Minecraft Patch Nears

Mojang offers details on an upcoming patch for Minecraft to update the indie construction game to version 1.3, saying this will be released on August 1st. They outline the good, bad, and ugly about the patch, and explain the long delay since the previous patch is due to underlying engine changes, saying they are "scared to push it to the public, but waiting even longer is not a solution." This Reddit thread has a full summary of the new version.

I didnt like the exploding creepers that could decimate your "fortress" etc so stopped playing.
Uh, you do realize you can play in "Peaceful" mode and there are no hostile mobs, right? In creative mode you don't even have to collect the blocks for your building projects. Additionally, simply lighting all areas in a sufficient radius means you never see a hostile mob. I have a home/base which is about 200x200 blocks in size, open to the surrounding forest -- and I never see hostile mobs in the base because of abundant lighting.

Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.
