Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.8.0 will have new blocks, 0.7.6 will be submitted this week

BT-BNtPCcAAHmcY.png largeNot much news has come out of Mojang regarding the next major release of Minecraft Pocket Edition, besides the screenshot above. Today Johan, the head developer of Minecraft Pocket Edition, revealed there will be new blocks in the update. "Working on 0.8.0, will start adding more blocks later today after the new inventory rendering code is done," he said today on Twitter. What blocks will be included is anyone's guess as of right now, but as always we will keep you updated.

Slightly less exciting but still worth noting, Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.7.6 will be submitted this week, Johan confirmed. However, keep in mind that after the app is submitted to Google Play, Amazon Appstore, and the Apple App Store, it can take anywhere from a day to two weeks to be available for download. The update itself has a few bug fixes with Pocket Realms and gameplay, with no new features. See the original tweet at the source link below.

Seems interesting. I hope at least the new blocks are basic redstone blocks, and maybe if they can make the app "launcher" they can have it update at any time, so people don't have to wait for a day (it isnt much) to a week, or 2 (Thats a lot). It would also be a cool feature that people can sync their maps from PC, PE, and XBLA, so I can redstone on the go, and import it to a adventure map that I would be working on. Anyways, interesting post, and hope for good news in the future! ~CthruME

I don't think the Chromebook will ever have Minecraft. Minecraft relies on Java (a web plugin like Flash), but Google is trying to move away from all plugins. Mojang also has a support article about it here: https://help.mojang.com/customer/portal/articles/920822-minecraft-on-chromebooks

They only added mineable redstone to 0.8.0. You can't use it to craft anything until 0.9.0 or later.

Their will be red stone but you can't use it for anything. 3D clouds and you can change skins in the settings and carrots and ETC. Better graphics and you can use cheats. The update will be around this month or the month after.
