Minecraft Gold

Notch tweets that Minecraft is gold, marking the completion of the sandbox game that's already been purchased over four million times. Word simply is: "So, yes, Minecraft has gone gold. :D" Here's a Minecraft 1.0 Twitpic.

@Dev I can't speak for changes over the last year, since I've only been playing a few weeks, but I know the adventure update (1.8) was a big one. It added strongholds (huge sprawling dungeons), abandoned mine shafts, new mobs, new foods, a food bar, new blocks.
Thanks! That's the kinda info I'm looking for!

Sweet, lmgtfy, my favorite site!

It leads me to this:
http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Version_history

Which is a GIANT fricken document detailing changes down to the minute. I don't really care about "Fixed Redstone circuits not working after /time set x glitch is now fixed in SMP."

What I want to know is significant features in the last year since they added portals. And I'm not feeling like spending a couple hours reading that giant 50 page document.

Plus a word search for "enchant" turns up ZERO hits in that changelog.

Then don't read the bug sections, they're very clearly marked differently from the sections they detail new features. There's been a lot of new changes, don't blame me if you're too lazy to do the tiny amount of work to read what they are.

This is for upcoming features, which would have enchanting in it: http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Upcoming_features
Upcoming features may or may not be in the release version. For instance, dual weilding is in that list. I'm interested in what's the major changes (specifically new features) between a year ago and now, not what might change in 2012.

As for bugs being listed differently than new features. Sure. Did you read it?
Its mostly things like "New settings in Server.properties: view-distance, allow-nether" and "New Bow shooting sounds" neither of which I care about.

Even if I stick to JUST the new features list on that link, its not a trivial amount of time (unlike your claims) to read that 50 page document.

In addition, with some changes, its hard to tell if they are trivial or not. For instance, the new mobs silverfish, are they just something in the water that make little difference, or are they fishmen that crawl out of water and attack you? And even so, I doubt one new mob is as big of a change as enchanting. Someone with experience playing minecraft could list off say 3-5 biggest changes in the last year in just a few seconds. Based on other replies, I'm not the only one reading this thread to not have played minecraft in a while and might be interested. If someone gets back into the release version of minecraft, they are more likely to spread positive word of mouth about the game.
