Jeb has released a teaser image for this week's upcoming Snapshot - upside-down stairs! They can be placed by simply placing a normal stair against the bottom of a block, most easily done from below the block in question. Decorators will no doubt benefit from the new change - I plan to redo my ceilings accordingly.
Last week's Snapshot covered a medley of updates - while a few new features were added, a large volume of the update was dedicated to engine tweaks, file format optimization and other updates to improve the overall performance of the game. What awaits this week - aside from the improved stairs - remains a mystery. We will update the community with all the juicy details of the upcoming Snapshot, so keep an eye out!
Hmm I wonder what the new stairs would look like.... releaseing 1.8 before june would be nice as well
