It was reported last week that Mojang was working on a smaller update for Minecraft Pocket Edition that would add a few new features, but its main purpose would be to address a few bugs. Plans change, however, and Mojang has decided to merge update 0.5.1 and 0.6.0 into a single update that will be out soon.
Mojang's Jens Bergentsen announced this morning that the next update for Minecraft Pocket Edition - version 0.6.0 - has been submitted for review. That means players should see the update hit the iOS and Android version of the title in the next one to two weeks.
Here's all the new additions you can expect from version 0.6.0:
As you can see, quite a bit of work went into the latest version of Minecraft's mobile counterpart. There should be plenty of new content here to keep Minecraft Pocket Edition's 5 million players satisfied until the next update.
Unfortunately, not everybody will be able to enjoy this latest update. Mojang announced that this latest version of Minecraft Pocket Edition is dropping support for Android 2.1 and 2.2. You're going to need Android 2.3 or higher now to play the latest version. Older versions of the game will still work on older versions of Android though.
