    Jeb posted another teaser image, this one of a cooked chicken. While nothing was specified about it, there also appears to be a new mystery bar beneath the health track - what could it be?

    Additionally - Notch appears to have been experimenting with map-height changes. He went on to say that while nothing definitive is planned, they are looking into possible map height restrictions in the future.

    Finally - a new launcher is being tested! You can help test it You must login or register to view this content.. Bear in mind, it is only launching Minecraft for the moment, but the stress-testing of the launcher will provide helpful data for Mojang, to further improve it!


    These updates look very promising, cant wait until this update is out.

    Wasn't Notch talking about "levels & experience" (player wise). So you rise in levels or something like that?

    Would make sense as to what the mysterious bar is under the health.

    Do you think that means a higher sky limit too? I like mountain homes, like on cliffs and such.

    Actually I think it was after 1 death, although he wouldn't be stupid enough to make that the default for all difficulties of vanilla minecraft, likely just the hard setting. Also if things get too out of hand, there's always gonna be a mod to restore deaths to how they were Winky Winky
