Today the Minecraft 1.6 Horse Update patch arrived. Together with a new version of minecraft with lots of new functionality and abilities, there is also a new launcher available for download. To be able to play the 1.6 update, you are required to download a new launcher.
The new launcher HAS to be downloaded and run to be able to play the newest 1.6 update. The old launcher will not automatically download the new version.
