Minecraft 1.5 Redstone Update for PC coming early March

Minecraft 1.5 Redstone Update, the upcoming update for the PC version of the game, will release in early March, Jens Bergensten, Minecraft's lead designer and developer tweeted recently.

"Minecraft 1.5 will be released in roughly 2 weeks, early March," Bergensten tweeted.

The Redstone Update will include new features and bug fixes, such as improvements to minecarts, greater consistency to the way redstone ore behaves and a new capacitor block.

A few other notable Redstone Update additions include a daylight detector, which can used to make solar panels when paired with a capacitor, more fireworks, Nether-based ore and removal of the "south/east rule" glitch.
