Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.10.0 now available to download

After quite a few testing builds and only a few weeks of development, Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.10.0 is now available for download on all platforms. The update has gone live on the Apple App Store, Google Play Store, and Amazon Market. The only one missing from the party appears to be Samsung Apps, who only has 0.9.5 (but who uses Samsung Apps anyways?).

Minecraft PE 0.10.0 isn't the next big release that many were hoping for, but it brings dozens of worthwhile improvements to the game. Here's the full changelog:


  • Upgraded the rendering system to use OpenGL ES 2.0 (coming from 1.1), using OpenGL 3.0 where available.

  • Ported tinted lighting from the PC edition.

  • Ported the round fog from PC.

  • Some performance increase on most devices.

  • iOS Added a 64-bit build for compatible iOS devices.


  • New double-sided lighting on entities and clouds that's more coherent with the terrain.

  • New water shader.

  • Water is now brownish in swamps.

  • Added smooth lighting on water and smooth color transitions.

  • Ignore swipes from outside the screen so exiting fullscreen/activating Command Center doesn't turn the view.

  • Fixed the "spawning in the air" bug.

  • Fixed a crash when creating lava during world generation.

  • Water now pushes things!

It's very buggy though. Played the seed 'butch' last night, this morning everything out of my inventory is all gone and spawned in a wall that was previously mined :(

Lots of crashes. Rejoined a world from a "perch", but started out falling to my death. All inventory "splashed" items were gone with respawn. Very annoying. Crashes often (so often it was worth repeating).
