    adventure mode has been mentioned, basically you can create a world, but the blocks are not destructable, so you can create custom maps, it's a great mode

    A number of recent additions have been targetting the adventure designers. They are why Dinnerbone has added the tripwire.

    New snapshot (http://www.mojang.com/2012/06/minecraft-snapshot-week-24/):

    Main features:

    • You can now use “/publish” to open your single-player game for LAN friends to join. This is still very much work in progress, so it lacks some necessary settings such as what game mode your friends will get, and if they should be able to use cheats or not. Also, the “/publish” command is temporary, you can’t even access it if you haven’t enabled cheats
    • The Ender Chest has been changed to have an inventory per player and not per world. Also, knocking down the chest will break it into 8 obsidian, unless you have Silk Touch.

    Hmmm....I'm not sure what to think of the ender chest change. On the one hand, it will make it much more useful for safe travel and mining, but on the other, I was looking forward to using the chests as an inter-game mail system to trade with other folks currently online (I'm trying to limit my use of /tp by travelling by rail or nether, but spending all that time travelling to trade a few item would limit my trading if I stick to it).

    I believe that Jens's issue is whether it changes the game in a positive or negative direction. I suspect that he designed it for single player but has rethought it for multiplayer.

    The wierd thing is that all of the chests can be destroyed but their contents will still exist, so that when you make a new chest, it will allow you access to the original contents.

    A little warning though, Dinnerbone said that in the next snapshot, mobs will be able to spawn on inverted stairs and inverted half slabs. He has just made redstone, rails and doors work on top of those blocks. Hopefully he won't make mobs spawn on normal stairs and normal half slabs. That would make a lot of the MC community irate.

    It also states that they "have finally decided to lock down on a proper release date for Minecraft 1.3: August 1, 2012."
