Over the past few weeks a number of glimpses landed for the upcoming Minecraft 1.7 update, which are given thanks to various snapshot downloads and video demos. Most recently, we saw new Stained Glass textures within one of the latest Minecraft 1.7 previews thanks to snapshot 13w42a and 13w42b including bug fixes and other improvements.
Today, we wanted to feature a video revealing some of the changes coming with the Minecraft 1.7 update thanks to snapshot 13w42a / 13w42b. If you want to try one of these preview builds yourself, then you can do so by getting the download for Minecraft 1.7 and before doing so making sure you understand this update is not the final version.
If you want to see the full changelog for Minecraft 1.7 snapshot update 13w42a, then you can see all the bug fixes and new features found within this Reddit post. Be warned, the snapshot releases are for experienced users only.
