Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.14.0 Beta and Education Edition Exposed Details

Mojang has rolled out two important updates regarding the “Minecraft Pocket Edition”, one for Android and the other one for the PC.

“Pocket Edition” Beta 0.14.0 delivers new items

The “Pocket Edition” Beta 0.14.0 was officially announced on Mojang’s blog. The update delivers new maps, hoppers, droppers, dispensers and more. It seems that witches are also part of this new update along with some pumpkins hats and even Mob Head hats. Worth mentioning are the red sandstones, the comparators and the repeaters as well as the slime blocks.

Aside from all of these new items, the update comes with improved textures, increased chances for zombie babies to become jockeys and more. The bug fixes also make a huge difference and they target the various performance problems and the crashes that were all fixed by developers.

And because we are talking about a beta here, if you want to test it out, you can only do so in the beta testing program. Before you do that, you have to make sure that you have the “Minecraft Pocket Edition” installed on your Android gizmo.

If you want to test the release for “Minecraft” (PC version) look for the snapshot dubbed 16w03a.

In other news, Mojang made it clear that a new “Minecraft Education Edition” done in collaboration with Minecraft Education will be launched. ZDNet informs us that because the “Minecraft Education Edition” is not written in the older Java version, the latter may not work with previous versions. It seems that Mojang is planning to use content in C++ for the latter, but this remains to be seen.
