There are a lot of changes that will be in the Minecraft Pocket 0.7.3 update thanks to Tommaso and Jeb joining the development team.
These changes include:
- Chests open and close
- Double width chests
- Yellow bouncing text on the main menu
- Glowing spider eyes
- Sunrise, sunset, moon, and stars.
On the other side though, they have stated that redstone will not be added for quite a while. This comes as no surprise – Mojang mentioned redstone for MCPE at last year’s Minecon and left the topic hanging. Redstone won’t be added for several updates, so no redstone in 0.8.0 or even 0.9.0.
