Minecraft 1.5 Redstone Update Released for PC/Mac

As the resident Minecraft guy here at Inside Gaming, it’s my duty (sort of, but not really) to inform you of the latest update releases for Minecraft. And today, Minecraft Update 1.5, The Redstone Update, has officially gone live for PC/Mac versions of the game.

In addition to general bug fixes and engine improvements, the team has added loads of extra quirks like stackable snow, improved a.i., item counters, and much more. In fact, there’s so much that I’ve listed the entire change log below for your perusing.

Once you’re done here, go download the update via the client launcher and get back to mining, crafting and not checking the basement window to see if it’s daylight yet.

Change Log

  • Added Hopper (collects items and moves them to containers)

  • More detailed death messages

  • Many, many, bug fixes

  1. Removed… Herobrine?

    POR QUE?

    • It’s a Minecraft inside joke that they’ve been milking since the alpha, I suppose Notch still gets asked if Herobrine is real so they “remove” him from the game every patch.

  2. Yeah wtf Removed Herobrine? what means that

  3. in the past updates they mojang had said that they have removed herobrine.
    this could mean that he could come back in the future
