The latest patch for Minecraft, v. 1.4.4, is now available as a pre-release, if you’re itching to try out the latest build of the game.
Mostly, 1.4.4 is a series of bug fixes. A pair of the biggest ones were seen in 1.4.3′s pre-release: Mojang has fixed the “can’t swim upwards” issue, as well as the “placed torches jump between walls” issue. There also are another 20 or so minor bugs that Mojang has squashed.
