First screenshot of custom skins in Minecraft PE revealed

The Minecraft PE team has been hard at work on the next version of Minecraft: Pocket Edition. The new update will include features such as boats, updated controls, One of the new developers, Daniel Wustenhoff, tweeted this earlier today:

As far as I know, this is the first time skin skin support has been shown in Minecraft PE. The feature was originally planned for the big 0.9.0 update, then delayed to 0.10.0, then delayed again. If all goes well, support for changing your user skin could finally arrive.

The screenshot also shows the ability to carry two mobs/players in a single boat, and the new boat controls using paddles. Also visible in the screenshot is fishing, also coming to 0.11.0. Maybe this should be called the "Better Late Than Never Update."

Nice. I don't really play PE anymore, but it's good to know that it keeps evolving.
