Does anyone know when the next release of Minecraft:Pi Edition is coming out?
My wife teaches at an elementary school and I volunteer there doing a Computer Science club for 5th and 6th grade students. I use Minecraft on the Raspberry Pi as a hook to get the kids into programming after teaching them some basics. They absolutely LOVE it, and the Python API is just at the right level for beginning coders.
I know v0.1.1 has only been out since December, but I was wondering if an updated release is planned anytime soon? The reason I ask is that I've experienced some stability problems with Pi Edition. When the game crashes it often locks up the whole operating system with it.
They are not really interested in pi edition. It is mainly for experimenting with programming in. They are slowly starting to update it
and i hope the next update has survival in!Also which raspberry pi model are you using? The A model does experience crashes and bugs if so purchase the B model (It has 512mb of ram instead of 256mb)
Hope i helped
Last Friday I ran Pi Edition on 5 Raspberry Pis. 2 of them had problems with freezing, both were 512mb model Bs. The other three ran fine - two 512mb models and a 1st run model B with 256mb.
I haven't found anything specific that can get it to freeze for me - it seems random. I don't usually sit down and play minecraft on the raspis - I use it to do programming and stuff and get kids interested in Python/code. Because of this, I haven't spent a great deal of time testing it or trying to stimulate errors.
Is there a bug tracker or anything where I can submit bugs if I can find something repeatable?
