Minecraft 1.0 Full Release is Here!

Its finally here!

Mojang at the Minecon launch in Las Vegas have released Minecraft 1.0

Essentially this update has all the 1.9 features and addons that many people have already been testing in all the 1.9 pre releases.

This is big news for the team at Mojang, coming from such a humble beginning to getting the game to full release after countless beta updates. This game truly has come such a long way and will continue for a while to come, but it is great to finally see an official 1.0 release.

The Team here at minecraft server australia are very interested to see if the game can continue to grow in popularity going forward. Minecraft has already seen huge success on the PC and now it is getting set to spread its wings onto the Xbox and the iPhone iOS platform.
