The cake is not a lie: Minecraft beta 1.2 update adds cake, squids and more

If you signed into “Minecraft” in the last couple of days, you probably noticed an update downloaded, but you may not know what that update includes. The “Minecraft” beta 1.2 update adds a wide array of new blocks, recipes and mobs, and it also provides more stability for multiplayer games. More info and video after the break.

On his personal blog, “Minecraft” developer Notch listed a few of these changes and additions, though he was intentionally vague about some:

New features:
* Note blocks (right click to tune, trigger to play)
* 15 wool dyes
* A new water dwelling mob
* New tree types
* Reeds magically turned into sugar canes. They still make paper.
* A bunch of new crafting recipes
* One secret useful block
* One secret pretty block
* Cake
* AND MOAR, probably. I forget!

* Paintings work in multiplayer
* Disconnecting while riding no longer keeps the player in the world
* A bunch more state is properly synched in multiplayer
* Fixed colors going weird on PowerPC
* Fixed a horrible chunk reload loop in singleplayer
* Fixed most lighting bugs in newly generated SMP maps
* Falling sand behaves better in SMP
* Fixed a few crash on load level bugs

Leave it to crafty “Minecraft” players to figure out all of the secrets.  On a thread at the “Minecraft” forums, users have noted that the new “water dwelling mob” is a squid, which drops black ink as part of the new dying mechanic.  Other updates include the ability to dye sheep and put torches on glass, a new dispenser recipe, and birch trees.

Check out the video below to see what can be done with the new note blocks.  We predict the “1812 Overture” by next month.

    By doing this, you increased the memory of this
    Minecraft server from 100MB to 2GB that is generally regarded as
    acceptable to play the game for some time. I did feel a sort of anxiety that I
    had not experience before in Minecraft Premium Account Generator, all I thought had been “I must survive. The passive creatures will not attack the players:.
