Better Development Progress Update
The amount of suggestion and ideas generated from this "forum" is massive. Sadly the presence of the developer here is minimal to non-existent.
I think it's time to develop a somewhat better development tracker so that we the users have information regarding which feature is being worked on. Thus, involving us more in the development process.
See Minecraft's Bug Tracker for a clearer idea (https://bugs.mojang.com/projects/MC/issues). This will surely benefit the developer (knowing which feature should be worked on first and getting real-time feedback from the users) and most importantly, us, the users.
