beta 1.0_0.1 you couldn't move things to two rows of your inventory from a large chest, and apparently a lot of Mac users are unable to play the game.
    On top of that people are complaining of high resource consumption.

    Client 1.0_01 is up, fixing a double chest issue and a rare crash on load level bug.

    There’s a serious problem getting the client started for some people (especially Mac OSX?). I’ve also heard about weird item duplication bugs with dropped items, and a severe performance reduction.

    It’s 7:40 PM here, but I will work on these bugs tomorrow.

    I’m also hoping to be able to squeeze in some fun for xmas.. Perhaps a new mob?[/p]

    New mobs for XMAS, perhaps?

    I wouldn't count on it, he has too much other stuff to fix and other promises to keep up before he should even think about introducing another mob.
