Minecraft players on iOS and Android are still patiently waiting for Mojang to deliver on the highly anticipated Minecraft PE 0.10.0 release date. This week, we bring a welcome status update for you on the release and also some potential features that may arrive with the next update from the views of a developer who is currently working on the game.
It’s clear that there’s still a lot of issues that need to be sorted in the game. Initially we were expecting 0.10.0 to be a performance update, rather than an update which would introduce new features.
However, some interesting messages left by Tommaso Checchi, developer at Mojang suggests that we could be due to receive some new features with the new Minecraft Pocket Edition update after all.
And it will be a mostly technical (boring) update this time, but it was good to clean up some code.

Here is what Tammaso initially said about the Minecraft 0.10.0 Pocket Edition update, but he later followed it up by saying this:
My MCPE todo list used to be sorted by version, now it's just the features I'd like to have from "soon" to "maybe"! pic.twitter.com/FxNHlRwIOe

In this list of potential features for the game, he added by saying that they could be coming soon – i.e, in the next version of Minecraft PE. They include features such as rebuilding the build system, adding a ‘make world infinite’ button and also adding new controls to the game.
He was careful to not confirm or deny that any or all of these features would make it into the next or subsequent updates, but rather give fans a heads-up on what is on the to-do list for Mojang moving forward.
The most promising information to take out of Tommaso’s series of Tweets, is that Minecraft PE 0.10.0 could be coming within two weeks, so that is a very useful status update for fans who have been wondering when the new update will land.
If you are playing the game daily, let us know what you would love to see in the next Minecraft PE update. Are you happy with the features mentioned on the to-do list, or would you like to see something not mentioned?
