Next Minecraft beta update due this week; mod support next

Fans (and there are a lot of you out there) of the indie sandbox game Minecraft can finally look forward to a major new update sometime this week. In a post on his Twitter page, the game's creator Markus "Notch" Perrson announced, "The plan is to release 1.4 this week."

The 1.4 patch will include "a rather
ambitious statistics tracking and achievement system" according to a post on Notch's blog site. It will also include the previously announced addition of wolves (the cute kind) to the game as well as the ability to change your spawn point in the game. Beyond the 1.4 update Notch is looking to "spend soome time figuring out exactly what to do with the modding, which should result in a nice modding API."
