So Jeb tweeted that the red stone update will be out in about 40 minutes, 40 minutes ago. So that means that it'll be out any minute now!

Full changelog:

Added Redstone Comparator (used in Redstone logic)

Added Hopper (collects items and moves them to containers)

Added Dropper (similar to Dispensers, but always drops the item)

Added Activator Rail (activates TNT Minecarts)

Added Daylight Sensor

Added Trapped Chest

Added Weighed Pressure Plate

Added Block of Redstone

Added Nether Brick (item)

Added Nether Quartz and ore

Added Block of Quartz, with half blocks and chiseled variants

New command: /scoreboard

New command: /effect

Containers and mobs can have custom names

Inventory management has been changed, for example you can drag-place items over slots

Texture packs now have separate images for each block and item, and can have animations

Nether Quartz Ore now spawns in the Nether

Smooth lighting now has three settings (none, minimal, maximum)

More detailed death messages

Some hostile mobs now are harder in Hard difficulty

Many, many, bug fixes

Removed Herobrine

This update is likely to ruin your redstone inventions, so make sure you back up your saves before updating. I won't have time to test this update out until later today.

What do you guys think of the update and will you be updating?

It's definitely not the direction I was hoping Minecraft would go but that's okay.

I love the fact that after "release" they still add a ton of content to this game, but the biggest thing I want out of it (after playing the Xbox version) is easier multiplayer connecting. I've heard they are kind of trying to get there with something called shards or something but who knows.
