August will finally bring in the "Minecraft PS4 Edition," "Minecraft Xbox One Edition" and the "Minecraft PS Vita Edition."

But for the longest time with some updates here and there from developer 4J Studios, the "Minecraft PS Vita Edition" seemed to be the one version that had fewer updates compared to the other two.

A decade ago Sweden was one of the world's most taxed nations, but the government has since cut income taxes and abolished inheritance taxes. The government says the cuts as well as strong government finances have helped triple-A rated Sweden outpace much of European growth since the 2008 crisis. Swedes with jobs have seen their disposable income soar and startups like Mojang - creator of computer game Minecraft - have blossomed. But not everyone is benefiting equally. The share of people in Sweden who have less income than half the national median rose to 9 percent of the population in 2010, from 5 percent in 2004, according to the OECD. Promising no more cuts to welfare, Stefan Lofven is expected to win the September 2014 election with a centre-left coalition, ending eight years under a centre-right government.

4J Studios remedied this by showing off a new tweet that also included a snapshot of how the "Minecraft PS Vita Edition" already looks like.


As far as the other versions are concerned, 4J Studios has also answered a fan query on what else they are up to in terms of the development. In another tweet discussing the "Minecraft PS4 Edition" and "Minecraft Xbox One Edition," 4J Studios said:

A New Snapshot 14w29b Released

Even the PC version for Minecraft 1.8 is getting a few developments in the form of snapshots and the new one has just been released. The Snapshot 14w29b gives a glimpse of more things to come for the Minecraft 1.8.

"We can never be sure if bending space around time is the right approach until we get feedback from you on the 14w29b snapshot that bends time around space instead. We do that by using the newly implemented threaded render batch system," said Mojang in the official Mojang Web site.

"That's a lot a fancy sounding words, so if you don't know what that means, it should improve performance even more. Or crash horribly. But without your feedback, we'll never know which one is true."

Following previous releases, which have already optimized some performances and enabled better FPS, as well as experimented on a few more additions to the menu.

Some of these new additions, first seen in Snapshot 14w29a include effects on starvation on sleep for characters, Minecarts and TNT not being movable by water currents and other command issues.

The latest fixes for Snapshot 14w29b only deal with two areas:

- Players lose CommandStats{} after Death

- #players are taking up space on the sidebar display

As usual, the Mojang team wants to hear feedback from fans to ensure that everything is working properly in the snapshot, even more so if there are bugs found so they can get back to fixing them.
