[MCPENEWS] 0.9 Release Date

We all know that most Minecraft news comes from the developer’s Twitter accounts, but what about other sites? Believe it or not, Johan from Mojang has a Reddit account that he uses to respond to users on Pocket Edition-related subreddits. While browsing his comment history, I found something interesting that I have not seen elsewhere. On Reddit, he replied to a user asking if 0.9.0 would be out by the end of 2013, he said “Nope, planned for Q1 next year.”

In other words, Johan said that Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.9.0 will be released in the first quarter of next year. Technically speaking, the first tax quarter of 2014 (which is what Q1 means) starts on January 1st and ends on March 31st.

[PCNEWS]Minecraft Snapshot 13w47e – Twitch.tv broadcasting!

This is the very first snapshot to include this functionality and it may be a little buggy, and we’re not finished with all the features yet, but hopefully it’ll be enough for you to play with and give feedback on!
Before you can start streaming, you will need to visit your Mojang account settings and link a Twitch account to your Mojang account. Then in the game you may check the quality settings in Options -> Broadcast Options, or just go ahead and start broadcasting at any time by hitting F6. This key can be configured in the Controls options.
Currently this is only supported on Windows (Vista and higher) and Mac OS X Mountain Lion (10.8) and higher. If you cannot start broadcasting ingame, go to the options screen and it will tell you why.
Along with the new twitch.tv broadcasting integration there is also a whole bunch of bug fixes. If you find any bugs that need fixing then as always please report them to the bug tracker!
To get snapshots, open your launcher and press the “New Profile” button. Call it “snapshots” and check the box saying “Enable experimental development snapshots” and save. To switch to the normal version, you can select it in the dropdown at the bottom left corner of the launcher.
