Minecraft Adventure Update Pushed Back, Full Release Delay Probable

The Word of Notch has news from the Minecraft developer that the planned "adventure update" for the sandbox game will be part of a future version 1.8 update. This was announced as part of the next version 1.7 update, but he now explains this plan has changed, and the game will likely not meet its planned November 11th release date:

That means 1.7 will be released soon, containing only pistons and probably a couple of bug fixes. The adventure update will take however long it takes, and will be released as 1.8. It might be a long wait, but it will be worth it!

After 1.8, we’ll have to start crunching for the full release in November. That includes finishing up the mod api, improving stability and performance, adding supporting features like friends lists and a proper server browser, integrating singleplayer and multiplayer, and most importantly fleshing out the gameplay.

The release date is almost certainly changed to sometime the week after 11/11/11, and we’re working hard on setting that up. We want to make a big spectacle out of the release where we involve fans and celebrate it properly.

Once you get tired of building rollercoasters there isn't a lot to do in MC except do it with other people on a server.

That's around the time you should start dipping into the user created content section of the Minecraft forums, give this a try.

Also try Millénaire, it gives the game a whole new angle to shoot for by spawning NPC ran villages that you can have a hand in building.

Or if you just want to screw around in a new world for a bit, try the recently released Kataminey Damacraft.

At the moment, the high amount of manpower from the mod and mapping communities are outputting way more interesting stuff than Mojang themselves can ever hope to accomplish. I'm sure Mojang will come up with something truly special once 1.8 comes along but right now, I'm even more anxious to see what other craziness the community can come up with.
