    Jeb has provided us with the last Pre-Release version of 1.9 - get it here! Remember, this cannot be obtained via the launcher, and must be installed manually. Don't forget to report any bugs you find here, so they can be properly documented and fixed!

    Server hosters can get the new SMP jar here.

    Found so far:

    • Nine new music discs (11 in total, one "broken")
    • Blaze powder
    • Magma cream
    • Glass bottle
    • Spider eye (dropped by spiders) and fermented spider eye
    • Hardcore mode: game over when you die, hearts have new icons
    • Golden apple now has a shining animation
    • Pressure plates on top of fence posts now make sound when you walk on them or next to them
    • Villagers have no names (No more TESTIFICATE)
    • Holding the spacebar allows you to jump continuously again
    • The enderman pearls now teleports you when thrown
    • Endermen teleport to dodge arrows. Endermen teleport out of water when they touch it. Endermen teleport a lot more
    • Item repair! Put two damaged items in the crafting grid (arrangement doesn't seem to matter)
    • F5 view cycling
    • Fences now attach to adjacent blocks, has an interesting outcome when used certain ways
    • Pumpkins can be “crafted” into 4 Pumpkin Seeds
    • Zombie Pigmen now randomly drop rotten flesh or gold bits instead of everytime
    • F8 cinematic mode is back
    • Feed passive mobs wheat to make them breed with each other
    • Passive mobs follow you when wheat is selected

    Note: "There's a hardcore tooltip remaining in the world options menu. Please ignore it, hardcore is a game mode, not world option."

    Notch also noted that there will be at least two more major additions to the game, followed by a code freeze (restricted code changes) prior to the official launch of Minecraft in November. Very exciting changes - keep an eye out for updates right here!

    It means that there won't be many features after this until the final release in November. It'll mostly be bug fixes, but less of them as well.

    It means there won't be any new features, that's the idea.

    A code freeze means adding no new code that could potentially screw up anything else, the only code added is to remove current problems.

    Someone should check if friendly mobs are persistent in this update and if wool regrows.

    Minecraft is being slowly transformed into Scrolls. No. Grab your blocks and run for your lives.

    In addition - Notch strongly hinted at an upcoming enchantment system, complete with an enchanting table or similar object (seen below). While he did confirm that it would cost Experience Points, have a 3-tier system and be "totally random", any other information on the topic has been somewhat cryptic.

    Haste Alchemy potion for faster mining = win. I don't know if they will have it finished by 1.9 though :(
