* Max speed is now the same for all objects (104m/s)

* Beacon (HUD shows a direction/distance to beacon blocks)
* Localization to 15 languages
* Linear and angular velocity of objects is now saved
* Experimental support for much larger worlds


Keen also held a poll asking gamers what their desired next feature would be. Multiplayer gameplay led with 44%, a survival mode was second with 24%, and 10% wanted a 64-bit version of the game.
