Just now Jens "Jeb" Bergensten was put in front of the pixel train called Minecraft and already he is showing the will to do stuff.
"The current Minecraft plan is to add more people to the team and add a proper modding api. The biggest advantage of a mod api is that players will be able to run mods without modifying the game's binaries. Currently it's quite a hassle to run mods."
The new Minecraft team will "also work on making the vanilla server suitable for bigger servers."
Woah Woah. Slow down dude.EA, start taking notes.
