Mojang may have a mortal fear of giving releases full version numbers, but that hasn't stopped the company from cranking out new features like mad. Today's update brings a slew of new blocks (including Nether Brick, Block of Quartz, and Sandstone), as well as the ability to build staircases in corners. Oh, and one other thing: the sky finally has clouds now.

The new goodies don't stop there, though. Gravity is also finally in full swing, so now things like sand will fall when the foundations beneath them are removed.

Minecraft, the wildly popular online creativity toy, has also had a pocket version of itself in development for a while. Up until now, though, you could only really mine. As of today, though, Mojang, the company behind the game, has released version 0.3.0 that finally includes (and you may want to sit down for this one) crafting!

Up until this point, you've been able to scavenge around for materials, but if you wanted to do anything with them, you're stuck.

Update: While the app has been updated and will install on all devices now (if they meet performance and memory requirements), please test for functionality using the demo version, here.

Here it is, Minecraft: Pocket Edition for Android - and it's no longer monopolized by Sony's XPERIA Play, as had been the case for the past several months.

DEMO:

This should work on your Android phone or tablet (Honeycomb included!), so get going!

Minecraft, a game that attracted almost 12 million players, over 3 million of whom paid for it, has long been teased for Android by its creator Markus Persson of Mojang. As of today, it's finally available on the Android Market for $6.92 or as a free demo. As expected, the game is currently limited to the Xperia Play - the rest of us will just have to do away with this trailer:

So, are any Xperia Play owners picking the game up?
