We missed this at the time, but a post on Thursday on The Word of Notch
offers the legal documents (in Swedish) for the upcoming
court battle with Bethesda over using the Scrolls name. He also talks a bit about the upcoming full version of Minecraft
Me and Jens have only two more major features we want to implement before the release in November. The plan it to stop all new development on October 18, and resume them again after the release on November 18. That will give us one month to focus on just fixing bugs, cleaning up the code, and optimizing the performance to make sure the release will be as good as possible.
Celebrating the full version with the fan is going to be an amazing experience. I am a bit nervous about it, to be honest. Iím not sure how many people are going, and Iím terrified of public speaking. I can handle one-on-one discussions or handshakes, and I can even deal with giving autographs, but when it gets too big, I just start freaking out.
Carl and Lydia have been doing an amazing job organizing it all, with plenty of help from Vu and Meeting Expectations. To keep up with the latest news there, follow Carl and Lydia on twitter, and read the Mojang blog.
