Minecraft's head developer, Jens Bergensten (a.k.a Jeb), posted a new blog post today showing off some of the changes coming to Minecraft's world generator with the next big update. Some of the changes include smaller Oceans, more varied Biomes, as well as rare varients of the existing Biomes.

You can read the full blog post here:

It's been awhile since I've picked up Minecraft, but I think once the new Biomes hit I might have to start up a new map and see what's out there. What do you, my fellow Happy Haunts, think of the next update?

I've been wanting to get back into Minecraft, but I think I'll wait until this happens first.

Of course, Minecraft 1.7, Terraria 1.2, and the Starbound beta will probably happen all at once.

Yeah this update looks pretty neat. I may run a dedicated CG server for a few weeks so we can check it out when it drops as long as it doesn't collide w Terraria 1.2 or Starbound.

Any news on when that will be?

I actually ran a private server for me and a couple friends previously. I'd gladly help out with the server when/if that happens. :)

Sure. When it drops let me know and we can work it out. I don't mind whom hosts it. We can use the events to co-ordinate people joining with the password and such.
