Notch has just tweetedthat 1.6 will be released tomorrow morning, presumably Sweden time.
He also mentioned that testing included some people from IRC, which should bring a more robust release.1.6 has many bug fixes, as well as some long awaited additions such as working nether, maps, and hatches.
As soon as 1.6 is released, we'll be sure to bring you a full update, so keep watching!
so when notch means early Thursday morning, does it mean like 8:00am, or 12:00pm, for me at least 12:00pm is early because I don't ussually wake up intill 2:00pm( lazy school graduate with no job):tongue.gif:
You all do realize that no matter what time it is in your time zone, it will all be released at the same time, there fore within the next 24(probably closer to 12) 1.6 will be released. Don't worry about specific times, just wait for it, it'll be a little surprise.
