Minecraft Snapshot 12w17a Update Released Download Link
So we have a new snapshot again this week, I have rushed to put this post up as soon as I could. Within the hour I believe
Thursday afternoon Jeb tweeted a link to download Minecraft Snapshot 12w17a, Here is the info we have on it so far.
Here’s the development snapshot of week 17, 2012! This week’s list of changes:
- Added editable books
- Wooden half slabs in four colors (and they act as wood instead of stone)
- Bug fixing and tweaks, notably about entity collisions, “picking blocks” (creative mode), and chat
- Some other, censored stuff
Get the snapshot here:
- Client: http://assets.minecraft.net/12w17a/minecraft.jar

This all sounds very exciting! Editable Books? I’m looking fwd to checking that out. I also wonder what the ‘censored stuff’ is too?
Jeb also tweeted this;
jeb_: I think this will be this week’s top FAQ: The book recipe has been changed
I’m guessing it is up-to us to work it out.. Do you think it involves in sacks?
