Minecraft development finished until 2015

Minecraft 1.8 was released back in September as the biggest update for several months, which re-worked much of the game's internal code as well as adding new blocks, items, and mobs. A small bug-fix update was released last month, fixing a few client-side problems.

It's customary for Mojang to take a break from Minecraft development after a major update, and today Nathan Adams confirmed there will be no new develoment versions (snapshots) for Minecraft 1.9 until 2015:

Of course 2015 seems like a long way aways, but it's less than 30 days away now! Minecraft 1.9 is expected to have a few new major features, such as a new UI for command blocks, built-in shaders, a new cloud rendering system, and possibly partial implementation of the Mod API.

It's highly unlikely any new update for any edition of Minecraft will be released this year as well, with the last bug-fix updates for Minecraft PE 0.10 going out a few days ago. Tell us what you thought of this year in Minecraft in the comments :)

I think this year Mojang looked back and filled in the holes in the games.

This year has been....chaotic, to say the least. First, the whole issue of Microsoft buying Mojang rocked the community, second, Notch leaving really upset people, and third, the development being finished for this year. For the first part of 2014, we were waiting for 0.8.0 and PC 1.8, then later on Pocket Edition players were excited about 0.9.0. Now 0.10.0 is out, and everything is settling down for the holidays. When I first heard of minecraft, I despised it. But when I started playing it, I discovered that it was very fun, fitting my want for a game where you can build anything. Now, minecraft is a daily thing for me, just as normal as eating breakfast. So now things like this matter to me. Thank you, Mojang, for all the work you put in to make me and millions of others happy.
