Not much news has come out of Mojang regarding the next major release of Minecraft Pocket Edition, besides the screenshot above. Today Johan, the head developer of Minecraft Pocket Edition, revealed there will be new blocks in the update. "Working on 0.8.0, will start adding more blocks later today after the new inventory rendering code is done," he said today on Twitter. What blocks will be included is anyone's guess as of right now, but as always we will keep you updated.
Slightly less exciting but still worth noting, Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.7.6 will be submitted this week, Johan confirmed. However, keep in mind that after the app is submitted to Google Play, Amazon Appstore, and the Apple App Store, it can take anywhere from a day to two weeks to be available for download. The update itself has a few bug fixes with Pocket Realms and gameplay, with no new features. See the original tweet at the source link below.
