Minecraft Snapshot 12w49a has been released and it adds an interesting new addition to the game - fireworks! With many different shapes, colors and other cool options there are a ton of variations so they are very dynamic and diverse. The snapshot also added enchanted books so that you can store enchantments as well as a bunch of bux fixes.
Also mentioned on the Mojang blog is 1.4.6, a new update to Minecraft which will include everything in this snapshot and some more fixes and is coming out before Christmas. This is just a tiny update so that we “have fireworks for New Year's Eve” before the real deal - the 1.5 “Redstone Update” that's set for late January.
