Good news for all the Minecraft fans! Jens Bergensten (Jeb) from Mojang’s development team has announced the arrival Minecraft 1.5.2 in April via his twitter. He said, the v1.5.2 will contain a few bug fixes and support for Minecraft Realms (managed private servers). The upcoming version may contain class changes that could make 1.5.1 mods incompatible with new version.
Moreover, the Minecraft 1.6 release date has been announced in the mid of April which will bring significant performance improvements to the game.

- Removed support for Mac PowerPC and Java 5
- New Minecraft Launcher with game-launch confiugration and mod support (like Magic Launcher).
- New mobs/NPC’s
- Player health and damage rescaling
- Possible exploits removed.
The Minecraft team is striving to bring us more features. The pre-release snapshots (jar) of Minecraft 1.5.2 will be available within a few days before it’s official launch. Also, the XBOX and PE will be following the PC version changes as soon the update is rolled out. What more you are expecting the upcoming versions, post your comment below!
