Minecraft 1.5.1 sees The Redstone Update updated

Nice.

After the pre-release of Minecraft 1.5.1 just the other day, Mojang have pulled the great lever that beams the latest update of their game onto our machines. Minecraft 1.5.1 isn't any great leap forward, but it is an important update that fixes some lingering performance issues. Boot up Minecraft and it should update immediately, blessing many of you with improved frame rates and bidding farewell to a serious graphical glitch.

Most importantly, the significant frame-rate drop that many players suffered as a result of the new smooth lighting is now a thing of the past. The horrid white lines being drawn between blocks have also been banished, as has an occasional problem with blocks falling from a height above where they should start falling. Video game physics, eh?
