Minecraft players outside the mothership and console builds can finally get creative with one of the game’s most powerful tools.

A new Minecraft update has rolled out to Pocket Edition and Windows 10 beta users. I had no idea these two ports were in lockstep, but there you are.

As well as redstone, something most Minecraft players consider pretty essential to the experience if you’re interested in creative building, the update adds rabbits, makes a number of balancing changes and fixes many bugs.

Here are the full patch notes:

    New Features

  • Redstone Circuits: Redstone Wire, Torch, Lamp, Levers, Buttons, Pressure plates, Tripwires, Trapped Chests and Detector Rails. Craft them all!
  • Cute, fluffy, crop-eating, bunnies
  • Desert temples
  • New types of wooden doors
    Removed Features

  • Stonecutter (RIP)
  • Herobrine (RIP)
    Tweaks

  • Redstone can be used to control doors, trapdoors, TNT and rails
  • Faster boats with improved handling
  • Increased item tooltip visibility time in Windows 10 Edition Beta
  • Stack count labels now use a bigger and more readable font
  • Slimes and Ghasts now actually spawn!
  • Hunger restored by food items now match the PC version
  • Flowers created by using Bone Meal on Grass now depend on the biome
  • Skeletons now run away from Wolves
  • Obsidian now breaks in 6.5 seconds rather than 3
  • Minecarts now stack on top of each other
  • Boats now stack
  • Beetroot soup now stacks
  • Fixed Curved Rail and Redstone behaviour
  • Improved Slime spawning
  • Block lag should be significantly reduced. Everything should feel more responsive now
  • Updated door textures all over the place
  • Even more Ghast and Slime spawning
    Bug fixes

  • Mobs no longer suffocate in carpets (because that was kinda cruel)
  • Held items now look better in first-person mode
  • Loads of other bug fixes that are too boring to go into here
