Minecraft v0.13.0 for Android entered beta earlier this month. Gamers downloaded the game. They tested it. They played with the new Redstone components. They dealt with bunnies. They opened and closed new types of wooden doors. Everything checked out, so now the latest version has gone stable. Non-beta testers are free to download the update straight from Google Play.

The addition of Redstone is a big deal, as it gives players the capability to create all sorts of things using wires, buttons, pressure plates, and other ways of managing power. That said, this release contains the first set of Redstone producers and consumers. The remainder of the functionality is on the way.

But let's not forget the little tweaks. Skeletons now run away from wolves. Ghasts and Slimes actually spawn. Minecarts, boats, and beetroot soup are stackable. Obsidian breaks in 6.5 seconds instead of 3.

I'm going to stop here. You can read the changelog for more
