Notch just posted an update...
I think the last sentence is probably the most important.... let's get some bug fixes!!Perhaps this is the calm before the storm, but Iâ€™ve got a nagging feeling Iâ€™ve just been neglecting the blog.
I am still alive, and Iâ€™m working hard. Not as hard as I should, mainly due to a cold and me having the apartment for myself this week (yay, coding in my underwear!).
Weâ€™ve signed the papers for the company, and weâ€™ve found an office. We havenâ€™t signed the office yet, but itâ€™s perfect for us and as long as the owner wants us, weâ€™ll take it. Mojang is now six people strong, three programmers, one pixel artist, one CEO and one Business Developer. Itâ€™s likely weâ€™ll grow even more in the near future, but this will get us started nicely.
I was going to send a sneak preview of the Halloween update to a certain website last week for an exclusive preview, but I missed that date pretty bad. I will try to get that update out as soon as possible. The update is going well. There are six new block types (five of them have unique abilities), one new monster, a new dimension, and a couple of bug fixes. Once I get the portals working, Iâ€™ll have something very interesting going and Iâ€™ll spend the rest of the time leading up to the release adding new smaller features and polishing stuff.
And fixing bugs.
