The lastest Minecraft update adds the promised jungle biome, complete with tameable ocelots and cats, as well as a new mob and much more.

Minecraft 1.2 was very quickly followed by 1.2.2 when pine and birch trees went missing. Whoops.

The update can be accessed as usual directly from the Minecraft launcher. Check out a trailer and the full patch notes below.
