UPDATE: Well that didn't take long. Just one day after releasing a second pre-release, Mojang has published the stable build of Minecraft Update 1.10. The game's latest patch can be downloaded via the game launcher and official patch notes can be found in the usual spot.

A new developmental build of Minecraft debuted this week, just as we’ve come to expect when Mojang is working on a new patch, but it looks like there’s a good chance that Minecraft Update 1.10 is going to spend significantly less time in development than the average patch.

It’s been about four months since Mojang published Minecraft Update 1.9 , the culmination of more than six months of developmental work at the developer’s Stockholm HQ. Typically, this is about the time we’d see the first previews of the next Minecraft patch begin to trickle out of the studio, kicking off a journey that lasts many months. But it looks like Mojang is already making final preparations to release Minecraft Update 1.10 . Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the game’s next patch will be nearly as exciting as the Combat Update that arrived back in February.

Our first preview of Minecraft Update 1.10 emerged last month, followed quickly by a round of bug fixes to fix the handful of new items in the game’s next patch, but it seems Mojang has already made enough progress to drop the “snapshot” designation. The studio previously said it hasn’t nailed down a timeline for the debut of Minecraft Update 1.10; however, it will apparently continue to use the “pre-release” designation until the patch is ready for deployment. Without a doubt, this marks the fastest change in nomenclature we’ve seen since we started covering Minecraft , leading us to wonder if Mojang could be planning to release Minecraft Update 1.10 before the end of June.
