These changes consist of both new features, and large game structure changes such as replacing the hard-coded “block renderer” with a system that is able to read block shapes from data files, or performance enhancements such as multi-threading the client-side chunk rendering.

After Dinnerbone tweeted out a seemingly innocent image.
Users of Reddit managed to pull the image below from the page.
FiredPlayer from Reddit said:
It's not meaningless.

The picture posted is 2×204960. Dinnerbone split an 854×480 pixel image (usual dimension for screenshots) into 2 pixel wide strips, and put these strips vertically, creating a 2×204960 image. Some code converts it back into the original image, linked above.

The (very crappy) PHP code I used can be found here.

Updated the thread with 1.8.5 information. Mojang are recommending that you update since 1.8.5 fixes some security issues with the game.
