The game was ported from AS2 to AS3 in this update, which makes the game a lot faster, easier to program, and have the ability to do cool things like saving to file!

Anvils were added! You can now rename items, repair tools, and combine enchantments to make the mightiest sword ever!
 
Nametags can be used to name mobs, which stops them from despawning.

Fishing!
You can now use the fishing rod for Fishing! Rafts were fixed! You can fish from a raft now, like a true fisherman.
 
There's fish, salmon, clownfish, pufferfish, and items to find.
 
There are two more enchantments for fishing: lure and luck of the sea.


 

Rabbits!
Rabbits are the new mob in this update! There are 8 types, however two of them can only be seen by naming them "Moose" or "Toast" with a name tag.
 
Their drops include rabbit hide, raw rabbit, rabbit's foot, and carrots. You can make rabbit stew!


 

New "spawnSkin" command!
One of the coolest additions is the ability to spawn any public skin as a simple mob with the spawnSkin command!
 
The heal and tp commands were also added.
 
Speaking of skins, you can now search skins from the game!
