As we’re getting closer and closer to the release date and the pressure is on for wrapping up development, the team have decided to do (roughly) weekly pre-releases until Minecraft comes out of beta in a month!
This will mean quick access to new features for those of you who just can’t wait for more :D

Plugin Spotlight: Essentials
If you run a bukkit server and don’t have Essentials… well… get it! It has loads of commands to do those useful things you always want to do, without installing loads of separate plugins.
Plugin Spotlight: CreeperHeal
If you don’t want to have Creepers blowing up your nice building, but still want your players to fear Their Coming, as they open a hole in your wall and let other monsters come in, then CreeperHeal is for you! It fixes the Creepers’ damage, but little by little! so it lets other monsters come in . Or you can set it to destroy artificial building, while replacing the natural terrain after a while. It can also affect any type of explosions along with fire, so HAVE FUN WITH YOUR TNT, while not completely destroying your map.
